Spaghetti, like a hammerhead shark, is rigid and boring until it’s submerged in water, at which point it quickly springs to life and develops a taste for swimmers. Celebrate this predatory noodle from the safety of dry land with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of Italian-inspired fare at New Albany Links Restaurant and Grill in New Albany.
From an elegant perch in the clubhouse, diners at New Albany Links Restaurant and Grill sup on a menu of classic Italian entrees as they survey the adrenaline-pumping action on the course's 18th green. Seafood enthusiasts can cast a wide net over multiple courses starting with flaky, pan-seared crab cakes with aioli ($7.99), followed by a bowl brimming with angel-hair pasta, fresh basil, shrimp seared in extra-virgin olive oil, and morally upstanding sun-dried tomatoes ($7.99–$14.99). A twice-baked lasagna offers up layers of meat sauce, ricotta, provolone, and romano cheese for toothsome excavation ($7.99–$11.99), and multi-taskers will enjoy the way the chicken marsala mingles pan-seared chicken breast, sautéed mushrooms, and marsala wine into one decadent dish ($7.49–$12.99).
Vaulted ceilings and large sandstone fireplaces regulate heat in the dining room during intimate rainy-day repasts, and bright windows afford panoramic views of the game-play on the greens below. The restaurant also offers an ample selection of cocktails, draft beers, and premium and domestic brews, though today's Groupon is not good for alcohol, and vice versa, as evidenced by the time it woke up in a strange bathtub folded into inappropriate shapes.
