Food provides essential nutrition, sustenance, and a buffer between forks and knives fighting over who gets shotgun in the dishwasher. Keep cutlery quiescent with today’s Groupon to Flavor in Sidney. This Groupon is valid at either the downtown Pitt Street location or at Flavor 19, located at the Lingan Golf and Country Club. Choose between the following options:
•For $10, you get $20 toward lunch and drinks, valid all day at the downtown location or before 4:30 p.m. at the Flavor 19 location.
•For $25, you get $50 toward dinner and drinks, valid after 4 p.m. at the downtown location or after 4:30 p.m. at the Flavor 19 location.
Flavor’s two engaging eateries provide contemporary dinner and all-day lunch menus comprised of local seafood, pasta, and sandwiches. The chorizo grilled cheese ($9) soaks up daylight rays on the downtown location’s summer menu, along with the BST ($9), which adds spinach and sun-dried-tomato mayo to the classic BLT sandwich. Soups such as roasted-tomato basil ($6+) and seafood chowder ($9+) courageously stand alone, or give in to dish pressure and join up with sandwiches and salads ($7+) in combos ranging from $12 to $14. Seeking a security blanket fit for adults, the dinner-hour salmon comes wrapped in prosciutto ($23), while at Flavor 19, inventively outfitted burgers come in beef and “not beef” varieties, guaranteeing employment for herds of portobello mushrooms and panko-crusted haddock ($7+ for beef; $9 for "not beef"). A tapas menu makes a Tantalus out of tongues, and after the 4 p.m. bell sounds, a plate of gnocchi pleases vegetarians and candied-pecan jugglers alike ($15).
Flavor’s downtown venue makes munching modern in a bistro setting. The private dining room at Flavor 19 shields diners from errant range balls, and live talent in the main room and piquant breezes on the summer patio entice the senses not engaged in taste-bud blooming.
