Though it is possible to smuggle a scalding pot of fondue into a movie theater or discreetly pass a judge a candied ham, tapas remain nature's most portable food. Enjoy a moveable feast with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of tapas, seasonal fare, and drinks at The Rx Cafe in St. Charles.
The gleaming wooden tables of The Rx Cafe groan beneath hearty spreads of wholesome tapas, salads, soups, and sandwiches, all made from seasonal produce and additive-free ingredients. Peruse the expansive seasonally changing menu before beginning with mushroom quesadillas ($8.95) or tapas ($5 each), including selections such as the Spanish-olive-oil-cloaked tuna nicoise. The Rx Cafe's cuban sandwich ($8.95) huddles a flavorful armory of braised pork, Black Forest ham, swiss cheese, dijon mustard, and dill pickles, and the cider-soaked barbecue-pork sandwich ($8.95) rounds up cheddar, caramelized onions, and fresh apple slaw. Trek through the sweeping verdancy of salads, such as a Maryland crab and avocado concoction ($12.95), or relish a dulcet array of desserts, rotating as sweetly as Paula Deen trapped on a carousel to offer up fresh sweet-tooth fodder daily.
