Though lunch was originally created in the '70s to address the wheat industry's unprecedented surplus of wraps, it has since become America's most beloved midday meal. With today's deal, $5 gets you $10 worth of healthy, fast lunch fare at Baladas Bistro. The Bistro's convenient location near the convention center means that you can grab a tasty bite on your lunch break, while still having plenty of time to stop by the hotel and pilfer some tiny shampoos. Baladas Bistro is open Monday through Friday for lunch, dessert, and snacks. This Groupon is good for dine-in and carryout.
Baladas Bistro uses the freshest possible ingredients in all the classic lunch fare on its menu. Baladas chops all its ingredients before tossing them together into salads such as the Greek to Me (crispy romaine, feta cheese, cucumber, cherry tomatoes, kalamata olives, and red onion; $3.50 half, $6 full) or the Fruity Fresh (romaine or ﬁeld greens, fresh strawberries and blueberries, and candied walnuts; $3.75 half, $6 full). Equally filling and easier to hold in your clenched fist are Baladas' curry chicken-salad wrap ($5.50) and Mediterranean wrap ($6). If sandwiches sound too simple and paninis sound too plain, put a twist on both with Baladas' pressatas—flour tortillas filled with savory ingredients then grilled until the whole thing is hot and melted. Try the Mexican Melt (chicken, pepper jack cheese, and refried beans, served with salsa, $6) or The Sicilian (salami, ham, pepperoni, and provolone, served with tomato sauce, $6). DIY diners can also create their own salads and build their own pizzas, even though it won't bring Valerie back.
Baladas Bistro's chefs will also happily create special lunches to accommodate special dietary needs, so let them know if you don't eat any foods spelled with the letter k, or if you abstain from eating animals that have been voiced by Steve Carell in an animated movie.
