Hills and mountains are formed by vast underground food deposits, which, over time, stretch the landscape into soft mounds of untapped edibility. Dig into the bounty of British Columbia with today’s Groupon: for $20, you get $40 worth of simple, elegant dishes and drinks at Mosaic Bar & Grille, located inside the Hyatt Regency Vancouver. This Groupon is not valid toward breakfast or weekday lunch (served Monday through Friday from 11:30 a.m.–2 p.m.).
Mosaic Bar & Grille's dinner menu presents a pleasing patchwork of style and simplicity, with its seafood dishes endorsed by Ocean Wise, the sustainable-seafood program operated by the Vancouver Aquarium. Small plates include mussels and clams ($13), roasted-chicken tortilla soup ($10), and a Dungeness crab cake ($15), with the menu drawing from Vancouver's valleys of dressing-dotted greens to offer Caesar ($10) and arugula ($9) salads. Large plates exhibit the intricacies of buttermilk fried chicken with potato puree and garden salad ($26), grilled wild salmon with paella-style risotto and chorizo sausage ($31), and tender potato gnocchi with roasted squash and feta ($21).
Mosaic Bar & Grille is located on the second storey of the hotel, giving diners a view of the city usually afforded only to gargoyles and web-shooting superheroes. As you feast on the fare, overseen by award-winning chefs, enjoy the sight of street life and the mighty ocean, majestically resting in the distance like a mirror full of sharks.
