Italian cuisine accompanies many Americans through their rites of passages, from first dates over tiramisu to ceremonial breakup lasagnas. Guide your taste buds through life with today's deal: for $10, you get $20 worth of Italian fare and drinks at Vernon's Café in Niles.
Vernon's Café hosts feasts of classic Italian and American dishes in a warm family atmosphere. The dinner menu is populated with hearty starters such as the steamed mussels in a white-wine-garlic-butter sauce ($7) and a selection of fresh salads ($6.50–$10.50). Try the veal marsala ($17.50)—veal medallions sautéed with marsala wine and mushrooms—or entertain the handmade jumbo cheese ravioli which, like eccentric Italian uncles, are always stuffed with ricotta and spinach and bathed in a meatball-tomato sauce ($11). The lunch menu lights flavor flares with well-seasoned plates such as a bruschetta gamberetto caprese of chopped shrimp on tuscan bread with marinated tomatoes, basil, and olive oil ($8). Forge a peace treaty over a harmonious dish of cavatelli and sausage in a classic tomato sauce ($7.50) or delight enemies with a declaration of war folded in the ciabatta bun of a chargrilled chicken sandwich with roasted peppers and provolone ($7.50).
Guests are cheerily greeted by staff while tasteful flora and chandeliers set the mood for a 2001 Frog's Leap zinfandel from Napa, and a river of Italian reds and whites takes tongues on a tour of Italy without the taste-bud-poking paddles of gondoliers.
