Unlike visiting a new neighbor’s house, visiting a steak house comes with a virtual guarantee that you’ll be welcomed, fed, and trusted with knives. Make a hunger-halting house call with today’s Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of steaks and seafood at Jimmy V’s Steakhouse & Tavern in Cary.
The savvy chefs at Jimmy V’s infuse the flare of a New York steak house into succulent cuts of certified Angus beef and fresh seafood to populate an extensive menu of hearty entrees and tasty bar snacks. The charred rare beef appetizer marries tender chunks of blushing beef with grilled and chilled asparagus and, like an ancient Roman wedding, ordains them with a sprinkling of grainy mustard vinaigrette ($12). Forks and knives battle each other for first dibs of the veal osso bucco and its risotto Milanese side ($28), while colossal pan-seared or blackened sea scallops construct an edible dam within a river of lemony brown butter ($23). A slew of midwestern steaks including 15-ounce dry-aged rib eyes ($43) and 6-ounce bacon-wrapped filet mignons ($29) demonstrate down-to-earth values with the table manners of a cub scout. Though not included in this Groupon, Jimmy V’s posits an array of wines & spirits for parched palates of all types.
Jimmy V’s spacious dinning room welcomes diners with sturdy tables cloaked in white cloths, fine tableware, and elegant chandeliers not hung upside down. The luminescence of beaming TVs attracts the ocular orbs of bar dwellers, and an outdoor patio lures mouths and their meaty entrees to fresh air.
