Europe's influence on American culture is still evident today, as Churchill is the most popular baby name for both boys and girls. Enjoy edible Old-World pastimes with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of European and American cuisine and drinks at Remix Cafe in Old Irving Park.
Remix Cafe's culinary design team engineers edible opuses of European-influenced paninis, wraps, crepes, and American staples. An appetizer of fried shrimp settles down cantankerous stomachs, freeing up minds to hone in on an appetite-sating entrée ($6.95). The 10-ounce sirloin glides across the palate with a port wine sauce ($14.95), and the tilapia decorates dental areas with an under-the-sea theme ($10.95). Name each finger after one of the five signature crepes, such as the ham-and-cheese variety ($7.25), or opt for a dense chicken-ranch panini ($7.50) or spicy-chicken wrap ($8.95).
Remix Cafe sits in an elegant 1920s building and boasts a cavernous dining area with 13-foot molded ceilings, mosaic-tile trim, and copper mirrors that endow walls with the reflective capabilities of a still pond or a oil-covered trophy. While sipping a cappuccino or noshing on dinner fare, guests can finger-surf the web on Remix Cafe's complimentary WiFi network or admire the plants that frame the bar area.
