Cooking food over an open flame can impart smoky flavor and seal in savory juices, but cooking food over an eternal flame can get a bobsledding team kicked out of the Olympics. Get your fill of flame-cooked fare with today’s Groupon: for $15, you get an unlimited Mediterranean dinner or lunch buffet for two at Sinbad’s Feast in Johns Creek (up to a $29.98 value).
Sinbad’s Feast specializes in fresh, authentic Mediterranean cuisine, served as a bountiful buffet that fills patrons’ plates with fresh kebabs and savory stew. Appease appetites with a starter of kashke badamjoon, a creamy dip made with eggplant, fried onion, mint, garlic, and whey, or most-o esfenaj, a tangy yogurt spread with sautéed spinach. Sinbad’s culinary craftsmen toast many morsels over open flames to enhance flavor and set the mood for the kitchen staff’s ghost stories. Platefuls include whitefish marinated in a sweet rain of limejuice in the Mahi kebab, as well as tender sirloin tips bathing in the tomato sauce of the bademjoon stew. Vegetarians can make merry with meat-free meals such as the adas polo, in which lentils, raisins, and fried onions mingle happily atop steamed rice like dancers at a particularly rowdy physics conference.
Sinbad’s Feast houses a spacious dining room with high ceilings, dark wood furnishings, crimson accents, and natural lighting that illuminates courses. The restaurant designates a special corner for its hookah lounge, where patrons partake in flavored smokes while relaxing on piles of pillows mounded atop plush day beds. Sinbad’s Feast occasionally hosts live entertainment, including a troupe of belly dancers that, like grasshoppers, undulate their abdomens to produce high-pitched chirps when birds of prey are present.
