Now that spinach has been deemed a performance-enhancing vegetable, Popeye's future shortstop career hinges on his transition to fresh arugula. Get a sailor's worth of energizing eats with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of bistro fare and drinks at Martini's Bistro in Longmont.
Martini's Bistro offers innovative recipes, an extensive drink menu, and a relaxing respite from steamy home kitchens inside a charming 1890s Victorian house. The menu divides dishes between light fare and hearty meals to effectively quell modest munchies and colossal cravings alike. The Here's Dino assembles beef-shoulder tenderloin medallions alongside baby greens, roasted tomatoes, gorgonzola, and a roasted tomato aioli ($13), and the Nutty Chick crusts a baked chicken breast with macadamia and adorns it with a raspberry coulis ($15). To inaugurate ambrosial meals, the Pompeii prepares scallops identically to the conditions in which streets were left by the eponymous volcano—swathed in bacon and drenched in sweet chili lava ($9). Inventive martinis pair perfectly with the phenomenal flavors, and olive aficionados can order a single spirit or a pitcher of creative concoctions such as the berri fizz (with Absolut berri acai, lemon lime soda, and cranberry), which caters to entire casts of James Bond stunt doubles ($27). An array of wine plus domestic, imported, and microbrewed beer pleases parched palates as well.
