Dining by the water allows for sea contemplation, a sense of inner serenity, and hostile staring contests with flying Dutchmen. Enjoy the view with today's Groupon: for $20, you get $40 worth of gourmet fare at Battery Gardens restaurant. Tucked away in the southern most corner of Battery Park, Battery Gardens delicately dishes out its refined cuisine behind a panoramic view of New York Harbor. Dive into its signature Chilean sea bass (swimming in jasmine rice, baby shiitake mushrooms, sugar snap peas, and miso; $34), or celebrate Italian Halloween with the pumpkin risotto (with blue cheese, hazelnuts, english peas, and a port-wine reduction; $22). Sweet teeth will scream over desserts such as the teacup peach cobbler (angel-food cake, limed whipped cream, and peach compote) as well as a spectrum of seasonal sorbets and ice creams. Battery Gardens' elegant cream-colored seating and candelabras polish the fine-dining experience, while its spacious windows expose the Statue of Liberty's nightly bouts of jet skiing. Midmornings are brightened with brunch, and a full list of fare can be found on the restaurant's website.
