The martini is a life-sustaining liquid that keeps bodies warm, tongues talkative, and hands occupied so that they don't wander off into a posse of porcupines. Reap the benefits of sophisticated beverages and good eats with today’s Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of eclectic international cuisine and drinks at MidCity Cafe.
MidCity Cafe sates hunger pangs and quenches thirsty throats with a menu stuffed with eclectic cuisine, soda and coffee drinks, and creative martinis. Un-pitted french olives adjudicate as slices of toasted pita bread swan dive into the Mediterranean-style hummus plate ($7.25), allowing chefs to focus their cooking goggles on artfully bundling pork, shrimp, and vegetables into crunch-laden fried spring rolls ($4.94). For heartier fare, hands can happily wrap around MidCity’s banh mi ($5.95–$8.95), a Saigon-style sandwich built on a foundation of crispy baguette and layered with pickled daikon, fresh jalapeño, and a choice of meaty or meat-free protein. Fuel liquid lust with a selection from 15 inventive Grey Goose martinis ($9 each), such as the French Toast martini, which whips up a Bond-style breakfast of Amarula fruit cream liqueur, Frangelico, and a dash of self-destructing cinnamon.
Post-feast, rouse fatigued tongue buds with a froth-laced cappuccino ($3 for a small) or an iced espresso ($3.50 for a small) while basking in the golden glow of MidCity’s sleek, cozy interior. Flat-screen TVs placed around the bar bring tidings of the outside world to revelers lost in conversation with beloved sock puppets.
