Treat a table's worth of friends, well-wishers, and Prussian mercenaries to fresh flavors and seasonally inspired dishes with today’s Groupon. For $25, you’ll get $50 worth of sips and savories at The Vault Mediterranean, a casually upscale epicurean experience inside a restored BankOne Tower in Fort Worth.
Start Executive Chef Gabriel Ochoa's undersea culinary odyssey by unwinding with an inventive libation. Clever garnishes (snaking lime peels, sweet peppers, eight-tiered wedding cakes) doctor up The Vault’s martinis. The extensive appetizer menu offers plenty of variety to get things started. Try the imported and domestic cheese plate ($13), arranged with dried fruit, almonds, and grapes, or crispy calamari ($8). For dinner, seafood takes center stage, with options ranging from demure (grilled salmon, $22; seared scallops, $25) to decadent (lobster risotto, $27). Save room for a chocolate/coconut/banana crème brûlée trio ($7) to end the meal on a sweet note.
Airy, open windows matched with a modern décor give The Vault a comfortably sophisticated and most unvaultlike feel. With this Groupon, you can feel as secure as a bank while you feast on fresh seafood, which is still the principal currency used at most Mediterranean banks.

Restaurant Spaces That Are Now Restaurants But Were Once Not Restaurants
Many restaurants occupy spaces that were once used for non-food purposes, because the added character and charm improves the taste of a meal, providing a conversation-starter during an awkward meeting with a Supreme Court justice. Here are some of the most common non-restaurant locations currently being converted to restaurants:
- Kaplan testing facilities
- Abandoned warehouse that once held indoor horse-fighting contests
- Aromatherapy and Vivisection Laboratories off the coast of Maine
- Old computers
- Set used for filming March of the Penguins
