Making a good sandwich, like removing a child’s head from between stair balusters, requires delicate handling and a lot of mayonnaise. Marvel at skilled condiment usage with today’s Groupon to Culinary Delights by Feist and Napoleon’s Cafe in Dulles, Virginia. Choose between the following options:
- For $10, you get $20 worth of breakfast and lunch fare.
- For $50, you get $100 worth of take-out catering platters.
The epicurean engineers at Culinary Delights by Feist transform fresh, local ingredients into inventive take-out platters while chefs at neighboring Napoleon’s Cafe serve up samples of the catering specialties in the form of breakfast eats, sandwiches, and wraps. The café’s menu shepherds taste buds through the day with custom-built breakfast sandwiches and wraps ($2.50+) followed by paninis ($6.95) and sizzling melts, such as the Cuban ($6.95) with layers of roasted, spiced pork polka-dotted with fried onions and pickles. An ever-rotating roster of weekly specials guest star on the café’s cast with entrees such as meat-and-vegetable lasagna ($7.95), pulled-pork sandwiches ($7.95), and barbecue ribs tired of being typecast as a movie-theater snack.
The take-out catering platters ($100 each) range from snack-friendly spreads sized for 25–30 people to breakfast feasts, such as the danish-and-bagel tray, scaled to slake up to 35 appetites with fresh-baked filled croissants, sticky buns, and pecan twists. The assorted-sweets-and-torte platter cascades across tabletops with a rainbow of desserts including award winning chocolate-raspberry truffles, pumpkin-cream-cheese bars, and apple tarts arching toward a pot of gold guarded by protective, sugar-buzzed leprechauns.
