Synchronizing all of your clocks and watches to the next arrival of Haley’s Comet is worthy of a tasty night out. Reward your planning ahead with today's Groupon: for $12 you get $25 worth of edibles and drinkables from Kristos Eastlake.
Kristos Eastlake exists within an aesthetic of Grecian blues and a contemporary cityscape that encourages you to enjoy televised athletics while chomping on a menu of fresh recipes. Delight your tongue with a Horitaki Greek Village salad with green peppers, red onions, tomatoes, cucumbers, olives, and feta with the company of a pita ($8), or feel the hand-warming powers of the grilled gyro with your choice of chicken or lamb beneath veggies and tzatziki ($11). Kristos also serves seven inch, gourmet pita pizzas for lunch and dinner.
Big biters will enjoy the layered smorgasbord that is Yaya’s Pastitsio (a Greek lasagna with beef, feta, béchamel sauce, and marinara) ($15), the lemon herb chicken (with orzo and sautéed seasonal vegetables) ($15), and the keftedes (beef and lamb meatballs joined by potato, lemon, mint, marinara, and feta) ($8). Sweeten any meal with a draft beer before making raucous sporting catcalls that remind everyone in earshot that you love watching athletic displays of athletic performances on televisions.
Today’s Groupon is not valid for happy hour, Valentine’s Day, Thanksgiving, Christmas Eve, Christmas day, or New Year’s Eve.
This Groupon is now redeemable at Ship Canal Grill.
- I love this place! The place is beautiful the food is great and the staff is super friendly. Try the lamb shank and my go to item is the roast beef sandwich. – Jeremy Todd Abraham, Urbanspoon
- They have a unique flavor, unlike any I can remember anywhere. This is a great place for a date, hanging out and watching a game, or just posting up to the bar with some friends. – Rob L., Yelp, 10/29/2009
Ship Canal Grill
At Ship Canal Grill, chefs give a nod to local cuisine with a menu largely composed of seafood from the Pacific Northwest. Though plates such as the salmon pesto and honey-walnut prawns dominate a good chunk of the menu, according to Thrillist(http://gr.pn/MKhCeh), turf-based dishes such as the Overboard lamb sliders with caramelized onions and aioli “pack a punch." The eclectic fare also encompasses petite pizzettas and Mediterranean dishes, which pair neatly with the creative cocktails or wines from a huge drink menu. But the eatery's decor inspires just as much intrigue as the edibles.
Bare light bulbs and rotund pipes hang overhead in homage to an industrial design, complemented by 20th-century construction-era photos from the Museum of History and Industry. An open loft looks out over the main dining area, aglow with candlelight and ringed with tan and periwinkle. At the lower-level bar, a bridge of wrought iron holds miniature vehicles over a marble countertop as light seeps in from tall windows.
In the loft, flat-screen TVs and one large projection screen broadcast games, and the billiards room hosts good-natured competition, as patrons unwind over a game of pool, darts, or dodge-darts. A steady string of events keeps other customers entertained: trivia on Tuesday, standup comedy on Wednesday, and live bands on Friday.
