Dining out at an Argentine restaurant transports you south of the equator without the disorienting effects of winter in July or clocks that turn counterclockwise. Alter your taste buds' time zone with today's Groupon: for $30, you get $60 worth of Argentine fare and drinks at Divino Lounge & Restaurant in Bethesda.

The chefs at Divino concoct Argentine classics that draw from land and sea. Dinner entrees include the grilled tradicional argentine parrillada ($22), which struggles under the Bunyan-esque weight of two flame-kissed short ribs, two argentine sausages, skirt steak, blood sausage, and sweetbreads. Cooks ladle a heap of seafood paella alongside a whole lobster to create paella de langosta y frutos de mar ($46), which serves two. The pasta con frutos de mar y salsa de langosta bastes its homemade pasta and earth-made seafood in a light lobster sauce ($16). Divino crafts more than 30 different types of hot and cold tapas ($4+) so that diners can share with or punish snowmen as they see fit. The lunch menu echoes dinner with succulent, grilled cuts of steak, tenderloin, and short ribs ($12+).

Divino's wine list embraces an international array of oenological styles and soccer allegiances, particularly emphasizing the vinous offerings of Argentina. On Wednesday evenings, the orange-hued dining room hosts tango dancing and lessons atop its polished hardwood floors.

Divino Lounge & Restaurant

At this authentic South American steak house, customers never want for options. The menu of Argentinean meats and seafood is buttressed by a selection of more than 30 hot and cold tapas and a colossal wine and martini list of international libations. The sips cool overexcited taste buds and pair with lauded entrees such as the parrilla of bone-in short ribs, singled out by Washingtonian as one of Bethesda's greatest dishes. Popular seafood platters arrive in the form of whole lobsters, accompanied by enough seafood paella to sate two diners. To ensure that their sizzling meats are shared with the masses, chefs can also export the fare to private bashes or teddy-bear picnics with catering services.

The eatery's décor reflects its exotic eats: spotlights set orange walls ablaze and highlight paintings more colorful than a Rubik's cube hidden in jello. Clusters of leather couches exude a casual air, providing a sleek contrast to the chic table settings and white linens at booths and tables. Proving that elegance needn't be fussy, customers can also master dance steps at milonga lessons on Wednesdays or host parties in the space almost every day of the week.:m]]
