Dining etiquette requires one to use a soupspoon for gazpacho, a dessert spoon for crème brûlée, and chopsticks for fitting in when dining with a walrus. Learn to harness an arsenal of utensils with today’s Groupon to Cacharel Restaurant & Grand Ballroom in Arlington. Choose between two options:

Nestled on the ninth floor of the WBAP Tower, Cacharel Restaurant pairs Texan and French cuisine with panoramic views. Unlike a Caribbean cruise, the prix fixe dinner menu ($48.50 per person) whisks diners on a three-course eating excursion without the need to pack a suitcase full of steak-themed Hawaiian shirts. Sojourns start with an appetizer, such as sautéed jumbo sea scallops surfing a river of cauliflower purée, before forks weigh anchor in a main course such as swordfish piccata in lemon-butter sauce. Desserts such as chocolate soufflé or warm Texas peaches with ice cream greet mouths sweetly at their final destination. Alternatively, the Beef Eaters menu sates hunger with a la carte comestibles, such as a 13-ounce Kobe New York strip steak ($69.50) that claims to be friends with Woody Allen’s flatware. For lunch, chefs can sautée a fillet of Norwegian salmon atop a champagne-dill sauce ($15) or dress a grilled vegetable plate in roasted red-bell-pepper sauce ($12).
Cacharel Restaurant & Grand Ballroom
From the ninth floor, sweeping views of Arlington’s entertainment district fill the windows at Cacharel Restaurant. Cacharel’s menus list an array of steaks and seafood entrees to accompany the panorama, which includes views of Rangers Ballpark, Cowboys Stadium, and acres of trees planted between them so the buildings would stop fighting. Pale earth tones and plenty of natural light decorate the space as the staff exits the kitchen bearing swordfish piccata and center-cut pork rib chops. At the other end of the restaurant, views of serpentine roller coasters glimmer in the twilight as the staff tempts diners with homemade desserts. The Grand Ballroom portrays the same picturesque scenery through its seventh-floor windows and can be rented for weddings, meetings, and other gerunds.
