Buffet dining, in true democratic fashion, allows people to decide what and how much they want to eat, but it can sometimes backfire when citizens use this freedom to fill up on bread. Indulge in culinary liberty with today’s Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of Southern fare and drinks at Carolina’s Restaurant in the Clarion Hotel Downtown
Carolina’s Restaurant's seasoned cooks whip-up a smorgasbord of Southern cuisine for buffet buffs to graze upon. Muffle afternoon stomach yodels at the lunch buffet ($10.95), a vast cornucopia of homemade bisques, fresh veggies, made-to-order pasta, and sweet Southern iced tea, as well as à la carte menu items for those opting not to eat all they can eat. Made-to-order items, including burgers ($6.95), are also available during lunchtime. Evening's arrival signals the temporary departure of buffet servingware, leaving just single-plate delectables such as pasta primavera ($14.95), crab cakes ($21.95), and New York strip jardinière ($27.95). Because the savory flavors of morning don’t come fast enough, Carolina’s Restaurant hosts a late-night breakfast buffet from 10 p.m. to 2 a.m. every Friday and Saturday night, serving up eggs, grits, sausage, and more ($7.95) for a topsy-turvy dining experience that's more fun than chugging egg nog on the Fourth of July. Or kill two meals with one fork during the Sunday brunch buffet, a midmorning food fiesta offering omelet and waffle stations, hearty meats, seafood, and desserts ($19.95).
