Before fishermen discovered the edibility of fish, they used each catch as bait for larger species, hoping in the end to hook the biggest fish of all—friendship. Buddy up to your taste buds with today's Groupon: for $20, you get $40 worth of seafood, drinks, and gourmet fare at Currents in Tarpon Springs.
Currents sweeps taste buds out to sea on a wave of tasty seafood and carefully crafted gourmet fare. Diners can search the menu to locate flavorful starters such as a plate of prosciutto-wrapped shrimp ($9.80), brie with pesto and almonds ($9.30), or the snails leslie served in brandy with toast points ($7.90). A bowl of lobster-and-crab bisque ($6) could inspire your mouth to throw itself hungrily at New York strip steak ($22.50) or meatloaf in hoisin barbecue sauce ($10.90), although it might prefer to stick with water-related edibles such as the seared salmon ($17.50). Currents boasts an array of red, white, and sparkling wines for cuisine coupling, and also treats diners to a full bar featuring fine brews, dessert drinks, cocktails, and specialty martinis such as the double bubble tini ($8), a mix of Three-O Bubble vodka and pink lemonade.
Currents' corner location offers diners a bright and airy space for relaxed, elegant dining, especially if they like dining in corners. On the rare occasions when the weather is warm, guests can take advantage of Currents' sidewalk seating while enjoying an espresso martini ($8) or a glass of Danzante pinot grigio ($7).
