With your kitchen's pots and pans inhabited by the evil spirits of dead pots and pans, cooking at home has become both time-consuming and spooky. Get quality cuisine without interference from crazed kitchenware with today's Groupon: for $12, you get $25 worth of classic American comfort food at The Patio, an indoor–outdoor dining destination in the West End.
Conceptualized by the owner and former executive chef of the renowned Dd33, The Patio takes a creative approach to classic American grub, utilizing locally sourced ingredients whenever possible. The Patio's burger is served with smoked salt and Asian-chili-seasoned fries ($10), proving to naysayers, such as the cast of Saved by the Bell: The New Class, that existing favorites can be tweaked successfully. But before you dive into a main dish, warm up your tasting tools with an order of buffalo-chicken tenders ($7) or spinach-and-artichoke dip with fresh tortilla chips ($8). Weekend warriors can brunch on steak and eggs ($16) or the quiche-of-the-day served with fresh salad greens ($9) to replenish for the night’s beer-busting battles.
Vibrant color fields of tangerine, lime, and mango encase The Patio's casual, beach-inspired confines, juxtaposed by dark wooden tables and handsome, modern lines. Simultaneously treat your family to dinner and a show by sitting in the dining room, where an open kitchen allows curious epicureans to watch their sustenance take shape. If at any time the kitchen action gets too salty or saucy for the young ones, momentarily redirect their attention to one of The Patio's 12 flat-screen TVs, or migrate the party onto the eatery's namesake patio. The outdoor eating space is completely covered, allowing for al fresco dining regardless of dreary forecasts, and circulating fans and a custom-made streaming waterfall facilitate George of the Junglesque dinner dates regardless of restraining orders filed by Brendan Fraser.
