Fine dining, like jewel-encrusted Jet Skis or gilded toothpicks, can add elegance to an evening out that's otherwise marred by profane outbursts at the judgmental moon. Treat your taste buds to gourmet cuisine without cursing orbital bodies with today's Groupon: for $20, you get $50 worth of sushi, steaks, and more at 398 West, open Sunday through Thursday.
398 West offers fine dining made finer by its kosher certification, with a kashrut-abiding menu prepared with as many fresh and local ingredients as possible. Beneath high ceilings that dangle glowing pendant lamps like futuristic earrings, candlelit tables with crisp white linens make fine backdrops for selections from 398 West's sushi bar. Punch up your table with a vibrant avocado maki ($7), a spicy-tuna roll ($10), or the Tex-Mex roll ($16) with fresh tuna sashimi, diced tomatoes, and avocado chunks, tossed in dynamite sauce and served over California rolls. After once again asserting dominance over sea creatures—this time without the use of a flamethrower—dig into 398 West's dinner menu. First courses include Atlantic salmon sliders ($12), house-cured spiced beef jerky served warm ($16), and chicken-liver pâté ($12). Main dishes include braised lamb shanks ($38) with potatoes, squash, beans, and greens, and a 30-day aged 16 oz. rib steak ($39) with market vegetables and hand-cut fries. Before returning your fierce appetite to its cage in the basement, treat it to 398 West's brownie dessert ($12).
As diners drain an apple martini ($10) from 398 West's cocktail menu, they can eye-swim in the canvases of the Judaic art adorning 398 West's handsome and spacious dining room. As a special bonus to Groupon buyers, 398 West is offering a complimentary sushi roll (your server will provide you with options) to customers who redeem their Groupon on Mondays, Tuesdays, or Wednesdays.
The restaurant will be closed June 9; this offer is only valid for dine-in, redeemable starting May 23.
