What You'll Get
Hot potato, the earliest dish designed to be passed, is nearly extinct due to the constant ravages of grade-school appetites. Revive shifting sustenance with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of fare at Flat Iron Tapas Bar & Lounge located inside the Bulfinch Hotel.
Flat Iron, an American-style tapas bar, infuses delectable small plates with a flavorful, international flair. The sophisticated menu features shareable delights such as coconut-crusted fried shrimp served with a chili plum sauce ($7). Dig into a fontina-topped plate of fried risotto with mushrooms and tomato coulis ($8), or join the Lollypop Guild's gourmet division with an order of lamb lollies that arrive swimming an apple-wine and mint reduction ($10). Round off your mealsperience with a dessert of sinfully sweet chocolate truffles served with raspberry coulis and a sparkling dessert wine ($13).
Flat Iron's elegant dining space features simple black tables and funky red textured walls. Shake in a semi-coordinated fashion to the sounds of live music every Thursday and Friday evening from 7 p.m. until 11 p.m.
- Tender pork belly confit has a similarly electrifying effect. It's cured in garlic, bay leaf, thyme, pimento, and peppercorn; then slow-cooked in olive oil, turning the meat decadently rich. – Sascha Pfeiffer, The Boston Globe
- Parmesan Gnochi [sic]...so soft and tender...served with duck confit that was out of this world... – Ryan S., Yelp
