Topping the food chain is a tremendous achievement, which is why humans triumphantly plant flag-like toothpicks in burgers and belt the national anthem at their steaks before devouring them. Enjoy life at the top with today's Groupon: for $20, you get $40 worth of steak-house fare and drinks during dinner at Christopher's Prime Steak House & Grill in Salt Lake City and Christopher's Steak House & Grill in Draper.
Christopher's chefs draw upon an array of fresh seafood flown in daily from locations across the world, organic, local produce, and USDA Prime cuts of beef. Epicureans carve heaping plates from corn-fed beef aged for 21 days, but may also choose Snake River Farms American Wagyu beef at the Salt Lake City restaurant or USDA Choice Certified Angus beef in Draper. The Salt Lake City menu draws back curtains from mushrooms stuffed with crab and andouille ($12), which wrestle for fork affections before a main act of filet mignon medallions waltz with shrimp scampi ($32).
On the Draper menu, chefs pave stomachscapes with beginning bites of spicy plum-glazed tempura chicken and asian cucumber salad ($8), and lure out potato-crusted Alaskan halibut using pancetta-scallion butter, wild rice, and spinach ($28.49). Diners may scale the seasoned peaks of a portobella-and-blue-cheese-topped filet mignon ($38.49–$44) at either locale before going on to pen meat-inspired folk songs.
High-temperature broilers sear meat to completion at temperatures of more than 1,500 degrees. Guests feast on an outdoor patio or sample from an extensive wine-and-spirit list that allows spirited jubilation without having to sit through a satyr's vacation slideshow.
Christopher's Prime Steak House and Grill
At Christopher's Prime Steak House and Grill, every piece of prime, corn-fed beef ages for 21 days before it's ready to be served. Chefs then hand-cut beef into kansas city sirloin, new york strip, or "cowboy" chops before locking in the painstakingly cured flavor with 1,500-degree broilers. In addition to steak, the menu also boasts seafood flown in daily from around the world. Locally sourced produce adds organic texture to every meal and linen tablecloths add softness to obstinately hard tabletops. The Zagat-rated "excellent" eatery can seat diners on the outdoor patio or in the dining room, which can fit up to 300 guests for wedding receptions, banquets, or corporate events.
