Eating is necessary for human survival, along with breathing, sleeping, and remaining still while a curious velociraptor rummages through your closet. Practice survival tactics with today’s Groupon: for $12, you get $25 worth of Napa Valley–inspired dinner fare and non-alcoholic drinks at Label 7 in Pittsford.
Inspired by the cuisine of California's Napa Valley, the skilled chefs at Label 7 sling an international menu that runs the gamut from baja enchiladas to French-American bistro dishes. Edible escapades can begin with a starter of tuna tartar accompanied by a flavorful watermelon-jicama slaw ($11), or the BLT Napoleon salad with fresh pillows of mozzarella, fried green tomatoes, and cured bacon ($11). While diners' appetizers grow as scarce as sasquatch press conferences, chefs toil over a butcher’s-cut Yountville steak and frites, slathered with gorgonzola butter ($15). Guests can also tuck into the San Francisco Catch red snapper, marinated in a baja tomato broth and served alongside masa cakes and a pepper slaw as surprisingly sweet as a back-talking teen who wants to borrow the family car ($22).
The quaint dining room hosts rich wildflower accents, hardwood floors, and an eye-catching brick fireplace. Through a large bay window, diners can behold views of the canal-side patio, where large flower boxes surround outdoor seating to prevent thieves with pollen allergies from stealing bites off patrons' plates.
At Label 7, fresh ingredients such as crisp shaved fennel and gruyere cheese garnish entrees inspired by the light, healthy cuisine of California's Napa and Sonoma Valleys. Wicker chairs flank tables in the softly lit indoor dining room. Oversized white flowerboxes stand guard along the perimeter of a canal-side patio, where a brigade of umbrellas shields patrons from splashing during nearby diners’ attempts to literally wade through the wine list.
