What You'll Get
The ancient Egyptians pioneered the art of grilling when they used oil lamps to slow-roast jackal-headed mummies during the feasts of Osiris. Today's deal provides a grilled feast free of ancient curses: for $15, you get $35 worth of eclectic American eats and drinks at Triumph Grill in Midtown, one of St. Louis magazine's Best New Restaurants of 2009.

Triumph Grill's eclectic menu of lunch and dinner fare tosses a melting pot of international flavors through a sausage grinder of American comfort food for a bold, contemporary dining experience. Upgrade mallrat memories with a shareable starter of Milwaukee’s finest soft pretzels ($6)—served with tangy dijon and Guinness dipping sauce and house-made potato chips—and a cup or bowl of creamy forest mushroom and leek bisque ($4/$5.50) before heading to a savory sandwich, gooey melt, or enticing entree. The smoked shrimp enchiladas ($16)—a shrimp-stuffed crêpe filled with roasted corn, avocado, and green chile cream sauce, with a side of cilantro rice pilaf—whisk rowdy coed taste buds south of the border for spring break, while the grilled vegetable and three-cheese lasagna ($15) sates the sober salivary glands of mature herbivores. Even Triumph's classic burgers showcase culinary imagination; the ISDT Burger ($9) is topped with melty gruyere cheese, caramelized onions, and roasted garlic mayonnaise before luxuriating languidly on a divan of toasted brioche.
In addition to serving up top-tier eats, Triumph Grill is adjacent to the Moto Museum—a collection of 125 early 20th-century European motorcycles. Diners can peruse the vintage bikes for free, provided that no events or Steve McQueen impersonators are booked. Triumph also shuts down the street in front of the restaurant each Thursday evening in August for its free summer concert series. Bring your doppelganger's dental hygienist to Triumph Grill for some tunes and bike-themed bites with today's deal.
