Sharing a meal out strengthens family bonds in a civilized way, unlike invading the neighborhood block party and laying siege to the bounce castle. Subjugate your hunger with today’s Groupon: for $20, you get $40 worth of seafood and homestyle fare at Tropical Palm Cafe. Tropical Palm Cafe pairs home-cooked classics with mouthwateringly fresh seafood. Platters of baked Atlantic salmon ($17.95) belly-flop into a delicate dill sauce, and the six-piece New Zealand rack of lamb ($21.95) rests upon mounds of garlic-whipped potatoes slathered in rosemary-mint jus. The talented chefs artfully prepare shellfish such as stuffed jumbo shrimp filled with crab cake and baked in rich newburg sauce ($16.95) and sautéed Maryland crab cake served with a flavorful tarragon remoulade ($18.95). Tropical Palm Cafe prides itself on its menu’s home-cooked appeal and welcomes diners with laid-back tropical décor marked by colorful flowers, a full bar flanked by glowing neon palm trees, and friendly flamingo maitre d's.
Tropical Palm Cafe
At Tropical Palm Cafe’s island-themed bar, mixologists shake cocktails and diners split deep-fried calamari with housemade marina. Chefs draw upon experience accrued during nearly two decades in business to roast racks of New Zealand lamb and stuff fillets of sole with crabmeat. Live entertainment during occasional shows fuels happy chatter and distracts tablemates from the fact that you are still wearing the T-shirt that ruined Thanksgiving.
