Some expressions are universal, such as saying "Mmm" to signal tastiness, laughing to show enjoyment, and clutching your throat to indicate you're not used to Jupiter's oxygen-free atmosphere. Feast on a galaxy of flavors with today's Groupon: for $20, you get $40 worth of Mediterranean cuisine at Barcelona at Rivers Edge in Verona.
Barcelona at Rivers Edge plays on the delectable notes of Spain, Portugal, France, and Italy to compose a melodious menu of Mediterranean eats. Commence your taste treks with a flavorful heaping of calamares sheathed by olive oil and garlic ($9) or explore the world of edible thistles with grilled artichokes slathered, like a lifeguard's nose, in spiced paprika aioli ($10). The upscale eatery whips up colorful entrees including paella Barcelona ($26), which combines a spread of seafood, chorizo, and chicken lounging amid a fluffy bed of saffron rice, and ravioli de langosta al ajo ($27), lobster-filled pillows of pasta dog-paddling through a sea of garlic-lemon butter.
Overlooking the Allegheny River, the restaurant's scenic views offer an elegant backdrop to its rooftop deck and top-floor lounge. Although this Groupon is not valid for alcohol or sasquatch rides, diners can peruse Barcelona at River Edge's impressive selection of adult-centric beverages including house-made sangria, wine, and cocktails.
