Modern cuisine infuses classic staples with innovative twists to create thrilling new flavors in the same way that playing hopscotch on a trampoline creates a thrilling new game. Skip to the beat of a new menu with today's Groupon: for $20, you get $40 worth of contemporary continental cuisine and one dessert (an $8 value) at Giorgio's of Gramercy (a $48 total value).
The chefs at Giorgio's of Gramercy gingerly craft an eclectic menu of contemporary American cuisine seasoned with French and Italian influences. The rack of lamb ($28) shrugs into a crusted coat of mustard and herbs, shepherding a flock of roasted-vegetable ratatouille through a field of apricot demi-glaze. Spice wizards stir a savory cauldron of risotto ($17), adding dashes of crabmeat, roasted tomatoes, lime zest, and aged pecorino to the potion, and orders of roasted chicken ($19) tumble amid a fragrant bouquet of lemon and garlic before sidling onto a plate alongside red-bliss potatoes and caramelized onions. Desserts such as baked alaska and s’more bread pudding end meals on a sweet chord. A prix fixe lunch provides a hearty midday repast ($24.07/person), and a prix fixe dinner menu ($35/person) allows diners to embark upon gustatory tours of the restaurant's creations with a choice of one appetizer, one entree, one dessert, and one utensil from a list of specific offerings.
Though not included with this Groupon, a wooden wine rack built into Giorgio's rouge-pained walls harvests bottles from juice boxes around the world, and crystal chandeliers rain light upon diners as they lounge within an intimate dining space festooned with gold-colored accents.
