Navigate your tongue and the tongue of someone you love through a delightful river of deliciousness flowing through our fair city with today's Groupon: $20 gets you $50 worth of tantalizing fare and breathtaking views at Flatwater. This modern River North restaurant is perfect for an evening of romance or a casual brunch on the water.
Take your sweetheart out for a decadent candlelight dinner, leaning over the table to share seared scallops (with sweet potato puree and bacon candy, $15) and sweet nothings. Let your taste buds flirt with grilled New York strip steak (with carrot puree and porcini butter, $32) or roll your tongue over tender pan-seared halibut (with market ratatouille and cilantro, $27). Stop in with your old Magic Camp buddies for a lunch of braised pork tacos (with grilled pineapple, candied habaneros, and pickled red onions, $13) and panzanella (with heirloom tomatoes, fresh mozzarella, basil toco, and ciabatta croutons, $12). Catch a Sunday brunch when mom comes to town and get tipsy on buttermilk pancake sliders (with Bailey's whipped cream and amaretto syrup, $11), or bite into a juicy angus burger (with choice of cheese and pickled tomatillos, $11).
Located right on the river, Flatwater's bay windows look out on a tranquil scene full of romance and possibility. Whether a hint of sun glints on the winter water or the city skyline swims up to meet you in a twinkle of lights, the promise of the city's rich culinary offerings and boundless opportunity will captivate you as you dine. Wrapped in warm chocolate woods and exposed stone, you'll feel as cozy and cared for as a baby bear who wandered indoors, while your eager and knowledgeable server brings your meal out hot and keeps your glasses filled with robust and delicate wines by the glass ($10–$12).
