Growling stomachs can hamper stealth operations, spoil belly dances, and, in extreme cases, induce dogs to attack. Quiet whimpering tummy tones with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of seafood, pasta, drinks, and more at Canopy Grill Restaurant & Bar in Lafayette.
Canopy Grill deals swiftly with hunger and thirst, defeating them with lunch and dinner menus that feature American fare dunked in a tasty pot of tropics. Begin your munch session by chowing on the cravo, a deep-fried avocado half stuffed with crabmeat, peppers, and onions ($9 for lunch, $9.50 for dinner).
More than 25 cocktails wait patiently to meet tongues—try the Shark Bite, a mix of dark rum, orange juice, and grenadine ($6.25), while chewing on blackened fish tacos ($10 for lunch, $13.50 for dinner), or pair carne asada tostadas ($12.50 for lunch, $13.75 for dinner) with one of six rotating beers on tap. The pulled-pork sandwich ($9.50 lunch, $9.75 dinner) offers a tasty portion of slow-cooked pig that races down your throat with the help of a Bay Breeze, a mixture of vodka and juice of pineapple and cranberry ($6.50).
Dinner entrees include garlic-infused blue steak pasta, smothered in a rich blue-cheese cream sauce ($16.50), and the penne-based shrimp habanero, with mangos, pineapples, and habenero peppers cooling off in a pool of ginger and coconut milk ($16.50).
Guests stopping by Canopy Grill anytime Sunday through Thursday should guard their mouths, or else a complimentary order of chips and salsa will try to jump inside. Those looking to entertain toes as well as tongues can tap away to live music on Saturday evenings.
