Contemporary cuisine evolved when people got tired of mashing potatoes with giant boulders and puncturing soufflés with arrowhead spatulas. Embrace a modern take on meals with today's Groupon to Yanos Restaurant. Choose between the following options:
At Yanos Restaurant, contemporary seafood dishes mix company with various chicken and beef selections, as well as a handpicked collection of boutique wines. During lunch, the bloody mary gazpacho—which comes chilled and topped with fresh crab meat ($5)—cures breakfast-food hangovers, and the crabcake sandwich elevates lumps of crab drizzled in roasted-pepper aioli atop a toasted kaiser ($11). Dinner plays host to roasted chicken in dijon-herb jus ($17), 8-ounce prime burgers ($12), and brine-cured pork loin ($17), accompanied by garlic spinach and potatoes smashed by mermaid tail.
The spacious eatery's modern interior complements its contemporary fare with powder-blue and canary-yellow walls, track lighting, and Warhol-esque pop-art prints of Marilyn Monroe and Charlie Chaplin's moustache comb. Outside, next to a palm-tree-lined cobblestone street, Yanos's sidewalk seating allows diners to graze under the shelter of an awning or sturdy canvas umbrellas.
At Yanos Restaurant, chefs glean inspiration from global pantries to plate dishes that have been lauded by Florida Weekly as “artful presentations comprised of first-rate ingredients.” Chefs augment the flavor of grilled duck breast with jicama slaw and black-bean puree and coat soft-shell crab in a crispy tempura batter. The wine list is equally broad in scope, with bottles hailing from Spain, South Africa, Germany, and Andromeda.
