What You'll Get
Like attaching a fake mustache to a Halloween mask or cleverly changing your name from Obi-Wan Kenobi to Ben Kenobi, adding a new ingredient to something familiar can render it delightfully unrecognizable. Enjoy inventive eats with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of seafood, steak, and upscale American fare at Eighty Ates. Choose between the Eighty Ates Bar & Grille location in Dudley or the Bistro Eighty Ates location in Webster.
Head chefs Will Sims and Todd Young imagine international spins on classic American cuisine, crafting char-grilled burgers, an imaginative seafood selection, succulent steaks, and pastas that populate distinctive menus at each location. Diners who peruse the Eighty Ates Bar & Grille menu inside a modern, mood-lit ambiance can opt for starters such as philly cheesesteak spring rolls, which ensconce the classic sandwich’s cargo within a wonton before the morsels are fried to a light golden-brown and dished with jalapeño-cheese dipping sauce ($9.88). More than a dozen seafood selections fill mouths with maritime flavor akin to a beat-boxing conch shell, and chefs fire-grill the 12-ounce Black & Bleu Angus rib eye to blacken it before melting blue cheese and sprinkling frizzled onions over the top ($18.88). Sandwiches range from panini to the pepper-steak burger—8 ounces of ground char-grilled sirloin beef, mixed with sweet and hot peppers alike, then topped with pepper jack, lettuce, tomato, and chipotle ranch atop a kaiser roll ($10.88).
Bistro Eighty Ate’s warm, rustic tones welcome diners in to peruse a menu of its own. The blackened chicken and chipotle alfredo is temporarily encased in an asiago-filled snow globe before caroling out to tables ($16.88), and the seafood menu includes haddock served eight ways, including a fish ‘n’ chips modality battered in the chef’s special pitch-black IPA-beer batter ($14.88). Chefs stuff twin porterhouse lamb chops with feta before char-grilling the pair, outfitting them in matching shiraz demi-glace onesies and nestling them atop oregano-infused risotto ($20.88).
