A world without consonants would disrupt daily activities such as consuming giant troughs of alphabet-shaped cereal and betting against grandma during Wheel of Fortune. Embrace consonants in their most delicious form with today's Groupon for half off Eastern European fare at Saro Bistro on the Lower East Side. Choose from two options:

  • For $15, you get $30 toward dinner.
  • For $10, you get $20 toward brunch.

Celebrating the culinary lore of the Austro-Hungarian and Ottoman Empires, Saro emanates Eastern European warmth from both its menu and intimately styled dining space. Chef and owner Eran Elhalal crafts inventive comfort foods that echo shades of Balkan bacchanalias for dinner and brunch affairs. Savory plates of karadjordjeva come steaming with organic chicken breast stuffed with kashkaval and prsute ($16). Traditional meat and cheese pies are accompanied by their own glasses of kefir, and are chock-full of minced pickles, cheese, or muscle-pumping spinach ($12). Wander into Saro's brocade-bathed walls on an early Sunday and probe a date for excessively personal information over a plate of pieckavice ($12), an 8-ounce sirloin, or keep it sweet with palacinke jugoslavian crêpes sweetened by homemade jams and preserves ($12).

Reviews

New York magazine's Grub Street has featured Saro Bistro, and Yelpers award it a perfect five-star rating:

  • Traditional Yugoslav dishes include savory pies in a puff-pastry shell ("a typical lunch" Elhalal explains); cevapcici beef kebabs; and a "pantry" plate that features, among other things, aivar, a traditional preparation of peeled, seeded, roasted vegetables, minced so finely the texture resembles caviar. – Grub Street
  • I couldn't have been more excited to stumble across this rare and perfectly executed find!! Delicious Eastern European Balkan cuisine in a romantic, beautiful, dark and cozy atmosphere. – Elizabeth O., Yelp
