Though meals tend to bring friends together, meals peppered with magnets can push them apart. Enjoy an attractive repast with today's Groupon: for $25, you get $50 worth of upscale American fare at The Black Horse Restaurant and Tavern in Denver.
At The Black Horse Restaurant and Tavern, prodigious executive chef Benjamin Ash and his staff of culinary experts concoct a menu of upscale seafood and steak dishes. Diners sink fangs into pan-seared crab cakes ($24), doused with whole grain mustard sauce and lured to plates with a tasty bait of spring slaw and Old Bay fries. The 12 oz. grilled strip steak ($28) bathes in a red wine sauce alongside crispy tempura onion rings, while a bowl of roasted chicken mac and cheese ($18) mingles penne pasta, house-smoked bacon, and wild mushrooms with roasted garlic and chicken. The north atlantic cod ($23) teams up with crab tater tots and a lobster butter sauce to dazzle patrons with well-paired seafood flavors and pitch-perfect sea shanties.
On the eatery's cozy terrace, as many as 60 diners converse over entrees at wrought iron tables. Though this Groupon is not valid for alcohol, the tavern area slakes thirst with more than 35 beers and a wine menu that, like geese's mailing addresses, changes with the seasons.
