Most modern cuisine is a continuation of classic dishes, just as a computer is a slightly modified typewriter and a washing machine is a river in a box. Revel in palatable progress with today's Groupon: for $20, you get $40 worth of fine dining and drinks at Graham's Restaurant, located inside the Kensington Court Ann Arbor Hotel.
Graham's Restaurant's kitchen craftsmen stuff breakfast, lunch and dinner menus with filling American fare. Nimble fork guides help marinated bites of grilled steak scale the gorgonzola beef-tip salad's cheese-speckled forest canopy of greens ($7.95) to reach diners' waiting mouths. Alternately, nibble on small plates such as escargot smothered in creamy brie ($4.95), smoked salmon drenched in a river of caper-dotted crème fraîche ($5.95), or an unadorned saucer. Lunchtime invites a parade of hamburgers and sandwiches ($5.25–$8.95) to traipse across willing plates, and early birds can munch a hollandaise-soaked eggs benedict ($9.95) for breakfast. After you eat, retire to the nearby lounge to sip beer, wine, and cocktails as an array of TVs broadcast sports events and montages of suspenseful moments from Great Chefs of the World.
Located within Kensington Court Ann Arbor, Graham's Restaurant draws inspiration from American and global cuisine in equal measure. Its chefs might be spotted sprinkling Mediterranean herbs on meatloaf or whipping up a dip for yucca fries from Peruvian aji peppers. The lunch menu strikes a balance between casual and upscale with cubano sandwiches and spinach-duck breast salads, and so do the eggs benedict and cinnamon french toast at brunch. Prime rib specials are available on weekend nights, and house-made desserts end meals on a high note before the busboy removes plates with a vaudeville hook.
