The Mediterranean Sea shaped some of the world's most ancient civilizations, who gathered by its shores to dive for the delicious hummos, baba ghanoush, and baclava growing beneath its crystal waves. Transport to this legendary culinary coast with today's Groupon: for $5, you get $10 worth of Mediterranean fare and drinks at By the Sea on North Palm Avenue.

For more than 15 years, By the Sea has been gifting guests with a menu of authentic Mediterranean-style vittles spiced up with a Caribbean flair. Office workers looking for a light lunch break after a hectic morning of dodging wrecking balls can order an elegantly esculent starter from By the Sea’s carte du jour, such as hummos ($5.95), tabbouli (a lemon- and olive-oil-doused dish of finely chopped parsley, tomatoes, onions, and bulgar wheat, $5.95), or four falafels fried in corn oil ($4.95). After a bowl of black-bean soup ($3.50), put your best fork forward into a plate of lemon chicken ($11.95), sautéed in lemons, white wine, olive oil, and cream sauce. Otherwise, daredevil diners can sword swallow shish kebabs of marinated lamb ($13.95) or wrestle a charbroiled Cajun catfish ($11.95) for digestion rights. By the Sea's board of fare covers Mediterranean cultures both extant and extinct, including the Phoenician chicken ($10.95), the Middle Eastern shawerma ($9.95), and the Moroccan kafta ($11.95), a charbroiled stew of minced ground beef and lamb mixed with parsley, onions, and spices. To end your classic Mediterranean meal with less bloodshed than most classic Mediterranean plays, wash down slices of cheesecake ($4) or puddings of rice ($3) with a cup of coffee or tea ($1.50).

By the Sea’s name was inspired by Paul Gauguin’s famous 1887 oil painting By the Seashore, which diners have to realistically reproduce with a hairbrush and a bucket of melted Crayolas in order to gain access to the restaurant. Take a quick break from your attempts to swim around the world, and refuel your amphibious body with a bite or two hundred at By the Sea.
