In addition to being mashed into delicious guacamole, avocados can be enjoyed in myriad ways, from smoothing skin on faces to serving as an emergency kidney. Celebrate the fruits of our neighbors' labors with today's Groupon: for $20, you get $40 worth of Mexican fare at Tequila Sea Cantina's Crown Point and Lowell locations.
Tequila Sea Cantina flies in its seafood daily, gathers fresh, organic produce, and ages its fillets and rib eyes for 21 days to ensure all dishes teem with potent Mexican flavor. While patrons scan the menu, chefs arrive tableside to mash up fresh guacamole made to exact flavorfications ($8 for a half order; $11 for a full order). The vaquero bone-in rib eye supplies strapping stomachs with a hearty 22-ounce slab of aged choice cowboy-cut meat ($34), and fish tacos invite pescatarians to select from a roster of retired tide ticklers that includes mahi mahi, tuna, and sea bass ($14), freshwater lobster ($18), and seasoned grilled shrimp ($13). Those who order the catch of the day select from options such as sea bass ($26) and salmon ($18) to be prepared blackened, pan seared, grilled, wrapped in parchment paper and steamed, or etched with the text of a Shel Silverstein poem. Shimmy while you sate on Thursday nights, when Tequila Sea Cantina fills its dining room with the rhythms and melodies of live music.
At Tequila Restaurante, green peppers and onions sizzle and snap in steaming skillets, as much a soundtrack to any traditional Mexican restaurant as mariachi and corrido music. Many of the other sensory details of an eatery in Mexico fill the restaurant, including the citric bite of ceviche and the aromas of carne asada. Tequila Restaurante serves up traditional margaritas as well as those made with fresh banana, banana liquor, brown sugar, cinnamon, and other unorthodox ingredients.
