If humankind never learned to play with its food, it would never have learned to play with its ingredients, and the world would be one bereft bowl of gruel. Taste the fruits of culinary creativity with today's Groupon: for $35, you get dinner for two at The Pecan Restaurant (up to a $75 value). The meal includes:

  • One shared appetizer (up to a $15 value)
  • Any two entrees (up to a $30 value each), excluding the surf 'n' turf, rib eye, and fried lobster tails, which diners can order for an extra fee.

The Pecan's executive chef and owner Tony Morrow regales diners with a menu of traditional Southern fare infused with international influences. An evening of intimate chit-chat and discreet lip-smacking begins with a choice of four appetizers, ranging from a sautéed Tybee Island crab cake (a $15 value) to savory antipasto (a $10 value), a piquant platter of vine-ripened tomatoes smothered in a tuscan trinity of feta cheese, basil oil, and a balsamic reduction. Trade stories about pastoral childhoods between bites of lightly pepper-crusted New Zealand lamb chops (a $29 value) as you sculpt a flattering rendition of your tablemate's face out of a side of garlic mashed potatoes, or startle awake dozing taste buds with a spicy menagerie of blackened shrimp and Cajun angel-hair pasta (a $27 value). Resting atop a bed of pepper jack grits, the fried catfish (a $24 value) mixes Southern fare with Italian ingredients that harbor secret suspicions about the vegetarian portobello Napoleon (an $18 value).

Bright, golden light fixtures and majestic red curtains enclose patrons beneath the high ceilings of The Pecan's intimate dining room. The restaurant's white table cloths and blond-hued wood floors create a warm and enticing space, and the exposed brick wall—emblazoned with a Coca-Cola ad from 1917—provides a convenient counting exercise whenever there's a lull in conversation.

The Pecan Restaurant

The Pecan Restaurant's head chef Tony Morrow collects ingredients from the recipes of his favorite chefs, finding ways to work each of them into his own cuisine. The first flavor he fell in love with was pecans, a staple of his mother's cooking. Later in life, he encountered the rich spices of Cajun and Indian cooking, the perfectly prepared meats in French recipes, and the delicate pastas of the best Italian kitchens. He took these culinary experiences and, inspired, created his own masterpieces with each one, blending and changing each until he created a type of southern cooking all his own.

He serves his fusion food in a classic southern-style dining room full of light woods and white tablecloths complemented by the deep red curtains that hang around the space. During the eatery’s remodeling, a giant Coca-Cola advertisement—first painted in 1917—was discovered beneath the room’s drywall. Now re-exposed and retouched, it emblazons an exposed brick wall and adds last-century charm to the dining room, reminding its guests of a time when life was simpler and cola poured from the drinking fountains.
