The ocean has long been a stage for humanity's grandest achievements, from Magellan’s circumnavigation of the globe to Columbus’s discovery that lobsters look like tiny monsters. Set sail for seafood with today’s Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of authentic Peruvian fare at The Lemon Tree Restaurant, valid at the Whittington Drive location.
The Lemon Tree's menu boasts multiple variations of ceviche and seafood to build an impressive selection of Peruvian cuisine. The ceviche de pescado pairs fish with onions and lemon juice ($13), and the ceviche mixto includes fish, shrimp, mussels, and calamari, served with a side of corn and sweet potato ($13.50). Pulpo a lo cayo delivers marinated octopus to tongues ($14), and the papa a la huancaina— boiled potatoes in a cheesy, creamy sauce flanked by fresh peppers—acts as hearty meatless human fuel ($9). The restaurant’s cozy, homey interior makes it an ideal spot to dine with old friends or to charmingly administer a prescreening polygraph during first dates.
