Locally sourced cheese is always preferable to moon cheese, which was found to have dangerously high levels of Buzz Aldrin's chest hair. Enjoy a fresh Earth meal with today's Groupon: for $12, you get $25 worth of fresh, sustainable seafood at Shoreline Grill. Offering a top-notch dining experience, the downtown restaurant has welcomed hordes of seafood-seeking patrons since opening in 1989. One Groupon may be used per table for lunch and two for dinner. Groupons are not valid for alcohol or take-out.
Led by executive chef Quinten Frye, Shoreline Grill's talented staff of culinary virtuosos crafts a menu of delectable dishes from locally sourced produce and sustainable seafood. Shoreline’s wide range of dinner options—including seared scallops with corn puree, wild mushrooms, and sugar snap peas ($25); seared ahi tuna with tabbouleh, mint chutney, and sumac ($26); and arctic char with asparagus-mushroom-potato hash, tarragon, poached duck egg, and sauce foyot ($24)—stimulate palates without utilizing electrical shock spices. Likewise, discerning diners and dolphins can brutally stomp lunchtime hunger's face with grilled fish tacos ($12) and Chilean sea bass with pate choux gnocchi, tomatoes, arugula, and lemon oil ($22). As seafarers fill themselves with delicious sea fare, the restaurant's sustainable practices ensure that it doesn't deplete the ocean's limited supply of tacos.
In between courses, patrons can wind down and soak in an elegant yet rustic atmosphere lined with the striking artwork of Guillermo Hinojosa-Canales, whose layered, abstract painted stories of mythical heroes are even more captivating than a wall of framed Etch A Sketches. Additionally, Shoreline Grill's scenic outdoor seating provides fetching views of Lady Bird Lake and Austin’s famous Mexican free-tailed bats with their robin sidekicks. Things that seem impossible on an empty stomach, such as skydiving straight into space or convincing a boss to trade spouses, slide into the realm of the certain after devouring a Shoreline Grill meal. Call or send a horse-saddled messenger to book a reservation.
