Though coveting thy neighbor's wife or underground sprinkler system is beyond the pale, longing for a mouthful of his cuisine is an understandable desire. Today's Groupon satisfies desires to eat from the table of our nation's neighbor: for $20, you get $40 worth of Mexican fare and drinks at The Salsa Room in Arlington, VA.
The Salsa Room heats up patrons' appetites with authentic Mexican cuisine in a vibrant, welcoming setting. Kick off the savory shindig with an appetizer of chip-topping, homemade guacamole—ripe avocados toothsomely blended with tomatoes, onions, bell peppers, and cilantro ($5.99). Carnivorous diners may delve into a duo of beef enchiladas ($8.99), or sink teeth into churrasco a lo pobre, a grilled 12-ounce New York steak tastily touring with an entourage of beans, spanish rice, plantains, french fries, and eggs ($12.99). Those who prefer their meat meatless may opt for specials such as the chiles rellenos platter sporting cheese-filled poblano peppers ($8.99). The Salsa Room cooks up shareable servings as well, such as the el gordo platter, loaded with enough beef and chicken fajitas, ribs, and shrimp to sate a famished quartet or one lonely, club-going whirlpool ($38.99 for 4 people).
After dining on divine dishes, guests at The Salsa Room are welcome to sashay over to the lounge. Kick up heels in the namesake dance on the amber wood floors, or wrap yourself up in the deep-red curtains and let your ears bounce to the DJ's tunes. Today's Groupon is valid only in the restaurant; some events may require tickets or a cover charge.
The Salsa Room
Inside The Salsa Room, Latin artists such as Marc Anthony, Oscar D'León, and Gilberto Santa Rosa croon to diners pouring over a menu of steak and seafood dishes. Drawing on influences from Latin America and the Caribbean, the club's chefs construct a menu bursting with spicy, flavorful ingredients like a piñata full of jalapeños. Chorizo adds a splash of flavor to breakfast, lunch, and dinner dishes, creating taste-bud-tempting fare such as the house specialty guiso de garbanzos con chorizo—a blend of chickpeas, beef, and spanish chorizo in a tomato-based creole sauce. On Wednesday at 8 p.m., salsa and bachata dance instructors take to the floor to lead patrons in the rhythmic steps and sly glances that compose Latin choreography.
