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. Dine under a cloak of deliciousness with today's Groupon: for $20, you get $40 worth of upscale Mediterranean and American cuisine at Citrus City Grille, located in Corona.
Elegant interiors bathe diners in a relaxing, luxurious atmosphere at Citrus City Grille, setting the stage for its upscale Mediterranean and American fare crafted from fresh ingredients. Stop by for sweets and savories during Sunday champagne brunch, or scan the lunch and dinner menus to find sharable starters such as the saganaki ($12) and the artisan cheese platter ($16). Wistful retired landscapers can nostalgically rake the leaves of the spinach salad, which comes topped with pecans, apples, gorgonzola, and honey-dijon vinaigrette ($8). Or, entrust an adventurous appetite to house specialties such as the vanilla-glazed Chilean sea bass, adorned with citrus lemongrass and asparagus risotto ($32). If settling in the elegant indoor or outdoor dining rooms, guests can feel free to hail a roaming violinist and accordionist to perform romantic music or sing G-rated sea shanties. Meanwhile, the posh lounge area presents ample space to tip back a glass from Citrus's cache of cocktails or to peruse the wine list's international and California vintages.
