Before business suits and brainstorming, the power lunch was nothing more than a high stakes arm-wrestling match, with winners earning a lively plate of eel and a lifetime supply of light bulbs. Pamper yourself with the culinary perks of the 21st century with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of globally inspired small plates and drinks at Tango Bistro, a Smuggler's Group restaurant located on Macleod Trail South. This deal is valid for lunch and dinner, and customers who redeem their Groupon for Tango's business lunch will receive two complimentary "shot-glass" desserts.
Tango Bistro utilizes fresh, local, and regional ingredients whenever possible to concoct creative small plates and innovative international dishes. Fulfill midday emptiness while keeping it professional with the all business lunch, an assortment of three plates served within an hour timeframe. For the flat price of $16.50, you can create a well-rounded meal akin to a poetic sumo wrestler, featuring a montage of dishes such as a tapenade and hummus starter, a serving of mushroom and truffle gnocchi, and a roasted heirloom-beet and apple salad, spruced up by festive fennel seed and a luxurious white-truffle and alfalfa-honey vinaigrette. Dim the dark howls of afternoon-snack-deprived stomachs with dinner-menu items such as the tagliatelle pasta, supplemented with a zesty gorgonzola cream and a heaping helping of wild mushrooms ($12), or the grilled steak sandwich flatbread with peppercorn roasted-garlic sauce ($12).
Lustrous hardwood floors, wooden furniture, and rustic ornamentations lend a haute-couture-lumberjack feel to Tango's interior. Dissipate into a booth with family, friends, or booth enthusiasts and allow a member of Tango's attentive waitstaff to divulge an opinion on wine pairings for your meal. Call ahead for reservations.
