Steak is the breakfast of champions, the lunch of kings, the dinner of industrial barons, and the dessert of T. rexes. Enjoy high-quality cuts regardless of social or philosophical status with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of Colombian cuisine and drinks at Las Tablas Colombian Steakhouse's two locations on North Lincoln Avenue or West Irving Park Road.
Las Tablas' rough-hewn tables groan beneath the menu's aromatic bounty of steaks and seafood. The empanada combination plate, featuring corn-flour turnovers stuffed with beef, chicken, and cheese ($7.50), lets diners soar into new culinary terrain as smoothly as a hang-gliding Julia Child. The chefs' charbroiled crown jewel, entraña skirt steak ($19), arrives borne on the shoulders of a rambunctious entourage of fried plantains and yucca. Dry Neptune's jealous tears with a romp through delicately grilled shrimp ($20) resplendent in gossamer cloaks of white wine and garlic. Vibrant artwork by Colombian painter Fernando Botero and a convivial ambiance provide international exhilaration without angering the It's A Small World ride operators.
