The monopoly tycoons of the 19th century traditionally did their wheeling and dealing at exclusive restaurants, cleverly concealing the fact that they still lived with their moms. Dine in style with today's Groupon to Cullen's American Grille. Choose from the following three options:

Cullen's head chef Paul Lewis crafts a menu from meats dry-aged on-site and produce grown on nearby farms. Diners can taste the ocean without pouring sand in their coffee with freshly caught seafood such as oysters crusted in cornmeal or crab-cake bites. A seared gulf-snapper entree pairs mexican black-truffle puree and rustic chilaquiles, or the award-winning 14 oz. New York strip steak comes dressed with house-cured bacon and béarnaise. Cullen's offers a variety of healthy dishes alongside handheld eats, such as the Monte Cristo sandwich, built with homemade bread and battered and deep-fried with raspberry jam.
Dessert options include the warm apple crostada and the chocolate odyssey 2.0, which consists of two oreos that, like most copies of Homer's original Odyssey, are filled with peanut butter. Cullen's deftly balances both casual and upscale atmospheres between the dining room and the grille; both areas serve the same menu. With nut-brown walls, plush seating, and refined décor, Cullen's warm, luxurious interior sets the mood for both romantic tête-à-têtes and dining quartets.
Although Cullen's American Grille sometimes offers a discounted deal online, this Groupon still presents the best deal available.
