A meal out allows for a break from the kitchen, an opportunity for social camaraderie, and a chance to finally unveil advanced flatware-wielding techniques, such as the daring butter-knife triple lindy. Put tine-twirling fingers in action with today's Groupon for upscale American and Mediterranean cuisine at Basil's. Choose between two options:
- For $8, you get $16 worth of lunch or weekend brunch fare.
- For $20, you get $40 worth of dinner fare.
This cozy neighborhood eatery serves a varied menu of comforting fare in a welcoming setting. Weekend brunchers stopping by between 11:30 a.m. and 2:30 p.m. can enjoy morning dishes, such as Basil's Benedict, which updates the staid standard with crab meat, bacon, artichokes, and spinach, tastily accompanied by skillet potatoes and fresh-cut fruit ($15). Lunch is served from 11:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. every other day of the week and treats diners to handheld eats, including the succulent lamb burger ($12) and the piquant prosciutto-and-fresh-mozzarella sandwich ($9). If you're trying to avoid evening chores or an emotionally needy landlord, escape to Basil's between 5:30 p.m. and 10:30 p.m. to hide under a blanket of portobello-mushroom-cognac sauce on a bed of filet mignon ($32), or disguise yourself with a wig of basil pasta, a dish of linguini tossed with fresh mozzarella, tomatoes, garlic, and basil ($13).
Basil's friendly service and romantic atmosphere inspire leisurely meals and constitution-soothing consumption. Woo potential mates in the fireplace-warmed dining room with seductive tabletop thumb wrestling. Nature-loving patrons can opt to sit on the large patio deck and drink in the scenery as they drink in their drinks, and aurally-inclined guests can sit in on regular musical performances at the bar, underscoring notes with the clinking of glasses.
