The monopoly tycoons of the 19th century traditionally did their wheeling and dealing at fine-dining establishments, cleverly concealing the fact that they still lived with their parents. Live the dream with today’s Groupon: for $25, you get $50 worth of gourmet steak house fare and sushi at Baker’s 360.
The unfolding floral notes of an inspired wine selection pair delicately with the tender, dry-aged Angus steaks and ocean-fresh sushi rolls that speckle the spacious dining room’s tables. After perusing the dinner menu, romancing couples can indulge in the thick-cut côte de boeuf for two ($55), whose creamy roquefort sauce reflects the starry colors of the night sky—visible from all corners of the 15th floor restaurant’s panoramic seating area. Other signature entrees include a miso-marinated black cod ($29) and a duck breast ($31) retrieved from a vintage 8-bit video game and seared in the restaurant’s kitchen. A sushi menu hosts a multitude of maritime delicacies spread across various seafaring rice rafts, from classic white tuna sashimi ($5) to Volcano rolls exploding with spicy king crab and lava sauce ($14).
The restaurant’s extensive wine list and brazen cocktail menu have helped garner its reputation for vibrant nightlife. A décor featuring sheer-covered artwork, water walls, and plush lounge furniture dares patrons to outclass it with their own stylish outfits, in accordance with the dress code; men must wear a collared shirt and hats, sneakers, flip-flops, and large jewelry are prohibited.
