What You'll Get
Italians were not only the first people to put tomatoes in cuisine, but also the first to take photographs of themselves pretending to hold up the Leaning Tower of Pisa. Delight in their inventiveness with today's Groupon: for $20, you get $40 worth of Italian fare and drinks during dinner at Grimaldi's Luna Park in East Syracuse.
Grimaldi's chefs draw upon the restaurant's more than 50 years in business to fill bellies with a menu of homemade meat, seafood, and pasta dishes. Diners anchor their fork tines in the hearty heft of a 10-ounce filet mignon, which is festooned in grilled portabella mushrooms like a chef at a job interview ($27.95). Chicken parmigiana is cloaked regally in marinara sauce, which the restaurant's experienced culinarians make daily ($14.95). Salmon Oscar Florentine arrives at tables with a norwegian salmon basking on a crest of lump crabmeat and sautéed spinach ($24.95), and the homemade lasagna brims with tributaries of warm cheese ($15.95). Cap off bites with a glass of red- or white-grape ambrosia ($5.50–$9) from Grimaldi's wine list to fuel postdinner joviality without having to pull the futon out for Bacchus.
