Dining etiquette requires one to use a soupspoon for gazpacho, a dessertspoon for crème brûlée, and chopsticks for fitting in when dining with a walrus. Learn to harness an arsenal of utensils with today’s Groupon: for $35, you get $70 worth of fine dining and wine at Anthony’s in the Catalinas.
The enticing aromas of gourmet appetizers and dinner entrees seep from Anthony’s kitchen into five elegant dining rooms, united at the scenic foothills of the Santa Catalina Mountains. Diners can kick-start sophisticated feasts by lapping up a bowl of french onion soup infused with gruyere cheese ($8) or by plumping cheeks with shrimp lejon, stuffed with horseradish and packaged in applewood-smoked bacon strips ($16.95). For the sausage bucatini entree ($30.95), chefs concoct their own Italian protein links before sautéing them with roasted tomatoes, red bell peppers, garlic purée, and a dash of pure happiness. The roasted rack of lamb ($38.95) arrives at tables crusted with a dijon crust and rosemary mint sauce, and the grilled vegetable platter and jasmine rice duo ($31.95) shuns meat in solidarity with most sock drawers.
A pair of experienced sommeliers aids patrons in their pursuit of the perfect sips to complement their meals. More than 1,700 wines (bottles start at $25) from around the world and outer space reside in the restaurant’s underground cellar, which customers can tour if they ask politely.

Anthony’s in the Catalinas
Surrounded by vistas of the rising foothills of the Santa Catalina Mountains, the only view more impressive at Anthony’s in the Catalinas than the one from the window is its trophy wall. Among its accolades, Anthony’s counts the Award of Excellence from DiRoNA—the Distinguished Restaurants of North America—and the AAA Four Diamond Award. The restaurant has its chefs to thank for these awards, who tirelessly craft hand-made sausages, slice tender beef medallions, and roast duckling until its buttery and crispy. A pair of experienced sommeliers cultivate a collection of more than 1,700 wines from around the world, a feat which garnered the restaurant the Grand Award from Wine Spectator. The fine beverages reside in the restaurant's underground cellar, which customers can tour if they say one of the magic words “please” or “shazam.”
