The first European explorers set sail with hopes of finding new, exotic spices to placate the palates of epicurious monarchs, but all they found were heaps of inedible gold. Pick up where they left off by broadening your mouth's horizons with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of international cuisine and drinks at Little Fountain Cafe, located in the heart of Adams Morgan. This Groupon is not valid in the upstairs bar area and cannot be used toward the prix-fixe menu and Wednesday wine special.
Little Fountain Cafe's chefs sculpt modern, internationally influenced cuisine and change the menu often to include fresh, seasonal ingredients. Starters include fried calamari with spicy marinara sauce and lemon ($6.95), as well as the cheese-plate trio—a symphony of warm, almond-crusted goat cheese with fig preserves, brie with truffle oil, and stilton with honeyed walnuts, all served with grilled bread ($10.95). Mouths maintain momentum with a focused selection of entrees, including pan-seared brook trout, which swims through a shallow pool of lemon white-wine caper sauce in synchrony with orzo pasta and snow peas ($18.95), and mushroom-filled ravioli with parmesan-gruyere cream ($14.95). Reward your tongue for limiting its public imitations of Gene Simmons with desserts such as warm brioche and chocolate-chip bread pudding ($6.95). In addition to elegant edibles, Little Fountain Cafe boasts an intimate, charming dining area ideal for romantic dates and staring contests with optometrists.

Little Fountain Cafe
Located in the up-and-coming Adams Morgan neighborhood, Little Fountain Cafe’s tables swathed in white cloths populate the intimate dining area, with a fountain trickling peacefully in the corner and another outside beside the ivy-cloaked garden table. Waiters traverse the space with eclectic dishes united by a contemporary international aesthetic, ranging from a French-style steak with red wine mushroom sauce and pommes frites to an Italian bucatini with San Marzano tomatoes and pecorino Romano cheese. Groupon Celebrates Pride Month
Over the last 50 years, the gay rights movement in America has overcome tremendous obstacles to become a powerful voice for inclusion and diversity. Even as it has grown, the movement—like Groupon—is local at heart, and we applaud the commitment to real change that improves everyday lives.
At Groupon, we are happy to add our voices to those celebrating PRIDE, their achievements as a social movement and a continued march to equality for the LGBT community. Plus, we love a chance to dig that rainbow wig out of storage.
This month—and throughout the year—we salute our merchants and customers who support PRIDE and all efforts that promote dignity, respect and equal opportunity. We're highlighting these merchants' deals with a special badge to show Groupon's pride in working with people who share our values.
