Sababa Restaurant and Lounge - Marina Pacifica: $25 for $50 Worth of Upscale American-Mediterranean Fusion Fare and Drinks at Sababa Restaurant and Lounge in Long Beach

International eating isn't a dangerous adventure through customs, where the customs officer asks you to open your bag and you refuse, which prompts him to teach you about manners by reading select Goofus and Gallant comic strips. Dine in a more diplomatic fashion with today’s Groupon to Sababa Restaurant and Lounge in Long Beach. Amidst Sababa's warm, contemporary dining areas and lounges, consulting chef Eric Greenspan serves a variety of upscale American fare with Mediterranean accents for adventure-seeking appetites. Kick back in the upstairs mezzanine, sprawl in the lavish lounge, or suavely sip cocktails on the outdoor patio before sharing main or small plates from the menu (main plates start at $12) with a stylish significant other or an entire table of famished Minotaurs.

Sababa Restaurant and Lounge

When Sagi Rochman was drawing up the plans for his new restaurant, he knew he wanted it to be cool. So he named it Sababa, which is Hebrew for "cool"—a designation the chic lounge has easily lived up to. The space brims with plush curtains, modern art, and sleek couches, where groups sit as they sip on craft beers or one of Sababa's award-winning specialty martinis. The spa martini is particularly refreshing, a blend of cucumbers and freshly muddled strawberries that cools patrons as they sit on the outdoor patio under the rays of the Earth's only remaining sun. "The" Margarita is also popular with guests, an unorthodox mixture of tequila, Grand Marnier, freshly pureed passion fruit, and pineapple juice, which one regular swears is the best margarita outside of Mexico.

The cocktail list gets some stiff competition from the food menu. To build up the gustatory roster, Rochman enlisted the talents of celebrity chef Eric Greenspan, a contestant on Food Network programs such as The Next Iron Chef. Inspired by Rochman's heritage, Greenspan constructed a fusion of Mediterranean and Israeli flavors, resulting in dishes such as goat-cheese pizzas and seared ahi tuna with harissa mashed potatoes. There are plenty of small plates as well, including grilled eggplant with tahini and chicken kabobs with an olive-date sauce. As if the inspired tapas and lauded cocktails weren't enough, the lounge regales diners with a slew of events held throughout the week, including wine flights on Tuesdays and dance parties with live DJs on Fridays and Saturdays.

Great food and beer selection.

We're so pleased that having the Groupon got us to try a place new to us. We had put it off because it was quite out of the way, but last night were in the neighborhood. The Mediterranean cuisine is very good, the atmosphere is wonderful. Beautiful circular bar in the main room. The best surprise was live music on a Thursday night - blues musician Ray Goren and a kicky backup band. Will definitely go back.
