What You'll Get
Like attaching a fake mustache to a Halloween mask or cleverly changing your name from Obi-Wan Kenobi to Ben Kenobi, adding a new ingredient to something familiar can render it delightfully unrecognizable. Enjoy inventive eats with today's Groupon : for $12, you get $25 worth of contemporary fare and drinks at Red Velvet Restaurant & Lounge in Palos Hills.
Red Velvet Restaurant & Lounge, a hub for delicious contemporary fare and swanky nighttime revelry, serves elegantly crafted, savory plates and a coterie of cocktails inside a red and black setting. Expert chef Michael Witkus's small plates, such as the sushi-grade ahi tuna tartare ($12) and Barcelona-style bruschetta, accented by garlic aioli, peppers, and Spanish chorizo ($5), create a smorgasbord of gustatory intrigue for the table. Break in new bibs with Red Velvet's larger plates, such as the butter-poached shrimp and scallops ($15) and the Brazilian filet-mignon skewers, escorted down tongue carpets by poblano chimmichuri sauce and Andouille-sausage-studded potato hash ($12).
An all-star roster of wines, specialty drinks, and 14 martinis infuse meals with added bliss. Like a Type-A mama bird, Red Velvet ensures those within its nest are nourished and entertained at almost any hour by hosting live bands every Friday, transforming into a nightclub on Saturdays after 10 p.m. and keeping its kitchen open until 11 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays.
