To function properly, the human body requires a steady stream of nutrients, sunlight, and compliments from other species about its opposable thumbs. Use your bendable digits to provide yourself with nutrients with today’s Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of creatively eclectic cuisine and drinks at Twist Restaurant and Lounge in Belltown.
A long-standing anchor of the vibrant Belltown nightlife district, Twist Restaurant and Lounge entertains eager epicureans with a bevy of beverages and a tastefully trend-setting menu. Appease your appetite with starters such as steamed edamame with house-made soy salt ($4) or pleasantly piquant jalepeño wontons ($4). Pork-belly sliders arrive sporting pickled fennel and miso butterscotch ($6), and moroccan chicken wings airlift their cargo of harissa glaze and cucumber crème fraîche to taste buds stranded behind despotic molars ($7). Diners can supplement the savories with a selection from the dessert menu, such as red-velvet cake, an easy way to add a dash of sophistication to any gathering without ponying up for a red-velvet tuxedo or red-velvet portrait of Elvis ($5).
Twist's colorful cocktail list pleases a diverse coalition of thirsts with classy creations, such as the Mandarin Kazi—made with Absolut Mandrin, triple sec, orange juice, and muddled citrus ($8)⎯or a Blue Bubbles, an effervescent pour of Segura Vidas cava brut with a spirited splash of Pearl Blueberry vodka ($9). Twist's sleek, hyper-modern décor, full of crisp black leather, colorful walls, and brushed metal, makes an ideal setting for an impressive first date, a fun get-together with friends, or a night out to let the members of your posse get to know the members of your entourage.
