During Prohibition, taverns kept afloat thanks to discreet patrons, cheek-turning landlords, and an underground force of ale-trafficking hamsters. Honor their trailblazing efforts with today's Groupon: for $25, you get $50 worth of American eats at The Black Horse Restaurant and Tavern, in Denver.
The Black Horse appeases grubbers and guzzlers with upscale tavern fare, specialty microbrews, and a rotating seasonal wine list. The expansive menu includes starters to stir up mouthwatering tsunamis, such as the philly-cheesesteak pierogies ($8) and battered asparagus fries ($6). Carnivorous main courses keep canines working at full chomp, including the braised pork shoulder ($19), or the Eberly Farms chicken breast, enshrouded in plump gnocchi, house bacon, and ancient mystery ($19).
Even eaters partaking in fringe diets of the gluten-free, vegetarian, or fruit-vampire varieties can easily elect entrees-in-chief with dishes such as the wild-mushroom mac 'n' cheese ($16) or the mediterranean risotto, a hoard of roasted peppers, garlic, tomatoes, and pecorino ($15). Though your Groupon is not valid for alcohol, skilled bartenders help patrons cap off any meal with a specialty mojito or martini, house wine ($6 per glass), or preservative-free microbrew ($3.25-$4.25).
A light-letting stained-glass window highlights the Black Horse's cozy interior, while white umbrellas and wrought-iron tables spruce up outdoor outings on the newly revamped terrace. The hominess of the tavern coalesces in the outdoor log-cabin service bar, making every guest from the sentimental to the hardworking to the nomadic lumberjane feel welcome.
