Expert restaurateurs know that, contrary to popular belief, crafting an upscale dining experience isn't as easy as expanding the wine list and smearing the wait staff with caviar. Savor atmospheric subtleties with today's Groupon to Our House in Davis. Choose between the following options:
- For $15, you get $30 worth of American fare and drinks at dinner.
- For $10, you get $20 worth of American fare and drinks at lunch.
Our House lays out a welcome mat for dedicated foodies and casual loungers alike with inventive sandwiches, entrees, and handcrafted cocktails. The five-spice chicken salad mingles fowl and flora in a honey-sesame dressing ($9), and caramelized onions, barbecue sauce, and horseradish float atop root-beer-infused pork sliders ($10), reminiscent of a soda-fountain creation without the tooth-unfriendly sugar or youth-corrupting rock 'n' roll jukebox. At dinner, lap up lemon-ricotta gnocchi with optional pancetta ($16) or exercise incisors by tearing into a rib-eye steak drizzled in parsley oil and mashed potatoes ($29). The kitchen whips up homemade marshmallows for an upscale s'more ($6) and meringue to top a lemon mousse with fresh berries ($6).
An art installation made of salvaged wood overlooks spacious four-tops, and dates can snuggle into the Lover's Booth, an intimate table with curtains that can be drawn to give other diners their privacy. Sip a cocktail made with freshly squeezed juices and ingredients gathered from the Davis Farmers' Market at the stylish bar or repair to a pair of cozy leather armchairs and converse over low candle-lit tables.
Chefs infuse steak, seafood, sandwiches, and salads with just-reaped produce at Our House, an eatery praised by Davis Life Magazine for its striking décor of salvaged materials, including farmhouse windows and fencing slats. House-brined pork chops and organic chicken dishes replenish energy caches at rows of glossy, wooden tables that goad each other to walk the artfully lit planks lining the walls. Fresh-squeezed nectars swirl in the Market Muddle, a Wednesday-evening cocktail that spikes produce from Davis Farmers' Market before filling a glass on a wooden bar edged with bark. On Saturdays, live music fills the lounge, where leather chairs and crimson ottomans complement black-and-white masterpieces designed to put colorblind art critics on even ground with rivals.
