What You'll Get
You're probably thinking, "That sounds great, but I've never bought a car or a computer without first reading the Wikipedia definitions for car and computer—I'm not about to buy a Groupon either without a briefing." Well neither would we, and since this is everyone's first Groupon, allow us to briefly explain how it works.
How Groupon Works
Groupon is a combination of the words group and coupon. Each day, we offer an unbeatable deal on the best of Indianapolis: restaurants, spas, sporting events, theater, and more. By promising businesses a minimum number of customers, we get discounts you won't find anywhere else. We call it "collective buying power"!
If you want to get the deal, just click BUY before the offer ends at midnight. If the minimum number of people (20 for today's deal) sign up by the end of the day, you'll get a printable gift certificate in your inbox the next morning that you can use whenever you want (well, at least until the deal expires—today's expires in a year). If not enough people join, no one gets the deal (and you won't be charged), so invite your friends to make sure you get the discount!
It's nice to wake up to something new every day. Some people get their daily fix from desk calendars with a cute puppy and a funny caption every morning. Groupon is like a desk calendar, except the puppy is an unbeatable discount and the funny caption is a profound reflection on the flowers and needles growing from life's cactus. We selflessly share our deep insights, hoping that you will join our mob of consumers, thus strengthening our collective buying power and commanding even better deals.
Don't let grocery-store cheese damage palate-plate relations; surrender your cheese-eating heart to transcendent emotional states with today's Groupon. You get $50 worth of succulent dinners, serious cocktails, and cultivated world cheeses from Euphoria for $25. Located on the top floor of Buggs Temple, Euphoria's elegant dining room combines rich woods and exposed ceiling beams with crisp white linens and clean lines for a cozy yet sophisticated atmosphere; you'll be compelled to see the stunning views of the city at night. Bring your gorgeous gourmand and hungry handyman to prove your fidelity to the finer things in life.
Euphoria's mouthwatering menu features fresh, seasonal ingredients perfectly paired with creative seasonings and accents such as smoked paprika remoulade and maple-ginger vinaigrette. Feed your foodie fire with buttery carrot soup served with gorgonzola polenta croutons and mint and lemon herb oil ($9) and crispy sweet breads with butternut squash risotto and sage brown butter ($14).
Perfectly prepared entrees turn out so tender they acquiesce to your fork's demands without costing you valuable sawing and stabbing energy. Pan-seared cobia melts around your fork with golden beets, brussel sprouts, wild rice, and bacon sherry vinaigrette ($24). Let the grilled beef tenderloin with cranberries, farro, rapini, and shallots ($35) or the chicken pot-au-fue with fingerling potatoes, radish, bok choy, and horseradish creme ($20) whirl your tastebuds around a Baroque ballroom of flavor, like that scene in Beauty and The Beast but without your furniture watching you.
The artistic and robust flavors of Euphoria's dishes are reflected in its carefully cultivated cheese list; build your own cheese plate for a tasty appetizer or decadent dessert. Cheeses range from $2–$3.25 each, and most experts recommend trying a variety of textures or diverse national and animal origins to keep your tongue in tip-top shape; try a nutty, raw sheep cheese from Spain, a gooey yet sophisticated French cow cheese, a Bavarian blue cow from actual blue cows, and a stinky, assertive goat from Indiana. Euphoria's informative menu suggests wine pairings for each cheese, and its friendly, knowledgeable servers will help you find the perfect wine or spirit to pair with your custom spread.
- The presentation was like a surrealist masterpiece. The tartare and its accoutrements arrived on a squarish white plate, the components unfolding like a chef’s knife set. First came the mound of bright red tartare, splayed like Dali’s dripping clock, and topped with a miniature egg, sunny side up. Long, thin strips of capers, onions, tomatoes, mustard and sliced gherkins followed; a mound of greasy garlic chips punctuated the plate. The meat was fresh and clean, as were the simple but perfect counterparts. – Jennifer Litz, NUVO
- Perched on the third floor of the historic Buggs Temple, a former church, on the downtown canal, Euphoria offers terrific views of downtown Indianapolis. The surroundings---white tablecloths and high ceilings---set the stage for a fine dinner. – Gayot
