Tomatoes, known for being rich in antioxidants, are also materially valuable, which explains why they are often donated to the faces of pauper comedians. Unlock the power of tomatoes with today's Groupon: for $20, you get $40 worth of Italian fare and drinks at Cucina Biagio in Harwood Heights.
Cucina Biagio dispels hunger pangs with flavorful soups, salads, and hearty Italian pastas and pizzas. Ravenous appetites get a playful ribbing from starters such as the minestrone zuppa ($2.95/cup, $4.25/bowl) or the caprese salad, mozzarella flanked by loyal sidekicks tomato and red onion and dressed for digestive success in a light balsamic vinaigrette ($8.95). Fill up with the certified-Angus-beef entrees, such as the filet mignon in a red-wine mushroom sauce served with roasted potatoes and vegetables ($30.95), or bear down on a slew of wood-fired-oven pizzas, available in a variety of styles—stuffed, pan, thin-crust, and earth-crust ($10.95).
Cucina Biagio clads its setting in the delicate pastels of the Mediterranean. Inside, a panoply of windows, white-linen tablecloths, and luminous chandeliers wash the dining room in soft light, making it an ideal choice for a romantic evening for two or for a group celebrating the invention of the meatball hackey-sack.
