The first European explorers set sail with hopes of finding new, exotic spices to placate the palates of epicurious monarchs, but all they found were heaps of boring, inedible gold. Pick up where they left off by broadening your mouth's horizons with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of eclectic American fare and drinks at The Bay Leaf, a cozy College Hill eatery located on East Douglas Avenue.
A flavorful cavalcade of revamped American classics populates The Bay Leaf's lunch and dinner menus. Homemade dough surrounds delicious ground beef, cabbage, and cheddar cheese in each of the decadent, golden-brown Bierock Bites ($6.99), acting as a palate prepper for tasty stuffed sandwiches such as the Hawaiian chicken wrap ($6.99) or the cheesy Lava Burger ($7.49). Kick back in the comfy, elegant dining room and inhale the aromas of homemade chicken-fried steak ($10.49) without ever having to wrap a Big Bird costume around a tempestuous steer.
Although reviews for The Bay Leaf are still growing, the Wichita Eagle recently featured it.
- The menu is an eclectic mix: vegetarian spring rolls next to nachos on the appetizer menu, three different Hawaiian-themed offerings, chicken-fried steak next to pasta primavera, and more. – Denise Neil, Wichita Eagle
