To tuxedoed people, velvet ropes are ordinary white picket fences and champagne fountains are lawn sprinklers. Kick down the fence and drink from the sprinkler with today's Groupon: for $20, you get $40 worth of modern American small plates and cocktails at Eleven inside the Reunion Resort and Club. Eleven only accepts credit cards.
Eleven is an indoor-outdoor rooftop lounge and pool seated atop the eleventh floor of the Reunion Grande, serving small plates, cocktails, and stunning views. Snack on a grilled romaine salad topped with roasted-garlic-parmesan flan ($9) or crispy vegetable spring rolls with sweet chili sauce ($8) before filling a stomach suitcase with the surf & turf, a delectable duet of lobster ravioli and braised short ribs ($34), or the pan-seared sea scallops with goat cheese polenta, served with a zigzag of caramelized onions across its chest like an edible Charlie Brown ($27).
Eleven used to be reserved for Reunion Resort guests, but as of this month everyone can share scrumptious small plates and stargazing regardless of their sleeping arrangements. The glow of a roaring fire mimics twinkling stars overhead, creating a relaxed and romantic atmosphere for astronomy lessons and zeppelin spotting.
