Like attaching a fake mustache to a Halloween mask or cleverly changing your name from Obi-Wan Kenobi to Ben Kenobi, adding a new ingredient to something familiar can render it delightfully unrecognizable. Enjoy inventive eats with today's Groupon: for $20, you get $40 worth of contemporary American fare at Rialto Cafe.
Rialto Cafe houses a smorgasbord of contemporary American breakfast, lunch, and dinner bites depicted on its myriad menus, many of which are mottled with gluten-free and vegetarian options. Evening eats include a bacon-swathed slab of buffalo meatloaf simmering in gravy beside a cherubim-crafted cloud of mashed potatoes, corn, and red peppers ($14.99). Heaps of celery, carrots, peas, and potatoes swim in a sage-cream sauce cocooned by the chicken pot pie's flaky puff pastry ($14.99), and the blackened-salmon salad ($13.99) corrals a herd of assorted greens and feta into baron bellies.
Scarlet tables freckle two levels of multihued decorations ornamenting the electric-green walls, and patio dining, like skydiving with a mouthful of hamburger, allows visitors to nibble on dinner while enjoying fresh, high-altitude air.
Named for the Rialto Theater, a “picture theater” that once occupied the storefront next door, Rialto Cafe harkens back to the glamorous refinement of pre-multiplex Hollywood. Visitors can complement their approachable meals with sips of classic cocktails and wine culled from an expansive menu, or navigate dietary restrictions with plentiful vegetarian and gluten-free dishes. The eatery greets the morning with breakfasts of omelets and French Toast, and stays open for lunch, dinner, and the late-night dining traditional among people who think restaurant tables are small, hard beds.
