When deprived of flavourful sustenance, the mouth will often retaliate by shouting your bank-account number at sporting events or turning every sentence into a high-pitched jingle. Tame an unruly tongue with today’s Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of upscale dinner fare at The Chilled Cork Restaurant and Lounge in Chatham.
The Chilled Cork's skilled chefs enhance their menu's seafood, beef, and pasta classics with upscale preparations and international flavours. Seared rainbow trout surrounds itself with the edible edifices of roasted potatoes and baby spinach ($21), and full ($25) and half ($20) racks of baby back ribs lay cradled under a mantle of ancho barbecue sauce. Reward mouths for their abilities to sing elegant arias and stifle compulsive squawking with a helping of creamy vegetable risotto ($19), or marvel as beef-tenderloin tips spike spinach volleyballs over a net of tagliatelle ($19). Diners mingle amid the modern and casual dining room's abstract artwork, flickering candles, and exposed brick walls.
