When deprived of flavorful sustenance, the mouth will often retaliate by shouting your bank-account number at sporting events or turning every sentence into a high-pitched jingle. Tame an unruly tongue with today’s Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of contemporary American cuisine at The Tin Angel.
The Tin Angel dishes up a seasonal dinner menu chock-full of fresh, locally sourced ingredients in a gently restored dining room complete with brick walls and an idyllic fireplace. Guests can fix forks into a warm goat-cheese salad drizzled with a citrus-ginger dressing ($8), or indulge in a local bites platter that serves Benton Farms prosciutto, house-made summer sausage, Tennessee cheddar, corn cakes, sweet-potato hummus, and an edible photo of a neighborhood farmer ($9). Elegant entrees fit for a royally rumbling stomach include a flavorful flood of lobster-and-shrimp risotto ($19), and the Apple Rum Pork Chop, which serves the grilled cut with white-cheddar mac 'n' cheese and a freshly chopped vegetable salad ($17.50). Bun enthusiasts can anchor incisors into an all-natural, grass-fed Angel Burger, topped with Benton Farms bacon and Tennessee buttermilk cheddar and served on a homemade focaccia bun with hand-cut fries ($12.75).
Daily specials round out The Tin Angel's menu, and a weekly prix fixe three-course dinner boasts geographical, cultural, and historical links in its quest for the perfect culinary pairings. While not included in today's Groupon, The Tin Angel pours an impressive array of around 100 wines, and guests can fire corks into the restaurant's period tin ceilings for a melodious ding-filled cacophony.
