The Pearl's fancypants Fenouil — one of the whiter-tablecloth fine-dining spots in town — is unveiling a slew of special deals to help get asses in seats during NeverendingRecession2010, and take a deep breath, kids: Mondays and Wednesdays, get half off a bottle of wine (with a $20 food purchase); Tuesdays and Thursdays feature pours of discounted local beer and wine; while Sundays are now crowned industry night, with 30% off the entire food bill in the bar if you're a card-carrying food handler.
And to nail home the spot's newly-more-accessible aura, chef Jake Martin has also unveiled a new small plates menu in the bar area, featuring bites like rabbit sausage tortellini, lamb tartare, and ahi tuna crudo (price points: $4 on the low end for fries, to $17 on the high end for west coast oysters with trout caviar). The revamped, deal-friendly Fenouil is already in effect.
