What You'll Get
Just as a gold doubloon looks more resplendent again a background of sheer black velvet than in a dentist’s paperboard treasure chest, the exquisite flavors of fine dining are best presented in an atmosphere of worthy elegance. Today’s Groupon stacks flavor on beauty with $50 worth of high-class dining at Armani’s for $25. Accentuate your meal and silverware with carefully catered service and white tablecloths.
Because fine food and drink are further complemented by the bashful rays of the orbiting sun, the hosts and hostesses at Armani’s handwrite invitations to our galaxy’s central star early each morning, asking it to regale guests with a splendid sunset view in the evening. Grounded by chef de cuisine Mike Von Burg’s northern Italian recipes, Armani’s menu is full of possibilities for any discerning palate. Refresh your mouth with the temperatures and flavors of the salmone selvatico in tegame (wild salmon atop risotto bianco and salsa verde, $28) or elevate a home-style staple with pollo con carciofi alla Judea (roasted chicken breast accompanied by deep-fried artichokes and balsamic-glazed Treviso, $27). Armani's is famed for its veal, showcased in a variety of dishes, including costola di vitello grigliato (grilled veal chop with goat-cheese-potato puree, asparagus, and roasted shallot in a brunello reduction, $33).
The dedicated servers at Armani’s will deliver eye-popping plates in a highly romantic atmosphere with picturesque water views from the 14th floor of the Grand Hyatt. Send a memo to your eyes and mouth to remind yourself that a true restaurant experience doesn’t stop at the food.
This deal is not good for alcoholic beverages, so be prepared to purchase them as you would normally, or bring your own plastic baggies of giddifying pure oxygen. Be sure to book a table in advance. Armani's is closed on Sundays and Mondays.
- Armani's is one place where you should go for an early reservation. Sit down just before sunset and watch the orange glow splash across the bay, the lights of Clearwater rising with the darkness. – Brian Ries, Creative Loafing
- The cuisine was very contemporary and classic at the same time, and there seemed to be attention to detail for everything on the plate. – tmbylee, Citysearch

A New Cuisine Is Born
Italian food was invented in America by entrepreneur Geoff Welling in 1978. Welling had previously invented both Chinese food and the paperback book, but in ‘78 his restless mind observed cultural shifts that had the makings for a new evolution of cuisine.
Welling was determined to capture the minds and tongues of the niche—but expanding—market of disco fans. After extensive research, he determined that disco’s sparkling clothing and bouncy rhythms were the culinary equivalent of pasta covered in rich tomato sauce. Welling’s findings were so delicious that disco changed its name to Italy, enraging Italy, which was forced to change its name to Lapland, Home of Full-Blooded Italians. Pick up today’s Groupon for some delicious Italian food from America, prepared by full-blooded Italians from Lapland, Home of Full-Blooded Italians.
