What You'll Get
One of Benjamin Franklin’s last theories was that taking in a good view while eating aids both in digestion and in the ability to squeeze milk out of coal. Prove him half-right with today's Groupon: for $25, you get $50 worth of bistro fare and drinks at Patril Bistro & Catering on Balboa Boulevard.
Beckoning to diners with a casual elegance, Patril Bistro & Catering serves up a rotating menu of made-from-scratch fare. The bestselling braised short ribs dazzle diners with braised beef, garlic mashed potatoes, fresh veggies, and a drizzling of shiitake-mushroom glaze ($23). Mouth must-haves include the shrimp scampi ($18) and the Bianca pizza, a thin-crust creation drizzled in olive oil and topped with mozzarella, sautéed mushrooms, caramelized onions, sliced prosciutto, and arugula ($20 for a 13-inch). Or heat up chilly tooth caves with the warm spinach salad, a mix of sautéed mushrooms, sun-dried tomatoes, applewood smoked bacon, and delightfully crumbled goat cheese, finished with a splash of balsamic vinaigrette ($14).
Patril’s outdoor patio can be enjoyed with any BYOB selection, excluding boxers, birds, and Bobby Brown. The weekly wine list is an international summit of top vintages from the far-off lands of Australia, Italy, Spain, and South America, as well as homegrown options from California.
Eighteen Yelpers give Patril Bistro & Catering an average of four stars:
