Sharing good food with friends is one of life's greatest joys, along with finding a quarter that's not glued to the ground on the same day that your future fiancée decides to go metal detecting. Sample the good life with today's deal: for $15, you get $30 worth of fresh, seasonally inspired small plates, large plates, non-alcoholic beverages, and more at Vintage 301, located on Martin Luther King Junior Drive.
Hungry locals are drawn downtown by Vintage 301's tapas-style cuisine. Because dishes are prepared using fresh, locally sourced ingredients, the menu changes seasonally. Recently featured small plates include deep-fried calamari with citrus aioli ($9), apple and chèvre ravioli ($9), and saag dip, a savory plate where pita chips are positioned for dredging through a landscape of puréed spinach, ginger, and yogurt cheese ($7). Patrons equipped with bigger appetites can find one-stop fulfillment in a large plate, such as the pork-ribs souvlaki, an oregano- and garlic-rubbed pork-rib with zesty lemon potatoes and tzatziki ($18), or the Moroccan fish dish, which serves up spice-rubbed rockfish, orange and olive salad, spinach couscous, and one stamp for your palate's passport ($19). Finish your feast on a sweet note with some vanilla-infused chocolate gnocchi ($6).
Bright white trim provides handsome contrast to the candy-apple walls that encase Vintage 301's spacious, vivacious confines, where sumptuous black leather couches cozily accommodate large gatherings of friends, families, and mannequins with 90-degree-angle knees. Regularly scheduled entertainment contributes to the restaurant's community-friendly vibes. Reservations are required, so call to schedule your visit.

- The menu states that breads come from Simple Kneads. That is almost worth a recommendation in itself. Combined with meats from Giaccomo’s, I started looking forward to the evening even before we ordered. – John Batchelor, News & Record
