What You'll Get
The earliest attempts at cuisine-mixing were done by throwing a variety of dishes in a hamster ball and using it to play dodgeball. Today's Groupon gives you a taste of evolved food fusion. For $30, you get $75 worth of sexy and spicy Spanish, Mexican, and Argentinean fusion from Sazo's Latin Grill, perched above the River Walk in the Marriott Rivercenter. Open daily for lunch and dinner until 11 p.m., the restaurant caters to late-night eaters fueling up for a graveyard shift spent digging sand traps at a golf course.
The atmosphere and dress code at Sazo's is casual and Euro-hip, with sleek, clean lines accentuated by a soft color palette and herds of candles. Like seduction, Sazo's meals begin with just a small taste. Flirt with fresh guacamole made at your table ($9) or grilled shrimp with spicy chile dipping sauce and mango pico de gallo ($10). The romance deepens with the arrival of the pan-seared fish Veracruz with green olives, jalapenos, capers, and ridiculously good-looking veggies ($20), while the chipotle chicken enchiladas with salsa verde, Spanish rice, beans, and cilantro cheese ($18) strut down the plate runway in a way that other enchiladas wouldn't even dare.
Pair your meal with a glass of wine, specialty cocktail, or a Sazo margarita that features a beguiling moustache of salt around the rim. With an expansive tequila selection, specialty margaritas are served atop a substantial cocktail napkin perfect for scribbled phone numbers and elaborate proclamations of amorous obsession.
