Despite the ease of decision making, eating a meal off a menu often leaves the diner creatively unfulfilled and the food vaguely ink-stained. Order your exact desire with today's Groupon to Fuad's on Westheimer Road. Choose between the following options:
- For $10, you get $20 worth of continental lunch fare.
- For $15, you get $30 worth of continental dinner fare.
Since 1976, Fuad's vittle-wizards have conjured their continental-style meals from diners' whims, breaking the fetters of a printed menu to host a uniquely personalized dining experience. Every day, the larders are carefully stocked with a selection of four to five types of fresh fish, as well as European standbys that include steak, lamb, and marshmallow berets. With this edible arsenal, the pantseat-flying chefs suit any diner's fancy—and if the pantry is lacking, necessary ingredients are freshly harvested from local stores specifically for the occasion. Fuad's fricasseers can also solve foodie's block with expert-envisioned daily specials; past meals have included rack of lamb ($39) or steak au poivre ($36). Lunch items typically range from $12.50 to $25. Fuad's intimate dining room and live piano music present an elegant opportunity for patrons to dream up dinners beyond their own, or their robot butler’s, kitchen skills.
An air of mystery, scented with garlic and herbs, fills Fuad's Restaurant, where head chef Joseph conjures recipes that are never listed on a menu. Instead, diners simply request the dishes they desire, such as Fuad's house specialties of lamb and duck, or recipes such as stuffed chicken breasts and fish fillets topped with crabmeat. Beneath twinkling chandeliers, Brenda, the head bartender, shakes cocktails or plumbs the vast wine cellar for bottles to match any entrée or diner's outfit—so long as that outfit is red, white, or aged in a barrel.
