Restaurants cater to the basic human desires to sit down, be fed, and trade bites of their meal for salient relationship advice. Barter your way to love with today's Groupon: for $20, you get $40 worth of american cuisine at the McInnis Park Club Restaurant at the McInnis Park Golf Center in San Rafael.
Head chef Tim Harmon fuses the flavors of the land and the sea, crafting a menu of american offerings. The hazelnut-crusted petrale sole basks in a hot spring of beurre blanc amid a wreath of vegetables ($19.95). The slowly braised Three Putt pot roast ladles a savory sauce over the divots in its meat and mashed potatoes ($18.95). Lighter fare includes an array of hearty salad entrees ($6.95–$16.95), as well as a small plate of coconut prawns lounging in a thai dipping sauce as contentedly as a prospector inside Fort Knox ($11.95).
The Club Restaurant's selection of quaffables highlights vinous offerings from California wineries, with such area sippables as the robust 2007 Dashe Dry Creek Valley ($9.75/glass). Diners can indulge in their culinary selections amid the rose-lined outdoor terrace or within the vibrant red, yellow, and green-accented walls of the Club Restaurant's dining room. A veritable rococo landscape of flora adorns the seating area, and a fireplace flickers dutifully in the corner, charming patrons with its ambiance and encyclopedic knowledge of ghost stories.
