What You'll Get
One of the great simple pleasures of traveling abroad is stumbling upon a restaurant frequented by locals, followed closely by bathing in gelato and loudly explaining why everything in America is better. Replicate that feeling with today’s Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of bistro dinner fare at Califas Bistro.
Fusing classic European–cooking techniques with California flavors, Califas Café & Bistro blends eclectic flavors in a dinner menu stocked with fresh, local ingredients. Pan seared halibut ($22) mingles with mango curry sauce atop a pasture of hibiscus rice, and the all-natural beef of a rib eye steak ($25) catches a buzz in with dry rub seasonings before teaming up with roasted potatoes. Moonlighting as culinary fashionistas, adobo marinated pork chops ($17) accessorize with a flair of whipped potatoes and a micro-green salad. Feasts can be complemented by a selection of tap beers and Italian sodas or sips from the extensive wine menu, which features red, white, and wish-granting nectar by the bottle ($18+) and glass ($6+).
Califas' dimly lit interior welcomes diners with golden stucco walls adorned with arced murals of rolling hills and pristine pastures, creating a realistic escape to a faraway oasis without the jet lag or hordes of seagulls brazenly squawking at your plate in envy.
