Now that spinach has been deemed a performance-enhancing vegetable, Popeye's future shortstop career hinges on his transition to goat cheese and flatbread. Get a sailor's worth of energizing comfort food with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of food and coffee at Chelsea Wine Bar, located in El Lago.
Lauded for its “timeless” feel by Houston Press, Chelsea Wine Bar’s creative menu of old-fashioned comfort food pairs perfectly with the restaurant’s weekly live music offerings and waterfront views. Satisfy sandwich-size cravings with the roast-turkey panini, topped with swiss cheese and basil pesto ($6.50), or the brie, tomato, and spinach panini ($6.50). Herbivores and dairy enthusiasts can skip carnivorous options and munch on the cheese flatbread pizza ($5), baked goat-cheese platter ($10), or warm brie plate ($9.50). Dessert-deigning diners can reminisce on childhoods spent roasting marshmallows over the warm glow of the television with the chocolate-mallow conglomeration of Susie’s s’mores ($6.50), which is complemented by a wide selection of gourmet coffee beverages from delectable white mochas ($3.50) to potent double espressos ($2.75).
Nestled beside Taylor Lake, waterfront views from the upper- and lower-level decks of this two-story European-inspired eatery welcome socializing friends and romance-brimming couples with hardwood floors, antique accents, and hand-painted murals, as well as a bar crafted from wood from a Galveston dock. To infuse music into a culinary adventure, visit Chelsea Wine Bar on Wednesdays or weekends for piano, jazz, or singer/songwriter performances.
