Welcome to Groupon, Lakeland! For our inaugural deal, for $25, you get $50 worth of upscale Mediterranean-inspired dinner fare and drinks at Zohra's Lakeside Restaurant, or for $12, you get $25 worth of lunch fare. Zohra's Lakeside Restaurant is located at 101 Lake Wire Drive. Since this is everyone's first Groupon, allow us to briefly explain how it works.
How Groupon Works
Groupon is a combination of the words group and coupon. Each day, we offer an unbeatable deal on the best of Lakeland: restaurants, spas, sporting events, theater, and more. By promising businesses a minimum number of customers, we get discounts you won't find anywhere else. We call it "collective buying power."
If you want to get the deal, just click BUY before the offer ends at midnight. If the minimum number of people (10 for today's deal) sign up by the end of the day, you'll be emailed a gift certificate the next morning. You can print your Groupons or redeem them with our mobile app. Use them whenever you want until the deal expires—today's expires in one year. If not enough people join, no one gets the deal (and you won't be charged), so invite your friends to make sure you get the discount!
The monopoly tycoons of the 19th century traditionally did their wheeling and dealing at fine dining establishments, cleverly concealing the fact that they still lived with their parents. Fool your friends and neighbors with today's Groupon to Zohra's Lakeside Restaurant, an elegant eatery located on Lake Wire Drive. Choose between the following options:
- For $25, you get $50 worth of dinner fare and drinks (valid 4 p.m.–close)
- For $12, you get $25 worth of lunch fare and drinks (valid 11 a.m.–4 p.m.)
Lakeland diners flock to Zohra's to feast on fine cuisine paired with beautiful lakeside views. The family-owned restaurant's menus are the inventions of Le Cordon Bleu graduate Chef Jose Rodriguez, who dreams up Mediterranean-inspired dishes that are equally artistic in preparation and presentation. Start a romantic lunch with tapas for two, a plate of bite-size Spanish appetizers ($12), or open negotiations during a business dinner by feeding your boss a spoonful of smooth lobster bisque ($10). Rather than administering tableside pop quizzes, Rodriguez keep taste buds on their toes by regularly rotating the menu. Recent savory entrees have included an Australian rack of lamb dressed in a burgundy reduction ($28), and snapper ala mariniere, pan seared and served with mussels, white-wine sauce, and a fork ($24). Zohra's welcomes vegetarians as warmly as it welcomes meat-lovers and Bill Gates lookalikes with tasty plates such as pasta pomodoro—tri-color spirals tossed with homemade tomato sauce, fresh mozzarella, parmesan, and herbs ($13).
- The lunch was absolutely the best ever. We ate out on the veranda and it was the sweetest setting to sit and have a wonderful conversation over a glass of wine. – Cathy T., Insider Pages
- Zohra's is a delightful dining experience. Chef Jose's creations are always pleasing and the wine choices excellent. – OpenTable reviewer who dined on 09/22/2010
