European cuisine can be both exotic and familiar, much like vacationing with one’s family or roasting a peacock for Thanksgiving. Give thanks with this Groupon.
$15 for $30 Worth of European Pub Food and Drinks
Hearty pub dishes draw inspiration from across Europe, from a fisherman’s pie with shrimp, mussels, haddock, and smoked steelhead trout ($18) to a Berkshire pork-shank confit ($19). Swiss-cheese beignets ($8) or belgian frites with curry mayonnaise and malt vinegar ($5) kick off international meals. See the current incarnation of the seasonally rotating menu.
Pig & Fiddle
Hailed by StarTribune writer Tom Horgen as the "top Twin Cities destination for adventurous beer-drinking," the Muddy Pig put themselves on the maps of local and international beer connoisseurs. At the second venture, Pig & Fiddle, the bar was raised even higher with 36 beers on draft—including a slew of Belgian-style brews—to go with chef Cristian de Leon’s menu of pub eats made from scratch.
Each day from 11 a.m. until 1 a.m., chef Cristian de Leon prepares hearty dinner entrees using recipes gathered from rustic locales and cooking oils derived from melted Renaissance paintings. Along with artisanal cheeses, house-prepared meats, and boiled pierogi, the kitchen specializes in new and classic cuisine. Aside from the nightly dinner menu, The Pig & Fiddle frequently curates events such as special dinners with course-by-course beer pairings.
