If cooks never borrowed from other cultures, restaurants would be bereft of such innovations as the denver omelet, the mexican pizza, and the tartan chefs hat. Partake of flavors from foreign lands with today's Groupon: for $35, you get an internationally inspired dinner for two at Out Take Bistro in Studio City (up to a $77.65 value). The dinner includes:
Salvador-born chef Alfredo Rodriguez merges culinary traditions from across the globe to forge Out Take Bistro's extensive and eclectic dinner menu. Culinary companions begin gourmet pilgrimages in the Far East with a plate of subtly spicy shrimp pot stickers, sauteed and tossed in zesty sesame dressing amid a backdrop of snow peas, baby greens, and enoki mushrooms. Two small signature salads, romaine misted with miso dressing, shower palates clean before they dive into main courses such as the Atlantic salmon, which dons a dark cape of blackened spices alongside a roma-tomato and caper sidekick, bravely protecting tables and winning over the jaded denizens of Metropolis. Atop a bed of steamy fettuccini, a red-wine-and-herb reduction permeates a tender lamb shank, and a selection of homemade ravioli delivers delicious pasta packages of pumpkin, crab, or ricotta and spinach to tongue doorsteps. A closer of warm apple strudel crowned with homemade ice cream and ribbons of chocolate and caramel brings meals to a decadent end.
A panoply of red, white, and sparkling wines join draft and bottled beer such as Newcastle and Stella Artois to gild glasses atop the dark wooden bar. Pale-yellow walls bear richly hued oil paintings and opulent burgundy curtains as a giant wagon-wheel chandelier hangs from the ceiling in tribute to the owner's semester abroad spent on the Oregon Trail. Outside, the covered patio flanks its sunny dining space with crosshatched wood dividers alongside an array of leafy foliage.
