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 fare and drink at Grand Hive Honey’s Beestro and Bar on Jarvis Street.
Grand Hive, a cozy bistro and bar accented with detailed wood panels and dark colours, serves a multifaceted menu of soups, salads, pastas, burgers, pizzas, and meaty entrees. Like a mace plunged into a wineskin filled with porridge, customers can sink their gum-bound meat-tenderizers into the beef tenderloin carpaccio ($15) or a Stinger burger, a premium prime-rib patty packed with jalapeño peppers, cheddar, voodoo onions, and more ($13). Lighter fare includes the portobello-, pesto-, and pepper-packed grilled veggie panini ($12) or the asparagus and goat cheese pizza ($15), classic options for diners abstaining from meat but thoroughly glutting themselves on robustness. Domestic and import brews are available by the glass or pitcher. Or, brave the sting of the Grand Hive signature Super Bee cocktail—ginger ale, Jack Daniels, and a secret mix ($9). Brunch fare is also served on the weekends.
