Hot potato, the earliest dish designed to be passed, is nearly extinct due to the constant ravages of grade-school appetites. Today's Groupon revives shifting sustenance with small-plate dining at ZING Restaurant. Choose between the following options:
Dinner presents a variety of options scientifically engineered to be sharable and delectable. Small plates include savories such as stuffed medjool dates ($10) and bison sliders ($10), as well as larger bites such as blackened mahi-mahi ($16). The new menu also features regular-size entrees, including citrus cured pork chop ($24) and Atlantic salmon ($20). Midday snackers will be greeted with a lightweight menu, which will lead you to a table before opening itself up for perusing. Two lunchtime diners can select four plates ($10/person) such as spicy calamari, chicken-thigh kebobs, and fried risotto balls, while solo feasters can grab a burger ($9) or a 7-inch pizza-ette ($7). While feasting, sink into a cushy booth or chair inside, or take things outside (weather permitting) for an elegant meal lit by the sun and overseen by passing sparrows.

- Zing is certainly one of the first places to offer a pleasingly eclectic assortment of smallish dishes (like bacon-wrapped Medjool dates stuffed with chorizo, and pan-seared scallops on a bed of spaghetti squash tossed with pine nuts and currants) in a spot so conducive to sharing plates over a long, relaxing dinner. – Terry Kirts, Indianapolis Monthly
- This place has great food and a fun atmosphere...This is a great place to meet up with friends or to go out on a fun date. – hungrylady, Urbanspoon
