What You'll Get
Ever since New Orleans found the wormhole in the depths of its grandmother's armoire, it's been frequenting San Diego in hopes of turning the town Cajun. Take a bite out of its base camp with today's Groupon: for $20, you get $40 worth of Cajun/Creole fusion fare, wine, and more at Gulf Coast Grill on Park Boulevard. This Groupon is only valid for dining in during dinner and cannot be used toward the happy-hour menu or payment of parking tickets.
Gulf Coast Grill's dinner menu weaves a healthy fusion of Cajun, Creole, Tex-Mex, and Caribbean cooking. Start with some bacon-wrapped scallops ($11.95) before touring the Big Easy (house-smoked pork chop with peach chutney, a half order of jambalaya, and house-smoked barbecue ribs, $25.95). The Cajun Combo is composed of three house specialties (seafood gumbo, jambalaya, and hushpuppies, $21.95) to satisfy the three major taste regions of the tongue. Dentist-displeasing desserts include Kahlua crème brûlée garnished with fresh strawberries ($7.95) and old-fashioned bread pudding with sun-dried cherries and bourbon sauce ($7.95).
Pair any portion with Gulf Coast's wine list, which offers an admirable selection of reds, whites, cognacs, and ports until 1 a.m. on weekends; or tipple one of Gulf Coast's specialty N'awlins-themed cocktails and martinis, such as the Fat Tuesday (Meyer's dark rum, orange juice, lime juice, ginger ale, $8.95) or the Bourbon Street (Maker's Mark, Triple Sec, and a splash of sweet and sour, $9.95).
