Sampling international fare is the only way to truly experience another culture without having to try on all of its shoes. Pace your own path to satiation with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of eclectic international fare at Sip Bar.
Combining coffeehouse cool with club beats, Sip Bar entices patrons with an inventive array of international eats for brunch, lunch, and dinner. The restaurant delights morning diners with rise-and-shineables such as granola and yogurt ($7) or eggs in a basket, a more portable alternative to orange juice in a butterfly net ($10). Tongues in need of a tasty wakeup are treated to frothy, creamy cappuccinos ($4). Later in the day, small wooden tables cheerily grumble beneath the weight of roasted eggplant sandwiches, stuffed with garlic, roasted red pepper and mozzarella ($9), garlic shrimp ($17), and Hungarian-style goulash with potato dumplings ($20). Sip serves its full menu every day until 4 a.m., ensuring that hungry night owls needn't gnaw on coasters or deep-fried napkin rings.
The early evening sees Sip's metamorphosis into a funkier lounge and bar, often housing DJs, dancers, and glasses topped with party hats. Guests mix and mingle amid whitewashed brick walls, tastefully accented with art and leaning revelers.
