What You'll Get
One of history's first meetings of Italian fare and seafood came when Christopher Columbus's fettuccine canoe failed to hold up under the onslaught of a school of Mediterranean mackerels, leaving the famed explorer floating to shore atop a meatball. Dive into safer dining with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of Italian food and more at Bistro Catron. Per state law, this deal is not valid on alcohol.
Roll by Bistro Catron for dinner, further fueling your mealtime momentum with mussels sautéed in pesto butter and white wine ($9) or fried shrimp with a citrus cocktail sauce ($8). Terrain-based taste buds can take aim on the chicken parmesan with angel hair pasta ($13) or a bountiful brick of lasagna ($11) with both ground Angus beef and Italian sausage, while Ishmaels can reacquaint themselves with the eats of the oceans by noshing on the blackened salmon ($17), laid out on a bed of asparagus and saffron risotto. Specialty dishes include an Italian onion Salisbury steak ($12) flung upon whipped potatoes and haystack onion straws, as well as fried tilapia ($13), served with fries and corn fritters. Bistro Catron also serves up brunch, with offerings such as the usual benedicts ($9) and chicken and waffle buddy-cop duos ($8).
Keep diets in check with the restaurant's healthy menu, or go wild on a plethora of pasta and Poseidon-approved pabulum. Guests tired of competing in high-wire obstacle courses to secure a reservation at a restaurant can opt for Bistro Catron's online reservation system, with the restaurant's tables politely staying put as they wait for you to sidle up and softly pet them.
