Without the convenience of cafés, people would have no way to grab a quick bite other than plucking fruit from a neighbor's tree and frying eggs atop hot sidewalks. Simplify out-and-about noshing with today's Groupon: for $5, you get $10 worth of café fare at Here CaféBar, located within the Artisphere cultural center in Arlington.
Chefs at Here CaféBar dish out a menu of Latin-influenced sandwiches and pizzas within the Artisphere's diverse space that houses the Dome Theatre and Terrace Gallery. The Here Burger showcases local, dry-aged beef tucked into blankets of paper-thin serrano ham and manchego cheese before gently nesting, like a Russian Barbie doll, atop pillows of avocado ($9.25). Drop in for happy hour (4:30 p.m.–7:30 p.m.) before a performance and firmly grasp an order of pork chorizo sliders ($3.95). Here CaféBar's energetic, abstract primary colors and arched art deco bar throw eyeballs a curveball more unexpected than the sun incorrectly setting a table in the east.
