People eat three times a day to prevent mouthy mouths from brashly blurting out their distaste for the rest of the digestive system. Today's Groupon prevents inner-system quarreling by subduing chatty cheeks with local eats: for $20, you get $40 worth of fresh, beautifully presented fare and drinks at Lodge on the Desert on North Alvernon Way.

The eatery, nestled within a posh boutique hotel, serves up a fresh menu of locally sourced fare for breakfast, lunch, and dinner daily in its casual-elegant dining room. A breakfast of huevos rancheros ($8.50) and mesquite buttermilk pancakes ($8) offers suitably Southwestern sustenance for a pair of comically mismatched police detectives, while cubicle-farm escapees looking to linger over lunch will find a haven of upscale hand-held delights—like the shrimp quesadillas with cilantro-lime slaw, roasted peppers, and salsa fresca ($9)—to wash down with a glass of prickly-pear lemonade ($3.50). Dinner diners will peruse a pared-down menu featuring a twice-cooked prime New York strip that has been roasted overnight and grilled alongside a chipotle baked potato ($32), as well as an organic charred salmon served with Boursin risotto, sautéed spinach ($26).

The Lodge's warm and inviting dining space includes a stylized patio, though patrons can choose to dine indoors to avoid the pesky desert winds that abscond with napkins and identities. So spend an evening savoring the fermented flavor of one of the eatery's wines, or indulging in a decadent slice of the ancho-chocolate torte topped with Chantilly-laced whipped cream and a rich raspberry coulis ($7).

Excellent food and service
Jack J. · July 8, 2013
Very impressed with the food and the service!
Darsha D. · July 4, 2013
I think the wine list could use a little work but there are 8 or so wines by the glass. All and all a really good experience.
