Before food was invented, all energy came from the sun, forcing humans to rely on photosynthesis harnessed by wearing the fur of chia pets. Celebrate solid sustenance with today's Groupon: for $20, you get $40 worth of gourmet American fare and drinks at redwhite+bluezz in Pasadena.
Chefs at redwhite+bluezz sling exceptionally tasty salads, soups, entrees, and desserts forged from creative ingredients and accented with upscale libations. The luxurious menu unleashes contemporary influences upon classic recipes, such as a starter of fondue kicked into the 21st century by a squad of lobster, spinach, artichoke hearts, fontina, and sliced baguette ($14). Main courses flank the all-American meatiness of a buffalo rib eye with pommes lyonnaise, burrata and tomato gratin ($32) and hide vegetarian surprises such as pumpkin gnocchi served with roasted spaghetti squash and a pool of pistachio buerre noisette ($21). Quell sweet teeth clamoring for attention with unshareable desserts such as the vineyard-inspired cookie-mousse Eton Mess ($7).
The cup of redwhite+bluezz also runneth over with an arsenal of wines—40 varieties alone pourable by the glass. In-house sommelier Russ Meek developed cheese and charcuterie flights pairing fresh brie, gouda, and more with complementary whites and reds ($15–$21). Diners can also devise their own flight with a learning-by-doing approach that parallels edible macaroni art projects.
