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 American fare at Copper Dine and Drink in East Lansing.
Copper Dine and Drink’s resident culinary wizards conjure a menu of classic American dishes infused with imaginative contemporary twists. Call appetites to attention with starters such as lightly battered calamari nestled alongside a sweet and spicy Coca Cola–chili dipping sauce ($9), or gargle a cup of Copper chili to mine its robust beef-tenderloin tips from a river of cheddar and scallions ($4). Smoked-brisket sandwiches ($10) pair their namesake component with white cheddar and an herb focaccia bun, and the brie-and-turkey flat ($11) basks on garlic-olive-oil-brushed flatbread. Procure forkfuls of ahi tuna rubbed with Moroccan spices ($27) or spear squash ravioli as it attempts to escape into a bowl of sage and fried leeks ($15).
Copper envelops its guests in contemporary comfort and bathes them in natural light streaming from large windows. Diners can tuck into Sunday brunch items, including the Copper signature omelet stuffed with veggies and creamy brie ($9), as they relax by the fireplace or square dance along the obsidian-stained wood floor.

Being a public restaurant on a private golf course has its perks when it comes to landscaping. Situated on the rolling greens of Walnut Hills, Copper Dine and Drink treats guests to picturesque views from the patio as well as classic American cuisine. Families, couples, or golfers retiring from the links can settle in for entrees such as grilled salmon with vegetables and lemon butter or spicy chicken cavatappi pasta with andouille sausage, Cajun chicken, peppers, and onion.
