When heroes embark on epic sea voyages, most run the risk of being eaten by a cyclops or John Lithgow. Reverse the eat-or-be-eaten tide with today's deal: for $15, you get $30 worth of Mediterranean cuisine and drinks at Cafe Benedicte. This Groupon is good for breakfast, lunch, and dinner and is not valid for alcohol.
Cafe Benedicte likens its menu to a magic mirror that reflects all points along the Mediterranean at once, from Andalusian Spain to Greece to North Africa. As such, diners can voyage from a starter of asparagus flan and sautéed crab claws ($9.95) to North African taboule with avocado ($6.95). Take your tongue on an edifying odyssey by touring entrees such as slow-roasted lamb shanks with couscous or saffron rice ($22.95) and a decadent four-ounce peppercorn-crusted fillet and five-ounce lobster thermidor in port wine ($32.95). Omnivores and vegivores alike can savor vegetable dolmates ($12.95), and sweet teeth can delicately nibble on the crêpe brûlée, which one-ups the classic crème brûlée by wrapping it in crêpe and flaming it with Grand Marnier ($7.95).
Although this Groupon is not valid towards alcohol, you can still take advantage of Cafe Benedicte's fleet of wine flights ($10), which highlights the best red and white varietals from the café's impressive international wine list. Cafe Benedicte also has live piano on Friday and Saturday nights, so bring your spouse, family, and cast of Real World: Denver. Call to make a reservation.
This Groupon is valid for dine-in only.
- I have never had a bad experience at this restaurant. I think it is a family owned business, and the food, ambiance, staff and service is par excellence. The desert [sic] Creme Brule [sic] in a crepe is to die for – emonga, UrbanSpoon
- The food is a fusion of different Mediterranean influences - African, European, and Middle Eastern, with a definite nod to the American palate. They've done a good job of creating enough choice that there is really something for every taste here – Cory F., Yelp
