Like a bean-bag chair with a monocle or a quilt remade into a sexy cocktail dress, it's sometimes nice to fancy up one's favorite comforts. Today's Groupon reinvents our culture's coziest meals with $25 worth of scrumptious classics at Capitol Hill's Table 219 for $10.
The Table 219 menu twists favorite foods into gourmet goodies by turning a BLT into a salad with bacon vinaigrette ($7) or usurping the potato with zucchini fries topped in parmesan and dipped in horseradish sauce ($6). The corndog has been elevated by chicken andouille sausage ($8), while the nachos clean up nicely under a layer of duck confit ($9). Desserts finish the menu as it begins with delicacies like the 219 ding dong (a ding dong with chocolate mousse, glaze, and coconut touile; $6) or a donut a la mode ($6).
One Groupon can be used per table, so you might want to take the opportunity to add a gloss to your comfort friends that matches your fancy comfort food. Bring them into Table 219's stylish interior and upgrade your drinking buddy to a worldly raconteur, or that one boy friend you're always hanging out with into the one boyfriend you're always hanging out with.
The Seattle Times writes that Table 219 is:
- ...a fun, eclectic roster of small and not-so-small plates that are inventively imagined. – Providence Cicero
- Those of my friends who had not been before are planning to go back immediately- we basically ordered most of the menu and shared, there wasn't a bad dish on the table, it was all top notch! – JAAntos, Citysearch
- The service is fast and friendly and we always feel right at home, but no dishes to clean up! – TapGirls, Citysearch
- The food is inspired, inventive and delicious. – Alysha Janmohamed, Urbanspoon
After 10 years cooking in the frenetic kitchens of New York City restaurants, Executive Chef Jeffrey "Cheffrey" Wilson moved to Seattle hoping to find room to freely express his culinary talents. The owners at Table 219 were impressed by his experience at Gramercy 24 and gave him that chance by asking him to develop their menu. He eventually became a partner of the business as he honed his own brand of New American fare, whipping up dishes such as bison burgers and mini tuna-tartar tacos. After taking the reins as sole owner, he renamed the restaurant Americana to reflect the eclectic cuisine and the eatery's interior design. Dark woods and tin-tile accents create a rich, historical ambiance ideal for gatherings with friends or reenactments of pioneer speed-dating events. Wilson relies on a team of mixologists to stir up specialty cocktails—such as the Lemon Meringue Pie with whipped-cream vodka—that also complement the stars-and-stripes vibe.
