For $20, today's deal gets you $40 worth of gourmet grub at The Savant Project. Located on Tremont Street, The Savant Project is a mix of urban chic and casual dining that provides just enough.
The Savant Project's menu boasts exquisite lunch or brunch bites like the half-pound Angus burger stuffed with Vermont cheddar cheese and topped with crispy applewood bacon ($11), and surf-and-turf omelettes ($9.50) stuffed with chicken, salmon, chorizo, roasted veggies, cheddar, and mango salsa. Lunchtime loungers can savor Savant's signature specials such as Savant steak frites (marinated filet mignon, yucca fries, caramelized onions, and herbed parmesan, $21.50) or beer-battered fish tacos with smoky slaw and guacamole ($15). Lighter, more-social appetites can tip-toe among the tapas with a few plates of beef sliders with ginger, cilantro, and cucumber ($9.50) and raw tuna sashimi in a lime, sesame, and wasabi vinaigrette ($9.50)—it's like the sushi gods cried a salty-sweet tear in the shape of tuna sashimi right into your mouth.
Savant also offers a signature brunch on Saturday and Sunday, so late-nighters can nurse their war wounds in the morn with a tall stack of fresh ginger pancakes topped with whipped lime cream and sake drunken berries ($8).
