Taste buds can easily turn into viciously passive-aggressive taste frenemies without proper attention. Keep your tongue from gossiping behind your back with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of new American dinner cuisine and drinks at Louisa's Café and Bakery in Eastlake. This Groupon is valid Monday–Saturday for dinner only (5 p.m.–10 p.m.).
Louisa's combines creative American cuisine with a cozy artisan atmosphere. This fall’s dinner menu whets and whittles appetites into the shape of garden gnomes with a starter of pan-fried rosemary butternut squash ($6) or a buttery bowl of curry and sea-salt popcorn ($6). Tickle the tongue’s ultra-sensitive taste buds further by matchmaking a glass of Los Vascos sauvignon blanc ($7) from the wine list with Louisa’s chicken pot-pie, made with all-natural, locally raised chicken simmered in a white-wine stew and topped with chef Sara’s baked-to-order pastry ($14). Otherwise, feed the kid inside you—with whom you sometimes have internal debates over who is the best 16th-century poet—by snagging a bowl of baked mac 'n' cheese ($12).
Louisa’s ample portions, accessible wine list, and rustic coffeehouse vibe make it an apropos venue for ending hunger strikes, loudly banging bongo drums, and engaging in flirtatious arm-wrestles with potential paramours. Louisa's sumptuous seasonal dinner menu ensures that diners leave with mouths grinning and belly buttons winking.
