Making food from scratch typically requires advance preparation, adherence to a recipe, and your third and final genie wish. Save the third wish for more wishes with today's Groupon: for $12, you get $24 worth of American fare at Tonic Bar & Grill, located near the David L. Lawrence Convention Center downtown. This Groupon is valid only after 5 p.m., and the restaurant stays open until midnight.
This double-decker restaurant serves freshly crafted American edibles that quickly transform hollow mouths into satisfied smiles. Diners can ignite their appetites with fried chicken wings ($8), accompanied by a choice of sauce and celery sticks for tabletop drum solos, or squash flatbread ($9), a light appetizer held down by zucchini, squash, tomatoes, goat cheese, parmesan, and pesto oil. The Samurai burger ($13.50) flirts ferociously with patrons via love notes written in wasabi mayo, fried wontons, and seaweed salad. Customers may also tickle their tongues with the blackened-chicken sandwich ($10.50), infused with Cajun spices, or a feather dipped in the loaded mac 'n' cheese ($9).
