The first European explorers set sail with hopes of finding new, exotic spices to placate the palates of epicurious monarchs, but all they found were heaps of inedible gold. Pick up where they left off by broadening your mouth's horizons with today's Groupon: for $9, you get $20 worth of Mediterranean fare at Chit Chat Bistro in Arvada.

Chit Chat's owner was born in Greece and opened a series of Italian restaurants in California before buying Chit Chat and upgrading it from a new-world iron-smelting plant to a full-fledged old-world flavor factory. Give fingers some bountiful busy work with Hellenic delicacies including hummus ($5), spinach-stuffed spanakopita ($6), or multi-syllabic mouthfuls of melintzanosalata (mesquite-grilled eggplant, olive oil, and roasted garlic) ($6). Chit Chat presses proteins for succulent secrets with its paninis (starting at $8), including the prosciutto, brie, and fig-laden tocco di dolcezza, whose name roughly translates to "fancy pork addict" in Klingon. Fanciful flapjack fans can wrap up chow sessions with a French-inspired platter of crêpes, available in an array of dinner- and dessert-appropriate flavors. Stay savory with the jambon el fromage, featuring dijon-slathered ham and cheese (starting at $7.50), or sweeten the pot with the tutti fruitti, a tongue-teasing mélange of strawberries, blueberries, bananas, and raspberries garnished with a slice of Little Richard records ($7).

Augmenting the authentic eats are a bevy of brewed beverages including café mochas ($3.45–$3.95), macchiatos ($2.50), and ice lattes ($3.95), alongside a steep selection of steeped teas ($3.50). When not busy dining and drinking, diners can drink in the bygone ambience of Chit Chat's warm, bistro atmosphere, which conjures images of old-world comforts easier than a viewmaster stuffed with Rembrandt paintings.

Chit Chat Bistro

Chef Niko spreads a thin layer of crepe batter over a hot griddle, then stuffs the thin pancakes with sweet and savory ingredients to serve alongside spit-roasted gyro wraps. He loads up plates with saganaki, pan-fried kasseri cheese, and paninis stuffed with brie, fig jam, and prosciutto, which are soon delivered to diners listening to live entertainment.

Each Sunday, chef Niko stocks the brunch buffet with appetizers such as grilled pita bread and hummus, as well as entrees such as made-to-order crepes filled with Nutella and topped with fresh fruit and whipped cream. While sipping steaming mugs of Illy coffee, patrons can gather around the fire pit on the outdoor patio to tell eerie stories of long-removed menu items appearing on the chef’s nightstand at midnight.
