Tables at fine-dining restaurants are known for their fancy white-linen outfits, unlike tables in home kitchens, which are notorious for going nude. Dress up for a nice meal with today’s Groupon to Crescent Moon Wine Bar and Restaurant in Spring. Choose between the following options:
- For $25, you get $50 worth of dinner.
- For $15, you get $30 worth of lunch.<p>
Tuscany-inspired stone arches soar over leather chairs clustered around candlelit tables where diners tuck into Crescent Moon Wine Bar and Restaurant’s compilation of tender Italian meats, pizzas, and paninis. During dinner rendezvous, 8-ounce braised beef short rib steeped since sunrise in Shiner Bock gravy falls from bones to plates piled with mashed potatoes, broccolini, and fried brussels sprouts ($24). A sheen of pomegranate glaze glistens like a diamond ring fresh from the rock tumbler atop pan-seared salmon fillets ($18). The lunch menu accentuates lighter fare with noshes such as the merlot panini, a sizzling herbed chicken breast and bacon with mushrooms and swiss cheese clamped in the vise-like grip of a white or wheat bun ($10). Marco pizzas hoist arugula, apples, and truffle oil spread across swiss and brie cheese to new homes in mouths ($12, add shaved prosciutto for $2) or the secret compartment of a magician’s top hat.
Musicians pump out a soft score for feasts nearly every night amid racks lined with more than 300 wines (though today’s Groupon is not valid for alcohol). Exposed wooden beams hover overhead like the spirits of overprotective ancestors, while Italian-inspired paintings punctuate alternating stone and stucco walls.
Crescent Moon Wine Bar and Restaurant
Upon their arrival, visitors to Crescent Moon Wine Bar and Restaurant will be faced with a difficult decision—they'll have to decide on a wine. The extensive list spans more than 300 selections available by the glass or bottle. Then they'll have to select something to nibble on, perhaps the beef short ribs slow cooked in a Shiner Bock gravy or the filet-and-shrimp surf 'n' turf accompanied garlic truffled mashed potatoes.
And the whole time, they'll be distracted by their impressive surroundings, including stone-arches soaring high above them, stone walls, and a stage where live bands play nearly every day of the week. In front of this stage is an open space, and they'll have to decide if they want to dance here alongside the couples or organize a game of Freeze Tag.
