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 dinner 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 ($13.99) 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 ($16.99) or fortify the body for a grueling Die Hard marathon with the pepper-bacon-wrapped fillet, 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.
