The first European explorers set sail with hopes of finding new, exotic spices to placate the palates of epicurious monarchs, but all they found were heaps of boring, inedible gold. Pick up where they left off by broadening your mouth's horizons with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of eclectic American fare at 3 Point on East Market Street.
3 Point’s newly opened downtown eatery houses an updated menu of sophisticated lunch and supper fare. The mid-day menu features pared-down portions of the eatery’s dinner dishes, with similarly succulent starters—including the fresh Maine lobster rolls ($8.99) and grilled Mediterranean lamb ($10.99)—alongside an abundant selection of salads, sandwiches, and wraps. Dinner diners can ponder whether or not to take the plunge into marriage, that English-to-Navajo translation of Ulysses, or 3 Point’s many evening-time entrees. Selections range from plates of pasta ($14.99+), formerly finned sea-fare ($13.99+), savory sandwiches ($8.99+), or carnivorous creations, such as the hand-cut and fire-grilled 8-ounce center-cut filet mignon ($28.99), or the pecan-crusted Georgia chicken, drizzled with a sweet peach coulis ($16.99).
The sleek eatery, with its polished wood floors, plush padded booths, and understated, neutral color scheme, is an ideal place to stop for sustenance after a stroll through Akron’s historical district or your neighbor’s master closet. Housed in the former Big City Chophouse space, it retains its predecessor’s clean and upscale atmosphere while providing fresh, delicious, and eclectic American cuisine.
While online reviews for 3 Point are still growing, the Akron Beacon Journal recently featured the restaurant.
3 Point Restaurant
In 2010 Domenic Fragomeni and Chad Leek decided to follow their shared passion to own a restaurant and have been serving downtown Akron ever since. The name they chose, "3 Point Restaurant", is a reference to Akron's Historical District, the place where "Commerce Meets Culture". 3 Point Restaurant has now added the 3rd point, "Cuisine".
The duo's menu of hand-cut steaks and fresh seafood springs from the sauté pan of Chef Josh Pere and the old-world recipes of Olympia Fragomeni; more than 20 inventive martinis flow from the shakers of a team of experienced bartenders.
