Food items are often named for their place of creation: french fries come from France, english muffins hail from the British Empire, and onion rings were conceived by a team of astronauts orbiting Saturn. Quell interstellar appetites with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of classic fare at Flow Lounge & Grill. Flow is open Monday–Saturday from 4 p.m. to 2 a.m., and minors are only permitted in the restaurant until 10 p.m.
Flow Lounge & Grill's crafty chefs toss together a full menu of salads, sandwiches, and burgers. One kilo of chicken wings wake up taste buds by ringing a large, clanging cowbell that announces the arrival of a variety of flavours, such as honey garlic and hotyaki ($11). Strips of sirloin come grilled to the diner's desired internal temperature before tap dancing with veggies, cheese, and greek dressing atop romaine lettuce in a grilled-sirloin greek salad ($13), and the Big Mouth Monster burger showcases two 8-ounce Alberta-beef patties stacked with bacon and cheese ($20). Meanwhile, 6 ounces of free-range grilled chicken breast marinates in teriyaki sauce before donning a rum-pineapple-ring hat and slipping between two slices of grilled baguette ($9).
Diners can sip domestic draft beer ($6.25) and premium liquor ($6.25) at Flow's full, marble-topped bar. Watch your favourite sporting event on one of several flat-screen TVs, or ponder which barbecue sauce would best top the moon while gazing out the skylights that outline the eatery's arched ceilings.
