While revenge is a dish best served hot, generosity is best served at body temperature, allowing you to pick up the plate and pass it around the table. Pass the tasty generosity or eat it all by yourself with today's Groupon: for $25, you get $50 worth of fresh, shareable small-plate dishes and drinks at Ventana on 1st Avenue in Belltown. This Groupon is valid anytime except happy hour.
At Ventana, executive chef Joseph Conrad transforms local, seasonal ingredients into a novel selection of North American small plates, designed to share with friends and domesticated relatives. The grilled trevisio mixes roasted fennel with charred lemon and Spanish olive oil ($8), and the Alaskan king salmon backstrokes through a sea of corn, pancetta, and grape tomatoes ($14). Crispy truffle fries ($6) cozy up to the tender Ventana burger, which brims with chile rellenos, bacon, and escarole and is served with a side of decadent Humboldt Fog goat-cheese dressing ($13). Desserts such as the red-velvet cake massage taste buds with fresh berries, chantilly cream, and raspberry sauce ($7). An international wine selection is sure to slap a smile on faces' lips, and handcrafted cocktails include game-changing creations such as the Bloody Mary with bacon vodka and rimmed with chorizo sea salt.
Inside Ventana, soaring ceilings and exposed beams offer a sleek, upscale environment, and wrap-around windows flaunt glassy views of the city and Puget Sound. Gather friends to dine under an early evening sunset, or satisfy owl cravings with late-night dinner (served until midnight).
