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 inner-system quarreling by subduing chatty cheeks with upscale pub grub: for $10, you get $20 worth of gourmet American bar fare and drinks at Nob Hill Bar & Grill on Central Avenue SE.
Nob Hill Bar & Grill serves seasonal, upscale American bar fare in a laid-back dining room filled with brick accents and modern, stylish décor or on an inviting outdoor patio. Prep your stomach with beer-steamed clams tossed with fennel, bacon lardoons, tomatoes, and crushed red-chili flakes ($10), before treating it to larger dishes such as the flat-iron steak frites with a sidekick of steak fries ($17) and miso-glazed salmon, swimming among shitake mushrooms in a river of basmati sweet pea rice ($18). Veggievores can feast on the Nob Hill edamame and mushroom veggie burger, crowned with ginger and lime mayo along with a courtly crowd of caramelized onions, avocado, sprouts, and veggies ($9), while sipping on one of many inventive drinks. For dessert, diffuse the Guinness waffle car bomb, a sweet explosion of house-made Guinness ice cream on belgium waffles with Jameson-whiskey caramel and Bailey's sweet cream ($6).
