Eating is necessary for human survival, along with breathing, sleeping, and remaining still while a curious velociraptor rummages through your closet. Practice survival tactics with today’s Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of seasonal fare and drinks at Eric’s Restaurant & Bar, located at the Palm Garden Hotel in Thousand Oaks.
The chefs at Eric’s gather local and seasonal produce and pluck greens from the restaurant’s garden for the new menu’s dishes, which are great for sharing. The California-style eatery’s emphasis on casual is demonstrated by simple entrees, such as grilled filet mignon with farm-fresh veggies ($19.95), and waiters in bathrobes. Pasta, fish, and meat cravings ebb on the arrival of fettuccine alfredo carbonara ($9.95) and prosciutto-wrapped shrimp ($15.95). On Saturday nights, a roasted prime-rib special fills bellies with fresh veggies and a choice of starches ($19.95), and on Friday nights, live music permeates the air. Eric’s full bar stocks a selection of California and house wines, which complement the menu and compliment local artist Laddy Doyle’s pieces.
