Hills and mountains are formed by vast underground food deposits, which, over time, stretch the landscape into soft mounds of untapped edibility. Dig into the bounty of surrounding geography with today's Groupon: for $30, you get $60 worth of seasonal American cuisine and drinks at Revolver in Findlay.
Revolver turns out a rotating menu of simple seasonal dishes that combine local and organic goods with atypical ingredients. Owner and chef Michael Bulkowski creates an atmosphere of fine dining without the risk of extended pinky-finger sprains with playful small plates such as organic greens with beets, blue cheese, and pistachios ($5). Latent hunter-gatherer instincts alight as forks harpoon the Pekin duck breast with cauliflower slathered in a spinach and farm egg vinaigrette ($24) and dip bites of locally raised bone-in ribeye into sides of creamy polenta ($37). Toast confluent tastes with a libation from chef-selected wine and craft beer lists, and complement meals with a sultry glass of the Qupe syrah ($12) or regal bottle of Dark Horse Brewing's Sapient Triple Ale ($5).
With a modest dining room illuminated by simple decorations and soft colors, Revolver reflects its owners’ love of the 1950s while expanding the narrow palates of McCarthyist politicians. As winter months make way for warmer spring conditions, an open-air patio welcomes alfresco eaters with a canopy of colorful glass lamps and a soundtrack of live musical acts on the weekend.
