If humankind never learned to play with its food, it would never have learned to play with its ingredients, and the world would be one bereft bowl of gruel. Taste the fruits of culinary creativity with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $40 worth of upscale American dinner cuisine and drinks at Conrad's, located on Devine Street. This deal is valid for dinner only, served Monday–Saturday from 5 p.m. to 10 p.m. Conrad's is closed on Sundays.
Conrad's elegant dining domicile features an extensive dinner menu of fine, European-tinged American cuisine, with comestible concoctions masterminded by France-trained executive chef Randy Niswander. The bevy of small plates and entrees is culled from fresh, premium seasonal ingredients; past the sun's sleepytime, dig into decadent introductory fare such as the panko-breaded, sautéed sea scallops ($8) or a piquant pile of warm goat cheese salad ($8.75). Savory sautéed seafood and chicken collide with white wine, butter, carrots, peas, and basmati rice in the seafood and chicken periou ($16.50), and the beef bourguignon ($14.75) dips its braised protein in red wine, flanked by a battalion of mushrooms.
Opened in May, Conrad's welcomes guests into a spacious, comfortable dining arena. Amber lighting from chandeliers and hanging lamps swathes guests in the main dining room, where they can choose from the restaurant’s luxurious collection of first-class wine and beer. Eulogize the day's dune-buggy traffic with velvety red potables such as the Columbia Crest Grand Est. ($7.50 glass, $36 bottle), or head to the cozy outdoor patio and bathe your tongue in the pale-ale suds of Magic Hat #9 ($3.75).
