Putting a man on the moon was briefly considered mankind's greatest achievement, until Neil Armstrong invented sliced bread. Savor civilization's finest creation with today's Groupon: for $8, you get $16 worth of sandwiches, salads, and drinks at Panini's Restaurant.
The chefs at Panini's Restaurant melt Italian-style sandwiches between slices of signature focaccia bread and fill out a robust menu with fresh salads and non-pressed eats. Veggie lovers sink incisors into the crispy mozzarella and tomato panini ($6.89) to mine deposits of baby spinach and pesto mayonnaise hidden inside. The hot Italian panini ($6.89) stacks ham, salami, roasted red peppers, and provolone into an edible imitation of the Devils Tower's sedimentary layers. Russian dressing, Swiss cheese, American turkey, and a French baguette form the United Nations sandwich's flavorful security council ($6.49). Breadbound meals slide to the table with a side of chips or pasta salad and a pickle.
Panini's cozy wooden bar refreshes patrons with an assortment of beer ($3.75/bottle) and wine to help unwind after work or after completing a 5K race in moon shoes. Diners can sit in one of the space's 75 seats to admire the hardwood floors and sleek marble-topped counter area.
