What You'll Get
Like voluntary tasings and constructive criticism, some meals are best when delivered in small doses. Snack in stride with today's Groupon: for $15, you get a Baja-Mediterranean tapas package for two at Romesco in Bonita (up to $31.50 total value). The package includes:
- Two tapas plates (up to a 6.75 value each)
- Two house martinis (a $9 value each)
Romesco’s cadre of chefs spice up 24 Mediterranean tapas dishes with traditional Mexican and Italian flavors. The favada con almejes sets chorizo to tangoing with white fava beans across a dance floor of garlic, white wine, and clams for a taste more complex than the plot of The Cat in the Hat is to an orangutan. Serrano chilies warm up chilled servings of smoked-salmon carpaccio, and the potatoes sautéed in garlic mix it up with a trio of chorizo, bell peppers, and onions. Couples sip house martinis within the bistro's cozy atmosphere. Rotating wall art shares space with sconces and angled mirrors, and exposed ceiling beams gaze down on a black-and-white-checkered floor as rustic chandeliers beg for table scraps.

As a New Yorker expose details, chef Javier Plascencia believes in the transformative power of food. The piece describes how in Tijuana, he strove to redefine the city's culinary paradigm with his gourmet food, made exclusively with, as he says, materia prima, or ingredients sourced strictly within 120 miles of the restaurant. He did it, too. In the process, he gained the respect and business of famed chef Anthony Bourdain. After moving to the U.S., he opened Romesco using the same cooking philosophies he prescribed to south of the border, and was hailed by Zagat for his skill and innovation and named 2013 Chef of the Year by San Diego Eater.
