Fine dining is among the most humble of culinary styles, opting for the modest adjective of "fine" instead of pizzazz-packed descriptors like "pizzazz-packed" or "phine." Enjoy out-of-this-world and down-to-earth eats with today's Groupon: for $25, you get $50 worth of food and drink at Lovell's of Lake Forest, located in Lake Forest. This Groupon is good for dine-in only, and is not valid on holidays.
Lovell's of Lake Forest is co-owned by James Lovell, the NASA astronaut best remembered as the commander of the Apollo 13 space flight, and second-best remembered for playing Tom Hanks in the 1995 film, Apollo 13. Lovell's son, Jay Lovell, as co-owner and executive chef, oversees Lovell's of Lake Forest's dinner menu of steaks, seafood, sandwiches, and more. Commence consumption sequences with the fried calamari ($14) or its briny brethren, scallops ($15), before sinking fork and fang into Lovell's of Lake Forest's slate of steaks and chops. The 8-oz. filet mignon ($31) can come bacon-wrapped with cognac-veal reduction ($33), rock-crab-accompanied with asparagus and hollandaise ($37), or in other variations, while the 14-oz. Australian rack of lamb ($36), with its goat-cheese-and-Dijon crust, finds a use for sheep outside of pulling dogsleds. Other entrees include fish and chips ($18) and seared ahi tuna ($25), with desserts such as tiramisu ($9) providing a fine finale to feasting. The restaurant also serves lunch and breakfast.
Select a thirst-quencher from the restaurant's wide variety of wines and more before taking some time to soak in the ambiance. In keeping with the ties to the Apollo space program, there is NASA memorabilia from James Lovell throughout its dining room, while a mural behind the main bar depicts the steeds of the god Apollo as he tows the sun through the sky. Pull your flight simulator up to Lovell's of Lake Forest's majestic-manor house and enjoy upscale dining with a family-friendly feel.
