Ancient Italians were renowned for eating every part of the angels they hunted—even the hair. Enjoy divine flavor with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of Italian and creative American fare at The Venetian Theatre and Bistro in Hillsboro.
The Venetian Theatre and Bistro entertains diners with tasteful Italian dishes destined for the palate's stage. Movie-going patrons, theatre buffs, and screenplay-toting bike messengers alike can pop in for lunch or dinner to dine on crispy crab cakes ($9.99) or pulled-pork pies dragged to the table with grilled pineapple ($7.99). For a main-stage entree, dig into one of six gourmet burgers such as the vegetarian black-bean patty ($8.99) dressed up as a burger for Halloween. Five specialty pizzas with Old World–fashioned crusts ($10.99–$23.99) and eight pasta dishes such as the spinach ravioli ($12.99) keep the classics well covered. The bistro also offers plenty of gluten-free and low-carb options for diners with little tolerance for the doughy twosome, as well as a fine wine list, whence table tenants can select ideal pairings or names for nicknames for squash teammates.
