Hunger, unlike ambulance sirens, meningitis, and restraining orders, is not something you can safely ignore. Answer the mighty call of a bellowing belly with today's Groupon: for $25, you get $50 worth of new American cuisine at Loft 610. This Groupon cannot be used toward alcohol, and it is not valid for happy hour. Reservations are required; call ahead to make yours.
The doors to Loft 610 swung open for the first time this past May, inviting curious guests to explore an interior of dimly lit urban panache and a menu of inventive American favorites. The focused lunch list is elegant yet unpretentious, like a queen on a unicycle. Commence to feed with refreshing starters such as the watermelon-and-feta salad with mint and lemon ($8). The brie-and-grape baguette sandwich with rosemary mayo offers PB&J purists a baby step to sophistication ($9), while finely crafted entrees such as penne with salmon, fresh peas, white wine cream sauce, and fresh parsley appease tongues that naturally grip in the shape of a cylinder ($13). The dinner marquee swaps hickory barbecue bites ($10–$15) for appetizers such as grilled squid with arugula, chorizo, and slow-baked cherry tomatoes ($8) and entrees fit for full-fledged foodies such as the pistachio-crusted rack of lamb, served with barley risotto, spinach, tomatoes, pecorino, and salsa verde ($36).
In between forkfuls, reserve your jaw for dropping as you express emphatic _ahh_s in the many directions of Loft 610's spacious space, which is filled with warm lighting, wood-paneled walls, and gleaming floors. Get some fresh air on the outdoor patio when the weather cooperates, or take in the actual loft space that gives the restaurant its moniker. The modern restaurant also features an open kitchen, so customers can watch as their meals take their final shapes, paying homage to the mighty food pyramid, square meal, and rhombus rutabaga along the way.
