What You'll Get
Without comfort food, forlorn chimneysweeps would resort to therapy sessions with neighborhood hound dogs and showering ad nauseam. Today's Groupon steps in to prevent such drastic measures: for $10, you get $22 worth of contemporary comfort fare at House Kitchen & Bar, located downtown. This deal is valid for dinner only and is not valid for happy-hour specials.
The foodery boasts a creative menu of reinvented comfort fare, served on weekdays to famished urbanites. Start with an order of the shrimp po' boy sliders ($8.75) or opt for a crab Louise salad ($13.50), served with hardboiled egg, avocado, and tomatoes. Entrees include more than 10 tasty hand-held meals (served with bottomless fries), such as the swiss-blanketed prime-rib dip ($12.50) and the herbivore-friendly black-bean burger ($9.50). Plated portions of updated classics promise to please even the most discerning diner; reward a hard-working copyeditor for reaching her daily quota of sentence-scrubbing by treating her to an order of Kelsey's chicken carbonara pasta ($12.50), loaded with tender green peas and bacon, or indulge carnivorous cravings with the steak tacos ($11.75) with corn salsa and cilantro rice.
The sleek eatery boasts a contemporary-patterned woodwork interior with floor-to-ceiling windows that border the expansive dining area. An outdoor patio offers respite on warm summer nights, and the restaurant's full bar is a popular place to see and be seen in your best formal jumpsuit while sipping a sugar-rimmed coconut-lemon-meringue martini (coconut vodka, Triple Sec, and lemon juice, $7.50). Venture down to House Kitchen & Bar and indulge in soul-comforting fare after a hard day at the track, or gift this Groupon to your mother as a way of saying "thanks" for never teaching you to cook.

- Certain that comfort food is what down-on-their-cash consumers crave after a battering by the economic downturn, Nestor has fashioned a menu of cozy dishes at reasonable (for the real estate) prices. And while the items are playful and creative, they’re also recognizable. – Kira O'Donnell, Sacramento
- I’d heard that House was going to be all about comfort food, and in my book comfort food = mac and cheese. So, I ordered the Five Cheese Elbow Mac & Cheese with Applewood Smoked Bacon and it proved to be the epitome of all things comforting. – Brittany Mohr, SacFoodies.com
- When I ate at House Kitchen & Bar I was reminded of Sweet Home California and all its pesto-tomato-goat-cheese flair. – Eduardo C., Yelp
