Tapas, like books, cars, and husbands, are designed to be shared with those closest to you. Indulge in the best of Spanish-style sharing with today’s Groupon: for $20, you get $40 worth of contemporary American fare at Samuel's, located at the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame.
Samuel's seats revelers in cushy digs, where they peruse a menu loaded with flavorful tapas and entrees crafted by Executive Chef Sutat Anthachai. Perfect for couples and comically incongruous partners from the police force, small-plated tapas encourage curious tasters to sample an array of hot and cold dishes, from the classic french steamed mussels ($9) to the modern ahi sliders ($7), accompanied by napa slaw and a kick of Sriracha aioli. The chef's signature small plate, spicy lobster toast, features lobster claw, avocado wasabi, and gorgonzola atop a grilled crostini ($11), and the lamb osso bucco entree arrives with nutritious sidekicks of mashed potatoes and asparagus ($17). An upscale team of lobster, gruyere sauce, and hickory-smoked bacon helps make-over mac and cheese tapa ($9), teaching it to grace plates with witty banter and coordinate its socks with its necktie.
