Mediterranean civilizations invented many lasting concepts, developing astronomy to explain the cosmos and democracy to equally divide lamb kebabs. Split a skewer with today's Groupon: for $25, you get $50 worth of anything on the dinner or tasting menus at Boardwalk Bistro.

The chefs at the Zagat-rated Boardwalk Bistro fuse authentic Old World Mediterranean dishes with contemporary style in fresh tapas, steak, seafood, and house-made desserts. Spanish tapas, such as grilled lamb carnitas cooked with onions and served atop a corn tortilla ($10), whet appetites alongside Mediterranean sampler platters ($12), whose lamb-and-saffron-rice dolmathes, hummus, greek olives and tabouleh light up taste buds like a roman candle in a hall of mirrors. Diners can graze on surf or turf entrees such as three jumbo shrimp stuffed with crab and crowned with delicate lobster mousse ($32) or a herb-encrusted pork tenderloin marinated in brandy-shallot bordelaise sauce, flanked by asparagus, potato, and cranberry hash ($22).

Boardwalk Bistro's antique-style furniture and colorful tile and tapestry décor welcome patrons with an informal, Middle Eastern ambience. The exposed-stone walls resound with live music and a tagine top standing in for a cowbell on Friday and Saturday evening.

Boardwalk Bistro

In 1977, Barbara Hunt decided to set aside a year of her life to explore the world and learn about its diverse food and flavor structures. So, she plucked a low-hanging 30,000-mile Pan Am travel voucher from the nearest voucher tree and did just that. One dietetics degree and a decade later, Boardwalk Bistro was born. Now, Barbara and two executive chefs focus their three collective minds on empty plates, envisioning authentic Old-World Mediterranean dishes prepared with contemporary style. Barbara shines as the bistro's sommelier while their collective concentration brings forth bouillabaisse (seafood stew), paella valencia (with rabbit, chicken, duck, and chorizo), spanish tapas that warm up stomachs the same way baseball players warm up for big games (by eating tapas), and plenty of other meaty and vegetarian plates. Boardwalk Bistro's antique-style furniture and colorful decor create an informal, Mediterranean ambiance perfect for enjoying a trio of raspberry, lemon, and mango sorbets, which chill palates more delicately than a midwinter game of open-mouthed freeze tag. The exposed-stone walls resound with live music and a tagine top standing in for a cowbell on Friday and Saturday evenings.
