Like attaching a fake mustache to a Halloween mask or cleverly changing your name from Obi-Wan Kenobi to Ben Kenobi, adding a new ingredient to something familiar can render it delightfully unrecognizable. Enjoy inventive eats with today's Groupon: $10 for $20 worth of modern American cuisine at Spark Restaurant in Provo.
Spark Restaurant's mad kitchen scientists infuse a menu of classic American dishes with imaginative, contemporary twists. Appetizers of herb fries ($5.95) enlist the aid of garlic aioli and warm bleu cheese sauce to throw pursuing hunger pangs off diners' tracks. Guests can wrap fists around chicken club sandwiches, stuffed with savory stacks of tender grilled chicken, bacon, avocado, butter lettuce, and tomato and anointed with chipotle aioli ($9.95). Bacon and melted swiss cheese grace the blt burger ($11.95–$15.95), and the shrimp salad ($11.95) allows feasters to partake in an amphibious dining experience without riding through the restaurant on a salamander. House-made lemonade ($4.95 bottomless) gooses tart taste buds, and stripped pina coladas ($3.50) scrawl epicurean epilogues across tongues, penned in pineapple juice and coconut milk.
Spark Restaurant's patrons nosh beneath serpentine chandeliers in a sleek, airy dining room. Two tiers of open dining space create an ideal setting for painting the town red or stringing tin cans to the balcony to ask servers for drink-pairing suggestions.
