What You'll Get
Contrary to popular belief, when the moon hits your eye like a big pizza pie, that's a lawsuit. Enjoy Italian cuisine without fear of physical reprisal with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of food and drinks at Charlie's Restaurant & Bar in Yaletown.
Charlie's menu of Italian fare offers a variety of takes on the beloved cuisine of Gucci-gowned gondoliers. Made with fresh, seasonal ingredients, Charlie's homemade artisan pizzas take top honours among the restaurant's patrons. Opt for an 11-inch pizza topped with smoked duck ($16), traverse 360 degrees of braised beefiness with an 11-inch short-rib pizza ($16), or endorse spherical gardens with a 14-inch vegetarian pie covered in mushrooms, artichokes, olives, and more ($18). Pasta dishes include lamb gnocchi ($21) and spaghetti and clams ($19), while appetizing openers such as mussels ($18) and duck-liver pâté ($10) provide palate-whetting starts to the evening's eats. Charlie's mixology madness extends to both desserts and drinks; conclude cuisine-ing with the toffee-and-banana hybrid Banoffee Pie ($10) or toast to 8 a.m. meetings with the Pineapple Express cocktail ($10), a frothy concoction containing Van Gogh Espresso Vodka, grilled pineapple, crushed red chili, brown sugar, and egg white.
Nestled in a soundscape of electronic music spun by live DJs, Charlie's Restaurant & Bar offers patrons a chance to break their parents' warnings not to talk to strangers at a family-style communal table. Or, diners can rub up against the sensation that Elvis's pocket change must have felt in one of the restaurant's cozy black leather booths.
