Like a tongue on a flagpole in February, fusion cuisine results from curiosity and a shortage of popsicles. Rein in restless taste buds with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of American-Korean fusion fare at Green Spoon. Today's deal is valid for breakfast, lunch, or dinner.
Made from scratch and free of MSG, Green Spoon's fusion of American cuisine with Korean flourishes springs from a fern-fringed landscape of leather seating and chartreuse walls. The menu shifts from season to season, currently touting bulgogi, whose fiery barbecued beef teems with mushrooms and green peppers ($14), and the inimitable Rizza, a hybrid of rice, pizza, and kimchi notable for its prolific hip-hop career ($12). Available at lunch and dinner, the korean philly sandwich entertains mouths with a flavor-packed stack of beef, mushrooms, pepper jack cheese, and chipotle aioli ($9). Breakfast fare ranges from cinnamon-raisin french toast ($7.50) to omelets that tuck cheddar, onions, mushrooms, and sausage into matching seersucker suits ($8).
