Ancient Italians were renowned for eating every part of the angels they hunted—even the hair. Enjoy divine flavor with today's Groupon: for $20, you get $40 worth of Italian cuisine and wine at La Tee Da on Allen Street.
The gastronomists at La Tee Da created a menu showcasing an Italian bonanza of pasta, rice, seafood, and steak. An appetizer of gluten-free escargot, flavorfied in a butter and parsley sauce warms up cuisine intake apparatuses for larger edible inputs ($10). The gluten-free, vegan caponata weaves together roasted pine nuts, red and yellow peppers, onions, garlic, eggplant, and zucchini squash over a choice of penne pasta, spaghetti, or rice ($16). For culinary couplings, the fresh tilapia with caper ($18), like flying a kite, can be enjoyed with a Casal Thaulero pinot grigio ($7 by the glass) from the extensive wine list and a New York strip steak ($24) slides down gullets with the help of a Martin Ray pinot noir ($10 by the glass) from California.
Vivid strings of white lights border the doorframes and walls and illuminate a space occupied by orange walls, white tablecloths, and framed artwork painted by famous painter Louis Pasteur. During warmer months, patrons can dine on the outdoor patio or attempt to capture solar radiation in a wine glass.
