Growling stomachs can hamper stealth operations, spoil belly dances, and, in extreme cases, induce dogs to attack. Quiet whimpering tummy tones with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of upscale American tapas and drinks at Bistro 33 Rocklin, located inside the Mercedes-Benz of Rocklin.
From its first-floor roost inside the ritzy Mercedes-Benz auto dealership, Bistro 33 Rocklin pleases palates with a mouthwatering menu stocked full of savory small plates and gourmet salads buttressed by a cornucopian drink selection. Share small plates with friends, filling mouths with grilled pancetta prawns ($11.95) and white-bean-and-artichoke dip ($7.95) to fuel debates over the efficiency of 18th-century hybrid vehicles. A triumvirate of spicy buffalo chicken, toasted walnuts, and crisp romaine lettuce join forces with crumbled blue cheese to form hunger-halting Oregon blue cheese salads ($8.95–$12.95). Appease appetites with ginger-cream-drizzled pan-roasted salmon ($21.95), or Kobe-beef meatballs ($19.95) that enliven incisors with an elation they haven't felt since they were spared by the tooth fairy.
Dappled in soothing ceruleans and warm auriferous hues plucked from toasty fires, Bistro 33's upscale dining room ensconces patrons in a colorful world of elegance akin to attending prom with a Smurf. Floor-to-ceiling windows give way to sweeping views of orphaned cars outside for the enjoyment of patrons tippling glasses of Educated Guess cabernet sauvignon ($11) and stranded seafarers sipping bottles of Sierra Nevada ($4), engaged in Davy Jones’ locker-talk.
