Most modern cuisine is a continuation of classic dishes, just as a computer is a slightly modified typewriter and a washing machine is a river in a box. Revel in palatable progress with today’s Groupon to Houlihan’s. Choose between the following options:
For $15, you get $30 toward dinner.
For $10, you get $20 toward lunch.
Houlihan’s kitchen artistes whip up fresh, cooked-to-order meals using high-quality ingredients and locally grown fruits and vegetables. The expansive dinner menu lets guests pair traditional entrees with exquisite drinks or share small plates such as grilled pita bread with white-bean-and-artichoke hummus ($6.25) or a suite of flatbread pizzas ($6.25). Stuff a tummy with a stuffed chicken breast ($16.95), turning your body into an intricate Russian nesting doll of chicken, vegetables, potatoes, and garlic-herb cream cheese surrounding one food-covered doll. Hefty hamburgers ($9.50–$12.50) and veggie burgers ($8.95) weigh up to 10 ounces and can be tricked out with add-ons that include bacon, gorgonzola, and gouda cheese.
During lunch, Houlihan’s nimble staff prepares breezy midday nourishment accompanied by the customer’s choice of salad or soup. Hungry visitors can wash down pairs of mushroom or chipotle chicken enchiladas ($9.95) with pitchers of red or white sangria ($12). On weekdays between 11 a.m. and 2 p.m., groups of up to six guests are guaranteed to receive their order in 15 minutes or less, so they can spend less time waiting and more time making airplane noises while holding food-laden forks.
