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 the cinnamon-spiced duck meatballs with tempura squash and goat cheese ($8) or local rutabaga soup with cranberry-cashew pesto ($5). Latent hunter-gatherer instincts alight as forks harpoon the Flint Ridge Farms rabbit with niçoise olives, tomatoes, and fettuccine ($26) and dip bites of locally raised sirloin into sides of creamy polenta ($19). Toast confluent tastes with a libation from chef-selected wine and craft beer lists, and complement meals with a sultry glass of the Jezebel pinot noir ($12) or regal bottle of Bell’s Brewery’s Oberon summer ale ($6).
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.
