During the 1920s, expatriate authors flocked to the cafés of Paris after a study revealed a direct correlation between artistic inspiration and the proximity of pastry displays. Let café fare inspire enlightening conversation with today's Groupon: for $12, you get a meal for two at Banksy's Café in Mount Washington (up to a $32.32 total value). Choose between two options:
- Any two burger, sandwich, or salad meal from the Higher Standards section of the menu (up to a $13 value each)
- Any two medium drinks (a $2.38 value each)
Banksy's Café chefs Will and Rob cultivate a cornucopia of light gourmet fare made from fresh ingredients. The menu's Higher Standards section plays host to hearty helpings such as the Bay Mac, a lump-crab cake buried beneath an avalanche of shrimp salad, lettuce, and tomato (a $13 value). Savvy chefs can also customize quarter-pound Angus beef burgers (a $7 value) with different types of cheese and dressing, enfranchising guests to vote for their favorite combo or accuse ambitious cheddar of gerrymandering. Alternatively, build your own sandwich from three varieties of meat and a choice of bread and cheese (a $7 value) or dunk a half-sandwich in a house-made soup (an $8 value). The chef plates each of the 13 options with a healthy side, such as mayo-free california coleslaw or cuban rice salad, depending on his whims and the current wind direction.
Banksy's Café hints at international élan with tan, red, and black plaid accents, as well as a wall of clocks that display the current time in exotic locales such as Moscow or Al Gore’s left shoe. Glass cases showcase baked goodies and side dishes, and diners can sit at patio tables beneath the black-and-red-striped awning to double-date with a pair of sunbeams.
