What You'll Get
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.
