When deprived of flavorful sustenance, the mouth will often retaliate by shouting your bank-account number at sporting events or turning every sentence into a high-pitched jingle. Tame an unruly tongue with today’s Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of Mexican-American fusion cuisine at Nuevo Southwest Grill.
The culinary team at Nuevo Southwest Grill concocts a menu of Mexican-American fusion cuisine that spurs taste buds onward through a land of tortilla vistas dotted with grilled veggies. Prepare palates for future forkfuls with the flavorsome crab-and-fish-cake appetizer, garnished with a fiery jalapeño tartar ($7.95). The sazonado grilled chicken breast arrives glazed with a zesty chipotle orange sauce and topped with goat cheese and mushrooms ($13.95). Lunchtime victuals, such as the burrito stuffed with salmon ($8.25), quells stomachs before they bellow like Luciano Pavarotti after stubbing his big toe. Served until 2 p.m. on weekends, Nuevo’s brunch engages freshly woken bellies with buttermilk pancakes topped with fresh fruit ($6.95).
Instead of spiking your plate into the ground and chest-bumping the waiter, celebrate a successful meal with a slice of flan covered in vanilla caramel sauce ($5.95), then move your limbs to the tune of live music that pulsates through the air on Friday nights.
