Multicultural meals maintain an ability to impress diners with complex flavours and accurate calculation of currency exchange rates. Savour the feast of fusion with today's Groupon to Social Restaurant & Lounge in ByWard Market. Choose between the following options:

Social Restaurant & Lounge's chef Matthew Carmichael tempts tongues with a progressive amalgamation of French cuisine and North American culinary staples. An ample brunch menu hosts sunbeam-infused dishes such as eggs benedict, in which poached Beking Farms eggs and peameal bacon seek shelter beneath a creamy coat of hollandaise sauce ($14). A hearty lunch roster leads off with a Mariposa Farms duck-leg confit, flanked by pearl couscous and cherry chutney ($16), or an Alberta strip-loin steak frites topped with sumptuous herb butter ($24). Dinner guests weave their forks through an edible labyrinth of sea scallops, watermelon, and chorizo ($17), and the foie-gras Alberta-beef burger ($28), like a denim cravat, emanates both a fancy and casual charm.
Vintners of all tastes can find something to their liking on the multinational wine list, which represents 10 countries and more than 10,000 stained carpets. Live music and DJs sprinkle weekend guests with a smattering of tunes among the sleek interior's floor-length curtains, cushy lounge chairs, and exposed brick walls.
