Scientific studies show that enjoying an elegant meal typically demands tongues, taste buds, and the ability to sit still for more than four minutes at a time. Calm an over-anxious appetite with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of fine dining and drinks at John & Tony's Restaurant in West Chicago.
At John & Tony’s, contemporary décor and live weekend jazz performances set the scene for a refined casual feast, orchestrated by acclaimed chef Carlos Hernandez. The dinner menu digs in with tempting tapas tastes such as bacon-wrapped dates simmering in a sweet red-pepper butter sauce ($6.95), or garlic crustinis topped with goat cheese, baked in a tomato-basil sauce ($7.95). Steaks usher in the main meal event with meaty fillets crusted with horseradish ($29.95), peppercorns ($28.95), or parmesan ($29.95), and the ahi tuna steak ($24.95) sates seafood hunger built-up while babysitting the neighbor's aquarium, thanks to flavorful flair in the form of sesame seeds, wasabi, and balsamic glaze.
More than 40 varietals of virile vino, carefully chosen for their flavor and entertaining anecdotes about Dean Martin, decorate the beverage menu, allowing customers to pair a merlot with their meat, a chardonnay with their seafood, and prosecco with more prosecco. Daily bar specials, regular special event nights, and an all-the-time welcoming atmosphere give customers an excuse to visit every day of the week, and give home-based ovens an excuse to finally divorce the stove.
