People eat three times a day to prevent mouthy mouths from brashly blurting out their distaste for the rest of the digestive system. Today's Groupon prevents intra-system quarreling by subduing chatty cheeks with gourmet Southern cuisine at Mint, located in Ridgeland. Choose between two options:
- For $10, you get $20 worth of lunch and drinks.
- For $20, you get $50 worth of dinner and drinks.
To prepare gourmet versions of Southern classics, Mint relies on fresh local ingredients for its seasonal offerings. The lunch and dinner menus are full of creative culinary interpretations of traditional comfort food, artfully arranged to please the palate and the eyes. Whet your appetite with the sautéed and fried crab claws (served with house-made comeback sauce, $11.95) or an order of the duck nachos ($11.95), topped with gouda cheese, mint pico de gallo, and blackberry syrup. Afternoon noshers can feast on the house-made fettuccine pasta with Gulf shrimp ($14.95) or find comfort in the arms of a fried pork tenderloin sandwich ($10.95). Sample the sweet-salty alliance of the mint julep chicken and waffles ($12.95 for lunch; $16.95 for dinner), reminiscent of the olden days when bartenders still mixed chickens in highball glasses by hand. For the poultry averse, the truffled lobster mac ‘n cheese ($21.95), rack of lamb ($42.95), and shrimp and grits ($21.95) all do their best to fill the bellies of dinner diners with the cozy tenderness of a hug from within.
After dinner, indulge your sweet-tooth tendencies with Nanny’s pecan pie served with vanilla ice cream ($7.95) or Mint’s homemade Creole cream cheese cheesecake ($7.95) topped with raspberry sauce. Or, relax in the upscale bar with Mint’s wide selection of Mint juleps. Mint’s elegant dining room, filled with stylish furniture, warm hues, atmospheric lighting and white linen-covered tables, creates a chic environment to partake in classy comfort fare.
