People eat three times a day to prevent mouthy mouths from brashly blurting out their distaste for the rest of the digestive system. Today's Groupon prevents inner-system quarreling by subduing chatty cheeks with tasty eats: for $20, you get $40 worth of upscale American eats at Portabellos. This Groupon includes free dessert if you dine Sunday through Thursday.

A casual café, Portabellos serves classy American fare for brunch, lunch, and dinner. Brunch combines traditional egg dishes with sandwiches, pastas, and a.m.-appropriate cocktails for a smorgasbord as crowd-pleasing as Burton Gilliam doing the moonwalk. For dinner, the legendary fresh lump crab cake comes sandwiched on a whole-wheat bun ($14) or plated with coleslaw, french fries, and tarragon remoulade ($21), depending on your preferred mastication method. If you're leaning toward breakfast, belly up to smoked-salmon hash with poached eggs ($10), if you're leaning toward lunch, try the orecchiette with fennel sausage, broccoli rabe, and roasted peppers ($14), if you're leaning toward Friday happy hour, a $4 mimosa should do the trick, and, if you're leaning toward a precipice, you should step back a bit. Portabellos provides attentive service and a laid-back atmosphere to accompany its elegant dishes. Exposed brick walls painted a buttery yellow, honey wood-grain tables and chairs and natural light streaming through arched windows create a warm and cozy feeling akin to floating on an inflatable giraffe in a pool of egg yolk.

Reservations are required.

Reviews

Portabellos was featured in the Washingtonian and was reviewed by Gayot. City Paper reviewers give it an average of four sporks, and Yelpers give it a three-star average:

  • It has also obviously struck a harmonious note, for this has become a neighborhood hotspot – Gayot
  • The jumbo crabcakes, made with first-rate crabmeat, were baked with a light crust and served with jícama slaw and Old Bay remoulade flecked with corn kernels. – David Dorsen, Washingtonian
