What You'll Get
Enjoying the cuisine of another country can inspire people to someday travel there, where they will undoubtedly eat a cheeseburger and immediately come home. Save yourself the trouble with today's Groupon: for $20, you get $40 worth of upscale gastropub fare at The Fat Dog. Choose between the following locations: Hollywood or Montrose.
With its roster of gourmet comfort classics, The Fat Dog appeals to omnivores, vegetarians, and—in the Hollywood location—canine companions who don't mind dining on the patio until 7 p.m. Celebrate the intersection of meat and dairy with the braised short-rib french dip sandwich, which crowns its ribs with gruyere and royal caramelized onions ($14 at both locations), much as pro wrestlers outfit their abs with purple robes and tiny jeweled scepters. Vegetarians can satisfy sandwich cravings with the alternative burger, which blends chickpeas, alfalfa sprouts, a lemon-herb aioli, and a brioche bun ($12, Hollywood location only), or a portobello-mushroom sandwich with eggplant ($11, Montrose location only).
Diners who opt to eat outdoors at the Hollywood location can let the breeze cool their jalapeño mac 'n' cheese ($8 at both locations), which arrives at tables packed with more flavor than a piñata stuffed with cumin seeds. Swedish meatballs tag team with baby-gold potatoes and lingonberry sauce ($12 at both locations) for a blend of sweet and savory, and an array of draft beers and wines cleanse palates. Peruse the available eats online with the Hollywood menu or the Montrose menu.
