Q:

My fiance is vegetarian and I eat chicken and shrimp. Can this groupon accommodate both of us? I'm confused about this part of the deal: One shareable entree per couple of teriyaki sirloin, filet mignon, chicken, shrimp, and spinach ravioli with seasonal veggies and dipping sauces (a $36 value each). Choose from four available cooking styles. Do we get to pick a single meat? or does it come with all of that? I don't eat beef so would I just get more chicken? and is the spinach ravioli an option to pick or do all plates come with that? Thanks!

Pretesh M.  asked on  Aug 5, 2013

A:

Good day Pretesh! Yes the Groupon can accomodate both of you. The entrees come with all the items listed above, but we do have substitutions available for vegetarians as well. These options include artichoke hearts, portobello mushrooms, Thai peanut marinated tofu, and wild mushroom sacchettis! Simply sub out the items on the plate you do not care for, including no beef for extra chicken! And yes all of the plates come with spinach raviolis.
