Cooking food over an open flame can impart smoky flavor and seal in savory juices, but cooking food over an eternal flame can get a bobsledding team kicked out of the Olympics. Get your fill of flame-cooked fare with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $32 worth of American fare at Zato Bar & Grill, located in Bonney Lake.
Zato Bar & Grill sates pernicious cravings and thirsts with American fare and thirst quenchers ushered throughout a modern bar setting. Prepare for a flavorful feast with an appetizer, such as a California roll—Alaskan crab, avocado, and cucumber wrapped in an orange tobiko and sesame-seed sleeping bag ($8.99)—or the artichoke dip—a smooth blend of cream cheese, parmesan, and anaheim chilis ($9.79). Between the buns of the barbecue burger, homemade barbecue sauce flows like piquant magma across applewood-smoked bacon, crispy onion strings, and cheddar cheese atop a patty of natural beef ($11.99). The grilled pacific-northwest salmon swimmingly combines local, marinated coho salmon with Asian basting sauce on a fluffy bed of sweet ginger rice framed by a cucumber salad and hoisin-grilled onions ($17.99). Satisfy sweet teeth or teeth that taste like bones by stroking softly through the warm meltaway brownie, which arrives tableside with pairings of ganache and vanilla ice cream ($5.99).
Arid tongues can irrigate themselves with a brew flowing from the bar's 20 taps, with options such as Irish Death, Stella, and Blue Moon. Fifteen wines supplement the libation-based liberation, sacrificing their liquid souls along with their cocktail cousins, such as the yin yang chocolate martini—a blend of Godiva white chocolate liqueur, 360 double-chocolate vodka, white crème de cacoa, and the wisest spirit of all, Ghost Confucius.
