Prix fixe dining is an exercise in good taste, which is why edible cubic zirconium and squeezable cheese rarely make the menu. Eat elegantly with today's Groupon: for $89, you get a three-course seasonal tasting menu for two at Desmond's (up to a $186 value).

Desmond's executive chef David Hart, who honed his culinary craft while cooking for London's royal family, sates sophisticated palates with an elegant tasting menu of cross-continental cuisine procured from local, organic ingredients. The tasting experience for two takes place in Desmond's dining room, a former federal bank building replete with a stately bar, vaulted ceilings, white-linen tablecloths, and ghostly piles of legal tender. Meals commence with a champagne toast (a $9 value each) and starters of chilled corn soup (a $14 value) or shaved fennel, pear, and parmesan salad (a $13 value). For the main course, diners may choose between delicate fillets of signature dover sole, grilled lovingly with shrimp butter and embraced by charred lemon (a $52 value), or flavorful lamb drizzled with mint-and-chili jelly (a $33 value). Each guest tucks into a choice of six side dishes, such as decadent duvets of truffle mac ‘n’ cheese or silken sheets of sautéed baby spinach (a $9 value each). End meals on sprite notes with the summer lemon pudding (a $9 value each), swirled with hints of sugar to dissuade embarrassing mouth puckers.
