Some Restaurants Really Want You

And Here’s What They’ll Do To Get You

By Seattle Met Staff February 20, 2009

A few good deals to munch on over the next few:

Lisa Dupar’s Pomegranate Bistro is delighting Redmond with its Happy Afternoons, available Tuesdays-Fridays from 3-5pm. It features a $4 menu with options like a pulled bourbon braised beef sliders on mini blue cheese biscuits, calamari and artichokes with citrus aioli, or an organic green salad. A glass of red or white, or of Pomegranate’s signature ‘pomerita,’ is just $5.

At El Gaucho in Seattle, ‘Power Hour’ has been extended to include Sundays from 5pm-11pm. Eat in the bar/piano lounge and the entire bar menu is half-price, from the Mac N’ Coastal Cheddar Cheese Penne to the half-pound (big enough to share) 410 Burger. Select cocktails are $7; a glass of wine is $5.

Tango Restaurant offers rotating discounts-by-the-day during the springtime. Mondays are half-price bottles of wine, Tuesdays are half-price El Diablo desserts, Wednesdays they’re offering happy hour prices in the bar all night long, and Thursdays they don’t charge corkage fees for those who want to bring their own wine. There’s got to be a bargain for everybody in that list.

Finally, Ponti is offering its “Plenty for Twenty” promotion, where every night til the end of February $20 will buy a dinner of smoked salmon spinach ravioli, braised Hawaiian short ribs, or Jumbo Gulf Prawn linguini. Soup or salad is even included.

Pssst: An addendum from The Tablehopper. The latest issue of Seattle Metropolitan will hit the stands next week…and inside it offers insider intelligence on the aforementioned El Gaucho (a review of the new Bellevue branch and some love for its Bananas Foster) AND Tango (more love for its El Diablo dessert). Yeah, it’s our desserts cover…and it’s really too sweet to miss.

I’m just sayin.
