Tables at fine-dining restaurants are known for their fancy white-linen outfits, unlike tables in home kitchens, which are notorious for going nude. Dress up for a nice meal with today’s Groupon: for $25, you get $50 worth of upscale dinner fare at Opus One.
The culinary gurus at Opus One sate theatergoing appetites with a menu of seafood and steak, served within a cream-colored, multistory dining area. Spice-crusted jumbo sea scallops served with udon noodle salad and red curry sauce ($28) vie for taste buds' attention and title of "Underwater Arm-Wrestling Champ" alongside the locally sourced panko-crusted fillet of Michigan walleye, smothered in tomato basil sauce ($28). The 12-ounce char-grilled Angus beef rib eye bathes in bordelaise and creamy horseradish sauce ($35) and the vegetarian-pleasing free-form lasagna's layers of mediterranean vegetable ragout and herbed ricotta compel mouths to sing praise ($21). Opus One's comprehensive wine list hosts more than 100 wines from around the world, such as a 2008 syrah from Spain that preps tongues for oral recitals of The Grapes of Wrath.
