Like Houdini’s ghost or a bear covered in bees, hunger can be unpredictable, and almost always shows up just before dinner parties. Calm hunger pangs with today’s Groupon to Rafiki Bistro in Cambridge. Choose between the following options:

• For $10, you get $20 worth of contemporary American fare during brunch on Saturday or Sunday.
• For $15, you get $30 worth of contemporary American fare during dinner.

The team of chefs at Rafiki Bistro, which means “friend” in Swahili, handcraft contemporary American meals using the freshest local ingredients whenever possible. The weekend brunch menu plays host to the wild mushroom skillet, a potpourri mix of free-range eggs, wild mushrooms, scallions, and organic cheddar ($11). Take a gustatory tour through the legendary syrup mines of Vermont with the all-natural whole-wheat pancakes slathered in warm organic Vermont maple syrup ($8).

Supper-smiths rev appetites with the dinner menu’s signature starter of warmed Great Hill blue cheese, which plates together dried figs, Cape Cod cranberries, and dried bing cherries flecked with organic honey and toasted pumpkin seeds harvested from sunburned jack-o-lanterns ($9). Ensnare fresh wild Pacific king salmon ($21), or sink chompers into the maple turkey burger, a turkey patty char-grilled with cheddar cheese, arugula, and a light maple syrup glaze ($12).

Rafiki Bistro’s long wooden bar, soft lighting, and rustic brick wall backdrop lend an earthy, casual atmosphere where noshers can sip on organic, fair-trade coffee while surfing the web on complimentary WiFi grown from organic, fair-trade router seeds.

The hostess, Nikki, and the bartender, David (I think?), who was also our server since we were sitting at the bar, were both great!
