Taste buds can easily turn into viciously passive-aggressive taste frenemies without proper attention. Keep your tongue from gossiping behind your back with today's Groupon: for $20, you get $40 worth of upscale American comfort fare and drinks at The Fleetwood in downtown San Diego.
The Fleetwood feeds bellies with modernized American comfort dishes and custom cocktails in an upscale, recently updated setting. Several TVs give eyes a chance to watch athletes score points while mouths browse the seasonal menu, which boasts items made in-house and without songbird helpers. For dinner, nab a comforting bite of the apple honey-glazed pork loin snuggled next to white cheddar mac ‘n’ cheese ($18), snarf up the grilled chicken pasta ($13), or slice into the grilled sugar spice rib eye, with toasted, garlicky broccolini, handcrafted tater tots, and drizzles of peppercorn sauce ($27). Weekend brunch allows hungry patrons to wake up the right way on Saturdays and Sundays with the San Diego benedict, featuring poached eggs, tomato, and avocado over a biscuit ($11).
The Fleetwood provides plenty of dessert options to add a sweet conclusion to meals. The wine menu helps dinner descend more smoothly, and dusty throats can also refresh themselves with the basil lemondrop martini—a Stoli and Cointreau concoction with a muddle of sugar, basil, lemon, and pure, unadulterated love.
