Like attaching a fake mustache to a Halloween mask or cleverly changing your name from Obi-Wan Kenobi to Ben Kenobi, adding a new ingredient to something familiar can render it delightfully unrecognizable. Enjoy inventive eats with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of creative American dinner fare at Braise.
The whimsical paintings of Cuban artist Luis Abreux line the walls of Braise, a chef-driven restaurant in which hearty and eclectic American fare is crafted from scratch daily. Chef Parind Vora designed the wine list and menu at this Sixth Street restaurant, showcasing his expertise at downhome recreations such as Neiman Ranch beef osso bucco with a chimichurri cream ($15.95 for half plate), and spicy jamaican-jerked pork shoulder, nestled atop a crock pot of black beans and cilantro gremola ($13.95 for half plate). Traditional French onion soup with gruyere cheese ($7.95) appeases pre-entree belly cries, along with asian vegetable spring rolls ($9.95) and escargot, which shows forks how to slow down but still beat speedy vampires with garlic and fresh thyme ($9.95).
