Sharks are nature's perfect restaurant guests; they say little, eat quickly, and never run out of napkins or teeth. Learn the art of feasting from masters of the craft with today's Groupon: for $20, you get $40 worth of gourmet seafood and drinks at the aquatically themed Tiburón Restaurant in Litchfield.
Located inside the Wildlife World Zoo and Aquarium, Tiburón serves deep-sea treats with courtside views to a 60,000-gallon shark tank. Tiburón's menu features succulent seafood creations made with sustainably harvested fish. The New Orleans shrimp ($12.95) comes sautéed in Cajun spices in a beer-butter sauce, while the firecracker calamari ($9.50) sizzles in a spicy tomato coulis and roasted-poblano aioli. The East Coast is well represented with rich, creamy lobster bisque simmered with jumbo crab meat ($6 cup, $8.50 bowl). The entree choices are equally aqueous and ambrosial—a grilled Arizona pecan-crusted trout ($20) is served with wild-rice pilaf and seasonal vegetables in a lemon-butter sauce, while the shrimp tortellini ($22) comes with fresh asparagus and a choice of alfredo or marinara sauce. Diners who suffer from acute cases of crustacean commiseration can opt for land-based dishes such as the chef's famous roasted-duck tacos ($12.95) or a steak option ($28–$29) with a choice of sides. Each menu selection is paired with a wine or beverage recommendation.
In addition to the flavorful cuisine and envious sharks, Tiburón houses the Flamingo Lounge, a beverage bar located next to a live flamingo habitat where customers can challenge themselves to one-legged standing competitions against their fine-feathered friends. A white alligator also makes her home at Tiburón, though she is far less receptive to conversational advances. Thanks to the plentiful wildlife and lip-smacking comestibles, your dining experience at Tiburón Restaurant is sure to be as memorable as it is delicious.
This Groupon is only valid at dinner, which is served daily starting at 4 p.m.
