A day of strenuous mental gymnastics and quick-fire verbal repartees can work up an appetite in even the toughest of professional quipsters and witologists. Refuel your brain through the grind of your mouthbones with today's Groupon: for $25, you get $50 worth of fine wines and seasonal feasts at Table 17 in Leslieville/Riverside. This Groupon is not valid for redemption on Sunday or Monday evenings.
Table 17 uploads upscale cuisine with a seasonally changing dinner menu of fare made fresh from local ingredients and inspired by European cooking techniques such as the Denmark Dice, the Fosbury Flop, and the Ballroom Blitz. Appetizers include a white gazpacho ($8) with white grapes, fennel, and almonds, and shared plates such as the polenta ($14) and the restaurant's acclaimed hot balls ($11.50 for a full size)—namely the goat-cheese hot balls with wildflower honey—have the appetizing ability to reunite jilted lovers split over differing Inception theories. Recent entrees have included rainbow trout ($24), spaghetti pomodoro crudo ($18), and an organic black cod ($26). Leave vacancy in your stomach shelter for desserts such as the Italian classic, tiramisu ($8), and the house-made cheesecake ($8). Return wine to cool, dark quarters by downing a glass or bottle of palatable type-A grape blood.
Table 17 is the well-fed brainchild of executive chef John Sinopoli, whose previous cooking experience includes adventures in Japanese, French, and American cuisine. Step into Table 17's rustic interiors of candlelit comfort and fork the feast-beast that earned the restaurant honours as an OpenTable Diners' Choice winner.
