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.
