With embryonic gills and vestigial tails a distant memory, humankind can't fault fish for being the LeBron Jameses of underwater breath-holding contests. Find a better way to defeat fish with today's Groupon: for $30, you get $60 worth of upscale seafood at Pesca on the River, located on the Riverwalk in the Watermark Hotel & Spa. This deal is only valid toward food purchases.
Pesca's dinner menu provides a plethora of oceanic chow for the sea-centric eater. Starters include a decadent smoked seafood chowder ($8), grilled lobster caesar salad ($25), and the blue crab cake served with Napa cabbage slaw and "dynamite" sauce ($14). Sail ahead toward house specialties, such as blackened shrimp and crimini mushroom pasta with spinach and Manchego cheese ($26); whole rainbow trout stuffed with beef short rib ($31); or signature scallops in coconut, sweet Thai ginger, and chile sauce ($20). Those who prefer the fruit-meats of the farm to the fruits of the sea may opt for a 10-ounce grass-fed beef tenderloin ($35).
Pesca's casually elegant ambience is complemented by the active surroundings of its Riverwalk location. Snuggle into a booth with a lover or imaginary friend and enjoy a meal of understated sophistication. The seafood bar displays fresh oysters, clams, and by-the-piece shrimp and crab, so feel free to peruse for your next aquatic assassination.
