Southern meals often include a bowl of grits to help diners feel full and act as mortar for cornbread castles. Indulge in multipurpose meals with today’s Groupon: for $20, you get a Southern dinner for two at Z’Novia in the Bronx (up to a $51 total value). Each meal includes the following:
- One appetizer (up to an $11 value)
- Two entrees (up to a $14 value each)
- Two glasses of wine (up to a $6 value each)<p>
At Z’Novia, cooks prepare classic Southern fare in a transportation-accessible storefront just across from Yankee Stadium. Diners can rev up their masticating machinery with appetizers such as chicken-and-spinach quesadillas, served with sour cream and salsa, or chicken fingers with honey-mustard sauce, ideal for eaters throwing, javelin-like, into each other’s mouths. For the main course, fresh Atlantic salmon leaps from spring to pan for a searing or blackening or onto the grill for its barbecue iteration, and the vegetable platter or Cajun tilapia and shrimp with cheddar grits both come with a choice of sides. In true Southern fashion, the eatery’s sides include a cornucopia of perfectly seasoned garden offerings such as sweet-potato fries, crisp side salads, or smoky collard greens unfazed by the growing popularity of their goody two-shoes cousin, kale. If they catch the right night, diners can sip glasses of house wine as they soak in live jazz, R & B, or Latin music.
