Hunger, unlike ambulance sirens, meningitis, and restraining orders, is not something you can safely ignore. Answer the mighty call of a bellowing belly with today's Groupon: for $12, you get $25 worth of pizzas, steaks, seafood, and more at Presto Bar and Grill, located in the Second Ward. This deal is not valid for alcohol.
Presto Bar and Grill spurns frozen and canned foods, instead offering the freshest meats, seafood, and vegetables, artfully presented and crafted with personal attention. Presto Grill's menu is headlined by the Angus burger, a sumptuous half-pound of fresh ground chuck that's char-grilled and tucked in a toasted kaiser roll ($7.75). Pizza purveyors use their jeweler's loupes to inspect the blemish-less spinach-cheese pizza, made in-house with mozzarella, feta, and parmesan cheese ($9.95 for 10"). Those in an aquatic state of mind can nosh on the seafood jambalaya, a mixture of shrimp, scallops, and calamari sautéed in a piquant Cajun tomato-cream sauce ($16.95). Finish by indulging in one of Presto's alluring desserts, such as the tuxedo truffle mousse ($6) and its attendant white-and-dark-chocolate icing, which can be quickly applied as an emergency wedding tuxedo. Sit underneath the red umbrellas dotting Presto Bar and Grill's exquisite rooftop patio, which affords scenic views of the Charlotte skyline, or conquer the Internet on the restaurant's WiFi. With free nearby parking, diners can easily rumble in on coal-powered moto-ottomans.
This Groupon is not valid on New Year's Eve.
Reviews are limited, but six Yelpers give Presto Bar and Grill a four-star average rating:
- What makes me a fan is the fully-loaded bar and drink selection. Our waitress made a wonderful recommendation based off of how I was feeling (Libra Love: Crown Royal, Malibu Rum, Pineapple juice, and raspberry something-or-other…can you tell it worked?) – April W.
- Food is great with impeccable presentation. My favorite is the free-range chicken, which has an excellent citrus marinade and is served over spinach and mashed potatoes – janelle w.
