What You'll Get
Archestratus, the first food critic, praised Italian cuisine's use of "top-quality and seasonal" ingredients and its "fair-to-middling" ability to tranquilize out-of-control mayors. Today's Groupon similarly stuns, and rightfully so: for $25, you get $50 worth of Italian fare and drinks at Lorenzo's Restaurant, Bar & Cabaret, located in The Hilton Garden Inn Staten Island.
Lorenzo’s pasta personnel dish out fresh Italian-inspired eats in an elegant, inviting interior. Pop in for dinner to dive into starters such as the french onion soup ($6) or the zuppa di mussels, which swims with sautéed shallots and pinot-grigio roasted tomato broth ($14). The gnocchi bolognese ($16), unlike decorating windows with childhood shower curtains, is a fine way to exhibit good taste to a new neighbor, as is the porcini-mushroom-bedecked veal chop, which comes sidekicked with parmigiano-crusted steak fries ($35). Sweet melodies from live musicians often complement the harmonious flavors at Lorenzo’s; check out the calendar to stay abreast of the restaurant’s ongoing events.
