The monopoly tycoons of the nineteenth century traditionally did their wheeling and dealing at fine-dining establishments, cleverly concealing the fact that they still lived with their parents. Keep business savvy and delicious with today's Groupon: for $35, you get $70 worth of dinner fare ($35 for $80 Tuesday through Thursday) or $10 for $20 worth of lunch fare at Bonnell's Fine Texas Cuisine on Bryant Irvin Road.
Prestigious head chef Jon Bonnell and his team of culinary artists cook using strokes of regional style with spices that fuse southwestern, Creole, and Mexican influences. The lunch menu oozes flavor with a fire-roasted chili relleno, stuffed with grilled vegetables, basil pesto, and cheese ($15). The dinner menu includes the mixed grill, where homemade Andouille sausage and a wild boar chop are topped with wild game demi-glace and served with roasted green chili cheese grits and grilled cactus. Then, add a choice of elk or buffalo tenderloin, grilled organic quail, lamb loin, pheasant, or a griffon flank steak ($35+).
