Surf 'n' turf is the most successful main-course pairing, unlike past epicurean mergings of trophic and tundra or sardines and anything. Dine on a delectable duo with today's Groupon: for $25, you get $50 worth of upscale steakhouse fare at Filet & Fin, located in the historic Moses building just three blocks west of historic downtown.
Filet & Fin's French-trained Chef Daniel fuses California classics and fashionable French and Italian fare with New Orleans nuances and southern charm. The ever-changing dinner menu encourages diners to dive in mandible first with seafood starters such as the roasted oysters Daniel, clad in sumptuous spinach and red pepper ($11) or a half-dozen escargot, improving their backstroke with laps in a garlicky pool of butter and wine ($7/half dozen, $12/dozen).
After tongue buds are sufficiently teased with light bites and mildly mean-spirited taunts, patrons can move onto more momentous dishes, such as the Buckhead center-cut filet mignon, infused with truffle and olive oils ($24). Fishmongering mouths, meanwhile, can hook, line, and sinker the tangerine and key-lime black grouper ($19) or jumbo lump Maryland crab cake, served with dijon-mustard cream ($21). Signature artisan wines and other libations from the full bar keep throats properly coated for slices of deep-dish apple pie ($6).
