Gourmet restaurants are ideal environs for first dates, anniversary dates, and rapid costume-switching double-booked dates. Win all their hearts with today's Groupon at Common Plea Restaurant on Ross Street. Choose between the following options:

  • For $30, you get $60 worth of gourmet Italian-American dinner fare and fine wines. Reservations are required for dinner.
  • For $15, you get $35 worth of fine-dining appetizers and drinks during dinner. This option excludes to-go bottles of wine.

Visitors to Common Plea find their culinary desires sated by elegant fare in a quiet, conversation-friendly setting. At tables swathed in starched whites, guests can sample delectable appetizers off the dinner menu, such as the clams maison with grilled lemon, which glide across palates like a citrusy hovercraft ($8), and prosciutto-wrapped scallops that tempt mouths through a seductive veil of brandy gastrique ($13). More urgent stomach pangs with reservations in hand can take the fast track towards entrees, including Roman-American regalements such as the house-made cheese ravioli crowned with tangy roasted-garlic aioli, parmesan and bomboloni ($19), or the house-made gnocchi, where pine-nut-adorned shrimp and roasted tomatoes debate neoclassicism in a bath of herbed garlic butter ($20). Fishy dishes, including the Humbolt Fog crusted fillet, which sails a pappardelle raft over an ocean of porcini mushroom demi cream ($38), and the asparagus-paired rainbow trout crab almondine ($25) round out the school of seafaring succulence.

Coworkers bored with the traditional weepy hour can assay Common Plea's sophisticated version of happy hour by upending a few bottles of fruity libations off the wine list, such as Sonoma Hill merlot ($34), Charles Krug chardonnay ($48), or Tamas Estate pinot grigio ($28). Exquisite chandeliers cast light upon the eatery’s green-carpeted and wood-paneled interior, the walls of which are adorned with old-fashioned portraits who gaze austerely at patrons and demand the password for Gryffindor.
