One of Benjamin Franklin’s last theories was that taking in a good view while eating aids both in digestion and in the ability to squeeze milk out of coal. Prove him half-right with today’s Groupon to Atlantica, located at The Allegria Hotel. Choose between the following options:
- For $25, you get $55 worth of dinner for two.
- For $49, you get a dinner experience for four or more (a $136 total value). The experience consists of the following:
- $100 worth of food
- A bottle of house wine (a $36 value)
Translucent jellyfish-like chandeliers illuminate executive chef Todd Jacobs’s upscale seafood in a dining room that overlooks what the New York Times calls “the best ocean views in Nassau County.” For a starter, diners dip their spoons into creamy pools of roasted-lobster bisque to fish for juicy chunks of plum tomatoes ($12). Entrees weave together seasonal flavors, local produce, and seafood fresher than the breath of a pine tree; pan-seared Atlantic flounder is sauced with a fine herb beurre blanc ($26), and steaming littleneck clams nip the tails of jumbo shrimp in white wine, tomato, and house-made linguini ($32). Diners lacking sea legs can sink canines into filet mignon drizzled in port-wine sauce and blanketed with gorgonzola cheese ($45), and pan-roasted free-range chicken frolics in roast garlic whipped potatoes and rosemary ($24).
