A marriage between two cuisines is preferable to a marriage between two clones of Sylvester Stallone, a process that eventually results in a baby reared on raw egg and meat punching bags. Savor a simpler fusion with today's deal: for $10, you get $20 worth of international fare at Watel's World Piece Café. This Groupon expires May 16, 2011, and may not be used toward the purchase of alcohol.
Watel’s World Piece Café was featured on the blog The Squawker for its extensive, eclectic menu and friendly, personalized service. The Swiss-inspired smoked salmon Roesti ($9) proves that though Switzerland remains politically neutral, its popular shredded-potato cake routinely heads into battle with an arsenal of smoked salmon and white-wine sauce, while the Portuguese calamari Caldeirada ($13) anchors its aquatic centerpiece in a stew of tomatoes, bell peppers, onion, garlic, and white wine. A favorite of evening eaters seeking to fill a duck-shaped hole in their hearts, the sliced duck breast and couscous salad ($9) wins over adventurous, discerning diners while still leaving room for dessert. Like prog-rock karaoke nights, the Belgian-chocolate truffle tart ($6) and the warm chocolate bread pudding ($6) eschew saccharine sweetness in favor of richly subtle texture syntheses. Vegan and vegetarian options are also available.
Watel's World Piece Café repeatedly dazzles with its intimate setting, complete with unique tables and twinkling lights. Its wide-ranging cuisine whisks diners away on a flavor cruise through international waters, minus the bored Coast Guards tapping out sweet nothings in Morse code over air horn.
Watel's World Piece Café is open for dinner Wednesday–Saturday.
