Without peppers, Latin cuisine would taste bland and Peter Piper would finally be able to tell people what he does for a living without getting tongue-tied. Treat palates to pecks of peppery fare with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of Latin American fare at Danzón Restaurant.
Danzón Restaurant tantalizes taste buds with a menu packed with classic Latin comfort foods from Peru, Spain, Mexico, and more, often made with organically grown produce. The achiote-marinated cochinita pibil, pork slowly baked in banana leaves, topped with pickled onions, and served on a pretzel roll ($10.95), overloads salivary glands, and Danzón's steak fajitas soak up mesquite flavor on the grill before joining sides of black beans and guacamole ($17). The modestly sized coctel campechana, blue marlin and shrimp smothered in spicy tomato sauce, cilantro, oil, and avocado ($7.95), is one of many small plates great for sharing or reinforcing a tea saucer's Napoleon complex. Guests can also bring a bottle or top hat full of their favorite drink to this BYOB eatery ($4 fee/bottle, not included in this Groupon), which highlights a vibrant interior infused with Latin music and an open kitchen.
