Stomachs only growl when they're hungry or preparing to bite the hand that keeps tickling them. Tame the beast within with today’s Groupon: for $20, you get $40 worth of Italian fare at Galleria Ristorante in Westbury.
Trained at the La Varenne culinary school in Paris, Galleria Ristorante’s owner and executive chef, James Mollitor, whips up platefuls of authentic Italian fare served atop snow-white linens in an elegant dining room replete with dark wood furniture. Entice palates with a complimentary amuse bouche to prep for the culinary voyage ahead. Landlubbing tummies sprout sea legs with the suprema ai frutti di mare’s assortment of clams, fresh fish, calamari, shrimp, and diving-bell-clad mussels adrift in an ocean of linguine ($34.50). The pollo quattro funghi ($21.50) gilds chicken in a sauce composed of shiitake, porcini, oyster, and butter mushrooms, and the 14-ounce serving of broiled filet mignon ($34) arrives perfectly prepared to each guest’s desires, be it well done, rare, or dipped in molten gold. On Friday and Saturday nights, a dexterous pianist manually extracts tunes from a baby grand piano as patrons serenade sweet teeth with a dulcet treat, such as a ricotta cheesecake ($7) washed down with sips of a complimentary postprandial digestif.
