Hunger, unlike ambulance sirens, meningitis, and restraining orders, is not something you can safely ignore. Answer the mighty call of a bellowing belly with today's Groupon, which gets you upscale American fare at flora, located in Arlington. Choose between the following Groupons:
- For $25, you get $50 worth of food for dinner only.
- For $15, you get $30 worth of food for Sunday brunch only.
Flora serves beautifully presented American cuisine, infused with French and Italian flavors by Chef Bob Sargent, and made using fresh vegetables and locally sourced ingredients. Flora's menu, like the direction of the wind or the guest on a morning talk-radio show, is subject to change, but recent enticing entrees have included pan-roasted trout ($26), complemented by Sardinian couscous and basil broth. Underdressed diners can fasten an edible bow tie with the fettuccine and white shrimp ($18), enhanced with artichokes and lemon-butter sauce. Each of flora's appetizers includes a smattering of assortment bites, such as its tray of peppery greens, fried oysters, grilled ham, and scallion dressing ($11). Palm-tree wrestlers can stay tropical with the coconut rice pudding ($8) for dessert.
You can also choose to wake up to flora's brunch buffet ($17), available from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Sundays. While the buffet fare can vary, you'll likely find eggs cooked to your liking, home-fried potatoes, cheddar-infused grits, and a smorgasbord of breakfast meat. Before guests head home to watch the commercial breaks of football games, they can sip on coffee and snack on a chewy brownie.
Enjoy the finely crafted fare of Chef Sargent, who holds a degree from Vermont's New England Culinary Institute, while dining within flora's elegant dining room. Located in a renovated, 1920s brick-and-granite building, flora's two-story windows, vaulted ceilings, and fish-laden aquarium please the eyes as much as the food pleases the taste buds and the songs of Quiet Riot please the inner air guitarist.
Not valid with other offers. Dine-in only.
