A spaghetti noodle, much like a swimming-pool noodle, maintains its shape until it's exposed to boiling water or sat on by children. Savor pasta's forced flexibility with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of Italian cuisine at Bazil.
Bazil's team of resident chefs channel the culinary traditions of the Old World to cook a menu of Italian specialties. Ropes of fettuccine lasso stampeding appetites, twirling around shrimp, scallops, clams, and mussels in the seafood alfredo ($16.95) and ensnaring lightly pounded meat in the veal parmigiano ($15.95). Taste of Italy platters with homemade lasagna, chicken parmigiano, and homemade manicotti ($16.95) allow diners to sample Italy's most dulcet culinary notes without the hassle of stealing a singing gondolier's lunchbox. Post-meal cooldowns commence with original funnel cake ($5.95) topped with caramel and vanilla-bean ice cream.
Rustic Italian vibes emanate from the rough-hewn stone walls that surround a charming wooden-framed bar area. Cozy up in a plush booth or get situated in an outdoor seating area, which affords diners ample opportunities for tossing food scraps to hungry fire hydrants.
