Being properly prepared saves students from flunking exams, pianists from plucking erroneous notes in public, and steaks from ending up as dog Frisbees. Chomp down on carefully crafted dishes with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of fine dining at Level 2, an upscale upstairs eatery in the heart of downtown.
After ascending a steel stairway through rock walls, diners are ushered to an intimate, white-linen-decked table or private booth and handed a menu of elegant, gourmet fare. Preheat your appetite with a finely crafted appetizer such as calamari fries with honey-chipotle sauce ($11), and then make a bold excursion into the meaty flavors of a cowboy steak (a 16-ounce rib chop with tempura onion rings and garlic mashed potatoes, $29) or a Kobe beef burger with fresh mozzarella and homemade fries ($10). The tri-colored tortellini in an order of Rasta pasta (a Caribbean-infused dish with andouille sausage, mushrooms, and chicken, $13) satisfy carb cravings and can be used as pillows for fingers tired from cutting out letters for ransom notes.
While your stomach is soaking up the kitchen's creations, your visual cortex will feast on Level 2's industrial, upscale décor delights. The suspended lighting graces your plate with soft, billowing-fabric-filtered glows, enhancing the mood for your special dining companion or, if you're flying solo, your own reflection in a handheld mirror. After dinner there's no need to hail a cab or take a rocket to get to the night scene, simply descend into Heaven or slide into one of Much Bar's comfortably close barstools.
