Dining out with friends can foster healthy relationships that might otherwise be limited to impersonal group texts or overly personal bath-time visits. Get a bite in person with a person with today's Groupon: for $12, you get $25 worth of upscale southern fare for dinner at Roux.
Roux's creative chefs tantalize palates with a menu of reenvisioned regional cuisine. Like an android replica of William Faulkner, the bill of fare tastefully revamps beloved southern classics, satisfying appetites with appetizers of crispy fried oysters and okra ($10) or entrees of BBQ smoked chicken with braised collard greens and coca-cola BBQ sauce ($17). Summer hearts of romaine salads feature focaccia croutons, crispy capers, and parmesan dressing ($7.50). Guests can cap off feasts with dulcet desserts, such as warm peach cobbler ($6), which gets a velvety karate chop from milk and honey ice cream.
Nestled in historic Cloverdale Village, Roux exudes an air of old-timey charm with patio-side seating and a glass-paneled façade. It also features daily specials and weekly musical performances from local artists. Inside, pillowy booths cushion diners, and natural wood accents, turn-of-the-century photographs, and a licensed phrenologist connect visitors with times gone by.
