If you're serious about winning an offseason gold medal and getting showered in praise, don't try curling against the Swedes on an empty stomach. Today's Groupon merrily fills depleted tanks with $45 worth of comforting meals for $20 at Tarragon in Sunnyvale. The restaurant features a savory spread of fresh cuisine hydrated by diverse wines and signature cocktails.
The dinner menu is a savory spread of fresh starters, salads, and entrees. Appetites can dip their toothed toes in the edible waters of baked brie puff pastries ($9) or Dungeness crab cakes with avocado mousse and mango salsa ($9.50) before a hearty wedge salad with prosciutto and feta ($6). Larger plates support a wealth of robust entrees; braised short ribs are matched with onion strings and garlic mashed potatoes ($19.50), while the rack of lamb chooses the friendship of rosemary roasted taters, grilled zucchini, and a mint-scented lamb reduction ($24). Seaside cravings extend toward the mesquite-grilled salmon over cherry-walnut rice ($18.50) and the smorgasbord offerings of cioppino, a celebration of mussels, clams, shrimp, white fish, potatoes, and a sea of spicy tomato sauce ($16.50).
In addition to the edible array, Tarragon treats feasters to a lavish ambience of semi-circular booths against brick walls and elevated seating peppered by white-linen tabletops. An attractive outdoor seating area houses diners during cooperative weather, while uncouth storm clouds with angry eyebrows encourage patrons to populate the beautiful bar. Pomegranate martinis and green-tea lychee cocktails ($10 each) are a few of the many buzz-worthy sips on the grounds at Tarragon.
