When deprived of flavorful sustenance, the mouth will often retaliate by shouting your bank-account number at sporting events or turning every sentence into a high-pitched jingle. Tame an unruly tongue with today’s Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of internationally inspired American fare and drinks at Bistro 44
Bistro 44 anchors its dinner menu with stomach-delighting salads, sandwiches, and meaty entrees that earned the establishment Tucson Lifestyle Magazine's Silver Award for Best Bistro in 2011. Hearty greens freshen the evening dining scene, including an Asian-inspired ahi tuna salad that pairs seared rare fish with greens, carrots, wontons, and sesame-ginger dressing ($16.99). A clutch of three fish tacos clutches avocado, salsa fresca, sautéed onions, and cabbage in a tortilla with cilantro-lime sauce. Diners can opt for the pork tenderloin with fingerling potatoes ($16.50) or fortify the body for a grueling Die Hard marathon with the pepper-bacon-wrapped filet, an 8-ounce slab of certified Angus beef paired with cabernet-veal glace and garlic au gratin potatoes ($26.99). A robust kids' menu enumerates entree combinations for petite tastes, such as grilled chicken with mashed potatoes and a drink ($4.95).
Bistro 44's inviting dining room and open-air patio occupy a prime position in front of the Tucson Country Club. Amid the bucolic scenery, guests swirl mixed drinks, gulp domestic beers, and put out small belly-fires with draft brews including Bass Ale and Stella Artois.
