Hot potato, the earliest dish designed to be passed, is nearly extinct due to the constant ravages of grade-school appetites. Today's Groupon revives shifting sustenance: for $20, you get $40 worth of Spanish fare and drinks at Toro Tapas Bar on Elmwood Avenue. Billed as Buffalo's first tapas bar, Toro Tapas boasts a menu of Spanish dishes and more than 100 wines. The signature paella ($41) serves two to three people with heaps of shrimp, lobster, clam, and chicken mixed into saffron rice, and can be coupled with a bottle of Campo Viejo Tempranillo ($24). The restaurant's polished wood surfaces, deep reds, and streamlined furniture add a modern feel.

Toro Tapas Bar

Chefs at Toro Tapas Bar infuse their genre-defying tapas with creative fusion cuisine such as bison quesadillas and saffron lobster. Waiters transport small- to medium-size plates to glossy red tables, where diners share bites family style, as mixologists behind a dramatically backlit bar fill goblets with more than 100 wines. High ceilings with exposed girders soar above the space, and terra cotta walls bear abstract paintings that, if stared at long enough, reveal a 3D image of which diner will pick up the bill.
