Like a box of fine china or a man covered in ants, cocktails just beg to be shaken. Stir up the nightlife with today's Groupon: for $12, you get $25 worth of gourmet pub fare and drinks at Zen Bar in Plainville.
Zen Bar’s chef, Michael Torres, carefully crafts an array of flavorful dishes, which patrons can imbibe while enjoying one of 200+ martinis, 65+ beers, and many events, such as trivia night, hosted by the bar. Diners can tap toes to the vibrations of live bands while noshing on one of the menu's 24 appetizers, including the dip-worthy tempura-chicken bites with thai chili sauce ($8). Digit-handled dishes reach new heights of piquancy with buoyantly flavored wings ($6 for six), dressed in garlic pesto, peanut butter, or one of eight other savory sauces. The Flaming Burger's jalapeños and salsa skate on a layer of chipotle mayo ($9), performing spicy salchows and double-axels of deliciousness—what figure skaters do after getting ceremoniously squirted with chocolate syrup. The culinary team can fill a plate with crab cakes paired with a spicy remoulade ($9) and fill a glass with a refreshing martini.
