Local produce hails from nearby farms and spends less time in transit, resulting in crisper textures, riper flavors, and more understandable accents. Understand the roots of your food with today's Groupon at The Mustard Seed in Davis. Choose between the following options:

• For $15, you get $30 worth of upscale American fare and drinks for dinner.
• For $10, you get $20 worth of upscale American fare and drinks for lunch.

The Mustard Seed's menu relies on seasonal ingredients for its delectable California cuisine, which fills the rustic cabin-side dining room with the heady aroma of fresh produce and specialty meats. At dinner, the grilled rack of pork finds a match in a sophisticated housemade BBQ sauce as it nestles atop yukon gold potatoes with corn, cheddar, and green onion. The very first bite of decadent macadamia-nut-crusted wild Hawaiian butterfish ($24) triggers endorphins strong enough to derail threatening letters from your stomach, and gnocchi with basil pesto ($18) cavorts in a delectably umami mash of kalamata olives and toasted pine nuts.

Lunch guests may mix and match a gourmet feast from a selection of small plates, including a rich, gazpacho ($7) and utensil-snubbing sandwiches stuffed with exotic almond-curry tuna salad ($8.95) or luscious turkey and creamy avocado teamed with crispy applewood-smoked bacon ($9.95) for a textural thrill to rival a whole warehouse of bubble wrap.

Pair The Mustard Seed's locally yielded menu items with a glass of Mother Nature's grown-up juice from an extensive California-based wine list. Tongues revel in the barrel-oak tones of Tomei Cellars' '07 zinfandel ($7.25/glass) and the lighthearted notes of the crisp Monteviña '07 pinot grigio ($8/glass) provide an ideal way to celebrate a job promotion from stenographer to skywriter.
