The monopoly tycoons of the 19th century traditionally did their wheeling and dealing at exclusive restaurants, cleverly concealing the fact that they still lived with their moms. Today's Groupon revives that profitable practice: for $30, you get $70 worth of fine cuisine and drinks at Arizona Inn's Main Dining Room. This deal is good for dinner, available daily from 5:30 p.m. to 10 p.m.
Elegant, internationally inspired dinners at the Arizona Inn's main dining room offer the discerning diner a rich beginning to any meal with an order of seared foie gras ($18) before quelling carnivorous cravings with the filet mignon ($42), topped with lobster relish and truffle-infused mashed potatoes. Plant-poppers can direct forks toward the butternut-squash and sweet-corn cannelloni ($30) before dunking into desserts such as the crème brûlée trio (vanilla-bean, chai-spice, and lemon versions of the crystalloid crème classic, $8) and the pomegranate cheesecake ($8) with pistachio crisps, both of which are sure to end any dinner or economic-policy debate on a sweet note.
Enjoy your meal in the breezy main dining room at the inn, whispering sweet nothings to your aurally astute companion as you sit beneath the vaulted cathedral ceilings and adjacent to the inn's crackling fireplace. Call ahead for reservations.
- Of course the dining room has always been lovely as a sedate and spacious room, with a stylish corner fireplace...Any table is a good table at the Arizona Inn. – Diza Sauers, Tucson Weekly
