Consistently delicious fare provides a degree of stability in an unstable world filled with political upheaval, wobbly side tables, and vertigo-stricken housecats. Plant forks firmly into your food with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of contemporary American fare at Café Bella.

A café by day and bistro by night, Café Bella serves up a tantalizing, weekly shifting menu of contemporary American fare engineered by executive chef Cesar Casas and tinged with Latin, French, and Italian influences. Begin your epicurean virtuoso with a shared appetizer, such as the mediterranean platter, a tasty cadre of hummus, fresh olives, feta, greek salad, and pita ($7.95), or individual chalices of the homemade soup of the day ($4.95). Entrees include a robust rib-eye Angus steak, topped with madeira wine sauce and paired with fresh vegetables and mashed potatoes ($15.95). Neptune's dual net and crossbow harnesses the surf 'n' turf Tour de Bella entree, featuring steak flanked by shrimp and jerk chicken breast with a side of mashed potatoes ($19.95). The belly-besieging bounty concludes with a dessert, such as the handcrafted choco flan ($3.50), the sumptuous tres leches ($3.50), or the mysterious dessert of the week, whose true identity is carefully concealed inside Theodore Roosevelt's Rushmore nose until plating time.

Café Bella's exposed-brick walls boast eye-catching pieces from local artists, and the eatery's hardwood floors and dark-stained tables catch airborne morsels as diners dig voraciously into their fill. As a BYOB establishment, the bistro invites diners to sport their own favorite bottles to pair with a meal or to enjoy on the casual street-side patio, which offers shaded shelter during the summer.

Café Bella

International flavors shape the weekly changing menu at Café Bella, which was recently named a Top 40 Chicago restaurant by the Food Network and was one of 44 restaurants endorsed to be showcased on their new website. The spot transitions from daytime café to evening BYOB bistro, starting the day with steaming pours of house-blend coffee, café caramelos, and a selection of ciabatta sandwiches, wraps, and pitas.

For dinnertime, chefs may conjure up a mix of Mexican-style cheese steak sandwichs, steaks, seafood, and the spot's popular caribbean jerk chicken breast, accompanied by mashed potatoes with a madeira sauce and an edible steel drum set.

As diners savor preservative-free, all-natural fare, they can admire a spackling of local artwork making exposed-brick walls decent. They can also enjoy their dishes out on the street-side patio during warm months.

Steak Quesadilla, Black Rose and Tres Leches were so good! Caribbean Chicken was fine as well. My husband and I want to go back there. Thanks to Groupon.

The ceviche was very good. I usually don't care for it, but this version was tasty, finely chopped ingredients that went well with the tortilla chips.
