Before finding work as a professional know-it-all, Albert Einstein pushed the limits of food physics as a chef, famously discovering that edibility is relatively equal to macaroni and cabbage served on a square plate. Enjoy game-changing chow with today's Groupon: for $20, you get $40 worth of food and drink at H5O bistro & bar, located inside Hotel Fifty. This Groupon is not valid in conjunction with happy-hour specials or other offers.

H5O's dinner menu, like a performance-art piece or the nuances of the Teapot Dome Scandal, defies easy description as it draws from a myriad of inspirations and the innovative spirit of Chef Nicholas Yanes. Try an appetizer of hickory-smoked salmon fritters ($6) with lemon, capers, and spicy parsley cream, followed up by a 10-ounce pork chop ($19), glazed with miso-honey sauce and served with fried rice. Homesick Mediterranean mermaids can dine on the jumbo-shrimp scampi ($23) while philatelists fill up on the phalanx of phlavor that is the 14-ounce center-cut ribeye ($31), served with mashed Yukon-gold potatoes and asparagus. Check the wine list for available libations.

H5O's purple tones, modern furnishings, and super-sleek lighting pair admirably with the temporal anomaly in the dining area to create a chic, ultramodern dining experience that may or may not violate the Prime Directive.

Reviews

H5O bistro & bar has received some great press, including features in Oregon magazine and Think Tasty. Yelpers give it 3.5 stars on average, and OpenTablers give it a four-star average:

H5O bistro & bar

H5O bistro & bar executive chef Ron Baker crafts innovative dishes with local and organic ingredients and sustainably sourced seafood. His efforts helped earn the eatery—located inside Hotel Fifty—a 2012 Diner’s Choice Award of Best American Food from OpenTable. Ron's recipes roster includes salmon covered in a shrimp cracker crust and beef tenderloin paired with duck-fat-roasted fingerling potatoes. Even his breakfast menu features myriad eclectic dishes, from the fried-chicken benedict to the french toast made with challah soaked in Grand Marnier custard.

The restaurant itself is as innovative as the menu, with touches such as an oversize painting of colorful koi on one wall and flames that erupt from a bed of rocks in the modern open fireplace. In the lounge area, a white table shaped like a face holds seasonally changing cocktails and vinos from the wine cellar. During the warmer months, outdoor seating proffers sweeping views of the waterfront located a frisbee toss away, which means it's 14 miles away if you're really good at frisbee.
