Pasta is flexible, sometimes saucy, and sticks to the wall when it's done, like Spider-Man performing a gymnastics routine. Settle in for a pasta performance with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of casual Italian fare at Mendini's Restaurant on Main in Thiensville.
At Mendini’s Restaurant on Main, piled-high platters transport steaming plates of pasta primavera, pan-seared salmon, crusty focaccia toast, and frosty drinks from the full bar to patrons' tables. Chefs dress the pan-seared salmon in honey-chipotle breading pajamas before tucking it into a bed of wild rice under a blanket of béarnaise sauce with a bite-size teddy bear for garnish ($15.95). Forks can tango with tender vegetables and twirl graceful linguine noodles on a plate of pasta primavera drenched in white-wine sauce ($10.95), and the crisp romaine lettuce, crunchy croutons, and creamy dressing of the signature caesar salad ($9.95) stirs feelings of jealousy in the unadorned vines climbing the restaurant walls. Patrons can pull up a barstool along the fully stocked bar to sip from Mendini’s wide selection of wines or to show off their good posture by balancing a stack of martini glasses on their heads.
