Though coveting thy neighbor's wife or underground sprinkler system is beyond the pale, longing for a mouthful of their cuisine is an understandable desire. Today's Groupon satisfies desires to eat from the table of our nation's neighbor: for $20, you get $40 worth of authentic Mexican cuisine at Piramide, located on Fifth Avenue in Park Slope.
Piramide's geometrically solid menu contains enough structurally sound culinary beams to support a small food truck. Release the dinner hounds with an order of queso fundido (three cheeses melted with chorizo, onions, peppers, and a splash of tequila, and served with tortillas, $9.95). Meat-focused palates can move on to Geraldine's famous carne asada, a NY strip steak marinated in secrets and served with mysteriously delectable tortillas, rice, beans, sour cream, pico de gallo, and lime ($16.95), while vegetarians can achieve a satisfied bite via the enchiladas de vegetales, which are stuffed with the vegetable of the day and served with a meatless green-tomatillo sauce ($9.95). The meal also features a strong supporting cast of seafoods, salads, pastas, and desserts.
Piramide's festive, wood-enhanced interior puts stomachs at ease for the filling and stretching that awaits. The atmosphere receives a boost from elegant wall-sconce lighting, tile floors, a full wood-and-glass façade, and tile-mosaic accents along the wooden bar. While feasting your eyes on the warm surroundings, allow the eye in your belly button to intake the warm eats materializing inside the restaurant's kitchen.
