What You'll Get
Sharing a meal with a romantic interest puts you one step closer to sharing a second meal, a smooch, and a pair of "his and hers" crime-solving vans. Let your mouth play matchmaker with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of globally inspired, neo-American cuisine and drinks at The New Peter Shears in downtown Canton.
The New Peter Shears showcases lunch and dinner menus of creative, contemporary cuisine dreamt up by executive chef and gastronomic guru Nathan Mushrush. Awaken a slumbering appetite with an order of goat cheese fritters with red pepper coulis ($10) or barbecue-dusted calamari with cilantro aioli ($10). Fresh seafood dishes simultaneously set senses afloat and anchor the attention of distracted diners. Peter Shears's #1 ahi tuna ($25) displays sweet-and-savory sophistication, dry-rubbed with Madagascar vanilla bean and glazed with black sesame napa slaw. Even heartier entrees maintain their elegance, as proven by protein-packed plates such as rosemary-and-garlic-soaked spring lamb with mint apple jelly ($32) and Japanese bison ($30), a hoisin-grilled sirloin served with sesame-roasted shitakes and a nest of sweet potato. Plentiful pasta is also available, such as fettuccini alfredo ($16) or basil pesto penne ($16).
Peter Shears's vintage-tinged digs are flooded with warm amber sconce lighting, exposed brick, and wide wall murals of faraway landscapes that evoke a wistful longing for the incoming edibles. The romantic vibes that permeate the atmosphere are apt to turn knees into marshmallows and hearts into Valentine's Day marshmallow peeps, so steady a fluffified person against a handsomely appointed wood chair and prepare for a creatively composed but classically delicious meal.
This Groupon is not valid on holidays or the first Friday of the month.

- We've eaten at The New Peter Shears several times in the last 10 months and each time we experienced creatively and delicately prepared dishes that allowed the natural flavors to come through.
