To function properly, the human body requires a steady stream of nutrients, sunlight, and compliments from other species about its opposable thumbs. Use your bendable digits to provide yourself with nutrients with today’s Groupon: for $10, you get $22 worth of gourmet European fare at Purple Sandpiper in Bloomington.
Purple Sandpiper dishes up a menu of gourmet, locally sourced fare worthy of the OpenTable 2010 Diners' Choice Award. Thirsty patrons can whet tongues with a Minnesota-brewed Crispin Brut dry hard cider ($4.50) or a pint of Rush River Unforgiven amber ale ($5.50) imported from neighboring Wisconsin. Launch your meal quest with a plate of saffron risotto cakes served with tomato chutney and grilled scallions ($7). The duck confit with cassoulet caters to refined poultry palates with white beans cooked with bacon, vegetables, and duck coated in a layer of herb bread crumbs or sink ravenous canines ($19). Young-hearted adults and veggie-savvy young ones can bite into the roasted cauliflower mac 'n' cheese, artisan pasta in a heated existential debate with peppers, spinach, and a trio of cheeses ($15). End your journey toward gastronomic nirvana with a slab of the apple-cinnamon bread pudding submerged under a Titanic-sized glacier of house-made ice cream drizzled in buoyant, gooey caramel ($5).
Serving breakfast, lunch, and dinner, Purple Sandpiper offers patrons a trifecta of edible options to fit any schedule. The eatery's relaxed atmosphere, complete with an open kitchen and friendly staff, is the perfect spot for a casual date night or a much-needed respite from the merciless taunts of your goblin-infested oven.
