The most common way to experience the Deep South is to find a street magician and hope he pulls a shiny Louisiana state quarter from your ear. Today's Groupon presents another option when there are no illusionists handy: for $25, you get a three-course dinner for two at the Delmar Lounge (up to $58 value). The three courses for two include:
* Any two salads (up to a $6 value each) or soups (up to a $5 value each)
* Any two entrees (up to an $18 value each)
* Any two desserts (up to a $5 value each)
Delmar Lounge fills the air with the smell of Creole-inspired American fare and the sound of live jazz, soul, and funk music. For the opening scene of three-course dinners, Delmar’s dining directors calm down stage-shy crawfish bisque, adjust the chopped salad’s homemade creole buttermilk dressing, and freshen field greens as they step into the limelight with pecan-encrusted goat cheese. Corn relish enlivens an entree of grilled tilapia, and churrasco-grilled sirloin blushes at the whispers of its companion, dirty rice. After pleasing diners' palates with shrimp, grits, and andouille sausage, Delmar gives them a sweet sendoff with a trio of pies, including Frangelico-chocolate meringue, bourbon pecan, and key lime.
Globe lights hang from Delmar Lounge's red awning, beckoning nighthawks in to enjoy homestyle Cajun fare and live music late into the night. The kitchen churns out house-smoked barbecue ribs, southern-style shrimp and grits, and po boy sandwiches until 2 a.m. every night of the week, fortifying bodies and fueling feet in preparation for live DJ dance parties, jazz sets, and hourly potato sack races that sustain the convivial atmosphere until 3 a.m.
