Great art and great meals have a lot in common—they're both born of a boundless creativity, beautiful to behold, and drenched in maple syrup. Douse your sensibilities in an artistic experience with today's Groupon: for $10, you get general admission for two to the Wexner Center for the Arts, plus $16 worth of breakfast and lunch fare at Taste of Belgium, the Wexner Center for the Arts' café operator.
The Wexner Center for the Arts showcases the work of contemporary international artists across the expressive spectrum, in exhibitions, performing arts, film and video, as well as a wide array of public programs. After romping with a like-minded lunch date through Erwin Redl's hypnotic light sculptures and Tobias Putrih's Lego-like structures, just two of six exhibitions on view, sate your sophisticated appetite with deliciously continental European-inspired café fare at Taste of Belgium. Refined, yet budget-conscious eaters who don't adhere to staid conventions of what and when breakfast can be, will savor an afternoon Belgian waffle, along with a menu of creperie fare, sandwiches, and a full range of espresso bar delicacies. Admission to the museum is free for Wexner Center members, college students with an ID, and anyone under 18 years of age.
- [re: Salade Anversoise] Above a large bed of undressed mesclun greens were these three generously dished-up "salads": meaty chunks of chilled, real (not canned) tuna drenched in a bright and herby vinaigrette; an easy-to-love mass of mayo-enriched mashed eggs; and a nice, not-too-heavy, onion-punctuated chicken salad with slivered almonds, big pieces of meat and a slight fruity sweetness. – G.A.

- The Wexner is a gem not only for Columbus or Ohio, but for the entire midwest.....actually, for the United States in general. If you've not been, go. – Michael U.,Yelp
