Without taste buds, consumers would top ice cream with motor oil, forcing the development of a market for chocolate- and caramel-based lubricants. Bask in fossil fuel-free flavors with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of Italian cuisine and drinks at Spirito's Restaurant. This elegant Federal Hill eatery provides patrons an edible escape, serving sophisticated lunch and dinner menus of authentic old-world fare in a beautiful Victorian-era mansion. Prep expectant palates with an appetizer of calamari kissed with garlic, hot peppers, and olives ($11.95) before moving on to a bold main course such as savory gnocchi sorentino finished with eggplant, plum tomatoes, and ricotta and mozzarella cheese ($17.95). Entrees are easily paired with a selection from the house wine list, which brims with reds and whites imported from Italy and violet-reds imported from boxes of crayons.
The Providence Journal featured Spirito's Restaurant:
- We enjoyed a leisurely meal at a lovely place where a new page of history is being written. – Michael Janusonis
From the road, Spirito’s Restaurant looks like a laid-back beach house, with white siding, a gabled roof, and a covered, wraparound porch. But indoors, furnishings such as candle-strewn chandeliers, enormous Persian rugs, and dark wood wall paneling create a more luxurious ambiance. White tablecloths host plates of traditional Italian pasta, grilled pizzas, and fish and veal entrees in subtle wine sauces. Glass stems can globetrot through an international wine list offering more than 20 wines by the glass and another 20 by the bottle. Spirito's also caters events with buffets, to-go trays, and hearty brunch spreads.
