A full, nourishing meal supplies the body with resources and gives penance to the fiber pharaoh, buried inside the food pyramid with seven to 13 servings of grains. Pay tribute to other nutritional rulers with today's Groupon: for $9, you get any pre-prepared half-sized entree (which serves three people) from Cena (a $19 value), plus 10% off any single bottle of wine from its wine shop. Call or email at least 48 hours in advance of picking up your pre-made banquet at Cena's East Ocean View location.
Cena offers time-strapped families and plan-aheaders quick, economical, and delicious dinner options good to take home or on vacation. While the menu changes every two weeks, current offerings include the stuffed beef tenderloin, rolled with fresh spinach, roasted, peppers, and mozzarella, while a mango cilantro sauce and fresh peppers and onions top the hearty Caribbean chicken. Each half-sized entree from Cena's rotating menu feeds three people. Cena also features a small Bolivian river's worth of wines, and the well-informed staff will happily assist part-time winos in choosing a suitable bottle to pair with your meal or C-SPAN marathon. The crisp, fruity notes of Maso Canali pinot grigio agreeably complement Cena's pork tenderloin in shallot sauce, while the floral tones of L'Ecole No. 41 Chenin blanc go gorgeously with the mahi-mahi fish tacos, like hot dogs sitting in the bleachers of a hot-dog-eating contest.
Each Cena meal is packed with fresh, preservative-free ingredients, and uses aged beef and hormone-free chicken whenever possible. Vegetarians or those on a sodium-restricted diet shouldn't feel left out, as the staff is pumped to specially prepare any entree to fulfill customers' needs and to grant three of their wishes, so long as one of them isn't for unlimited wishes.
Cena is closed Sundays and Mondays.
