Hot potato, the earliest dish designed to be passed, is nearly extinct due to the constant ravages of grade-school appetites. Today's Groupon revives shifting sustenance: for $10, you get $20 worth of designed-to-share fare and drinks at Dandelion Market, located in the Fourth Ward.
Dandelion Market serves salads and flatbreads at lunch and a collection of small, shareable plates at dinner. For portable proteins, select between grilled-steak skewers ($12) or grilled-lamb lollipops ($16). Paired well with a bottle of wine ($25), ale-simmered sausage bites ($6) come with hot sweet mustard to give each bite bite. Every Monday, cover bands serenade patrons while Dandelion serves $3 pints from the selection of 24 craft-style brews.
Dandelion Market's weekend brunch features blueberry pancakes ($8) and the crêpe of the day (market price). Served with a Bloody Mary or a mimosa, the Hangover Hash ($14) toasts bygone nights with classy morning beverages. Gather a gaggle of friends and order one of everything on Dandelion Market's dinner menu ($225).

- …named for a local gathering place in Dublin, Ireland and is the closest thing to a warm blanket you’ll find. – Wax Mama
- The exposed brick interior and rustic, dark, hardwood floors create a really relaxed atmosphere. You know, the sort of scene that makes you want to enjoy a duck confit flatbread and hearty ale. – Tiffy, Urbanspoon
- Food was great and service was perfect. – ErinandTony, TripAdvisor
