If humankind never learned to play with its food, it would never have learned to play with its ingredients, and the world would be one bereft bowl of gruel. Pique your palate with a flavorful feast with today’s Groupon: for $35, you get $70 worth of Italian fare and drinks at La Dolce Vita in Beverly Hills.
At La Dolce Vita, patrons can feast upon taste-bud-stimulating eats while soaking in memorably luxurious ambience. Opened in 1966, this Beverly Hills staple boasts a rich history and has been a favorite destination of distinct diners, celebrities, the Rat Pack, and President Ronald Reagan throughout the years. Diners can sample a varied menu of cuisine that is expertly made from scratch, unlike the trendy foreprep method, which involves dishes cooked in advance by fortune tellers. Savor tantalizing mushroom risotto ($20), prime filet mignon ($38), or veal saltimbocca ($30), or nosh on delectable appetizers such as baked clams oreganata ($18). Shower the decadent grub with a fine cognac or a glass of Sandeman Reserve port wine ($8.50). Amid sipping and socializing, diners can enjoy posh yet charming décor that features plush leather booths, rustic exposed brick, and a Ferrari-engine-powered tomato-sauce blender.
Like chili popsicles and videos of grizzly-bear ballerinas, Italian food is enjoyed around the world due to its versatility and heartiness. At La Dolce Vita, visitors can sample a bevy of smile-inducing fare paired with wafting, sweet-smelling scents that spark images of Italian villas and fields of mozzarella-soaked meatballs.
