Cooking at home involves the risk of small burns, spilled liquids, and the advances of an oven in heat. Avoid stove-top suitors with today's Groupon to Levant Grille in Englewood. Choose between the following options:
- For $20, you get $40 worth of Mediterranean fare at dinner.
- For $10, you get $20 worth of Mediterranean fare at lunch.
The chefs at Levant Grille fire up a Mediterranean menu of dishes marinated in Middle Eastern spices and designed to be enjoyed as a group. Hot and cold appetizers welcome shared snacking on smoked eggplant in the babaganoush ($7.95), the rice-stuffed grape leaves ($6.95), or the minced-lamb kofte meatballs ($8.95). The Joeje kebab skewers tender chicken breast marinated in Persian spices onto a chorus line of chopped morsels, alternating between tomato, pepper, and onion that high kick over open flames and inspire diners to greet them with a shower of roses ($17.95). A charcoal flame kisses lamb chops on both cheeks and arranges a marriage with bulgur pilaf for the pirzola entree ($22.95), and food artists brush salmon with olive oil, sprinkling fresh herbs over fillets and adding ambiance with a cheerful vegetable medley ($19.95). Cooks dial ovens to lunch daily from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., arranging shoestring potato fries alongside crispy falafel sandwiches doused with tabouli ($9.95) and Mediterranean burgers buried beneath layers of crumbled feta cheese, caramelized onions, and yogurt sauce ($10.95).
Dark shades of beige and brown create a refined atmosphere in the dining room, where white flowers rest on each table and a pair of leafless trees rest in a state of permanent winter or alopecia.
