Unlike colds, toys, and romantic feelings for fairy tale characters, tapas are best when shared with others. Distribute deliciousness with today's Groupon: for $20, you get $40 worth of global dinner cuisine and drinks at either Takara or V-Grille at The Venue in Clearwater.
Housed in an entertainment hotspot, Viaggio bursts with distinct flavors and ingredients inspired by various European cuisines within its romantically lit upscale confines. Accidentally brush fingers with your date or the amiable stranger at your table over a plate of splitable tapas such as the garlic feta shrimp ($12) or the potato- and spinach-flanked filet and chorizo ($11). Especially hungry diners or those who failed Sharing 101 can lasso the gargantuan succulence of the 24-ounce sterling-prime-porterhouse steak swaggering in house-crafted steak sauce ($38). The lobster- and crab-crusted Atlantic swordfish spears oceanic appetites ($29) and the stuffed-chicken breast delights feathered fowl fans ($17).
Pair juicily carnivorous dishes with a glass of Beringer cabernet sauvignon ($10) or lighter nosh with Sonoma-Cutrer chardonnay ($14) from the extensive wine list. Patrons can snag a floral sake of the Tomio-diaginjo variety ($23 for 300 ml) to complement fish-centric meals or to toast individual rice grains for their singularly intoxicating virtues.
