Chefs' ovens burn much hotter than conventional ovens, allowing them to quickly roast meats and melt glacier chunks into gourmet ice water. Enjoy professional cooking with today’s Groupon: for $20, you get $40 worth of sushi, southwestern, or Italian fare and wine at one of the following FMI Restaurant Group establishments: Funky Monkey Wine Company with locations on North Mills Avenue and International Drive, Prickly Pear, or Nick's Italian Kitchen. FMI Restaurant Group's medley of eateries pleases palates with extensive wine selections and international flavors.

At Funky Monkey Wine Company, sommelier Eddie Nickell uncorks more than 120 bottles of wine to augment hand-molded rolls from each location's sushi menu. Chefs sculpt specialty Funky Monkey rolls with spicy tuna, avocado, and cream cheese ($10–$12). Diners can also fill empty stomachs or parking spots with a rotating list of entrees, such as the cinnamon beef short ribs featured on the International Drive menu ($22) or the panko-crusted yellowtail snapper with veggies detailed on the North Mills Avenue menu ($25).

Armed with ample supplies of spices and chilis, the cooks at Prickly Pear curb cravings for southwestern fare with a menu of barbecue baby back ribs ($19) and elk burgers with pickled peppers ($15). Two towering palms stand guard over the entryway and sidewalk patio, and cactus décor knits diners woolen sweaters from the walls. On Saturday night, guests can sync bites with live entertainment from Danielle Hunter and the Prickly Pear Dancers.

Drawing from Old World influences and a cache of locally sourced ingredients, Nick's Italian Kitchen dazzles palates with a menu of handcrafted pasta, such as the tortellini stuffed with butternut squash ($14). Chef Nicholas Olivieri references his grandmother's recipe for meatballs, which help to anchor down flimsy spaghetti ($14).

Funky Monkey Bistro and Bar

Funky Monkey Bistro and Bar knows how to fill a glass, but it's the way they fill plates that has earned them a dedicated following. Funky Monkey's menu is ever-changing and they pride themselves in preparing fresh products daily. Start with something creative from the Beginnings section of the menu, then work down to the Main Plates, Hand Cut Steaks, Fresh Seafood, Tuna, and Dumplings sections, along with an extensive wine list. Funky Monkey shows are over the top fun with the entertainment starting at 8pm on weekends.

"Great dinner"
Amazingly good sushi for a place with a mainly western menu. All dishes were good, the martini was ice cold, wines by the glass are good and reasonable. All dishes were expertly prepared and more than adequate in size. Service was prompt but not overbearing. Need I say more?

"NYE disappointment"
We booked our party to ring in the New Year at Funky Monkeys. Bar service was great, food was plentiful and the fresh pasta dishes were divine. The drag show was very loud and couldn't hear each other talking when the performance was on. The cost was expensive and think we could have h... Read More

"Second visit"
This is our second visit, the first was 3-4 years ago. This is a fun place anyway you look at it. The show is very good and not as hard core of a drag show as you would find at some other places. The food gets mixed reviews. We had a variety of appetizers and three out of four were outsta... Read More
