Adding gourmet ingredients to a meal makes a commonplace activity feel special, much like brushing your teeth with a sparkler or withdrawing money from an ATM while holding it at gunpoint. Enhance your culinary experience with today's Groupon: for $12, you get $25 worth of gourmet fare at Paradise Grille, located in Del Mar.
Named Best of Del Mar in 2009 and 2010 by the U.S. Commerce Association and winner of the Wine Spectator Award of Excellence, Paradise Grille has created an eclectic menu of gourmet fare alongside an expansive drink menu and opulent décor. Tastebuds making equatorial expeditions can take an explosive opening with the firecracker shrimp starter, drizzled in peppery kung-pao sauce and crowned with peanuts, cilantro, and an assemblage of daikon-carrot salad ($13). Much like a monocle-donning Yosemite Sam, comfort fare is given an upscale edge with 15-hour braised angus short ribs, served with whipped Yukon Gold potatoes, cipollini, English peas, cherry tomato, and a red wine demi-glace ($27). High-class hunger sating comes in a handheld variety as well, with a number of succulent burgers and brick-oven pizzas, including the white truffle pizza, scattered with roasted mushroom, creamy ricotta, shaved black truffle, verdant arugula, and white-truffle oil ($16).
Elegant evening-seekers can dine among emerald booths and bright tropical flowers, and casual cocktail-sippers can relax with the wicker seating and flat-screen TVs at the conversational bar and lounge. The handsome fountain and eye-catching fire pit afford first-rate outdoor dining for dates, friendly dinners, and Yahtzee night for gods of the underworld. An innovative and enchanting list of specialty cocktails ($10), martinis ($10), and liqueur-laden coffee drinks ($9) ensure consummate complementing of menu items or decadent evenings of drinks with friends. Paradise Grille also features gourmet desserts, a new wine menu, and a robust weekend brunch.
