What You'll Get
With the advent of cell phones, today's fathers and sons rarely spend quality time together. But consider what the pair can accomplish when working side by side. Ken Griffey Sr. helped Ken Griffey Jr. become one of baseball's greatest sluggers by rewarding him with a 12-egg smoothie for every three thousand practice swings he took. Carrot Top performed ventriloquist gigs using his son as a puppet. And Antonio and Mario Cerra joined culinary forces to create an Italian restaurant that serves mouthwatering dishes. That restaurant, Padre Figlio, happens to be offering a great deal on Groupon today.
Today's Groupon gets you $35 worth of tasty food and drink at Padre Figlio for only $15. The classy father-and-son-owned Italian eatery is located near Grand Central at 310 E. 44th St. Billed as an "Italian Steakhouse," Padre Figlio doesn't shy away from meat.
Famous Padre Figlio dishes feature a variety of cuts of Piedmontese beef, a premium brand of Italian grass-fed beef known for being extra lean and flavorful. If you have more adventurous meat cravings, order big-game alternatives off the exotic meats section; the rack of Canadian wild boar in a limoncello reduction and the filet mignon of ostrich are savory treats. But Padre Figlio has more than delicious land meats. They were given the Choice Award by OpenTable diners for being one of the best seafood restaurants in the city. Try the delicious Chilean sea bass or the Norwegian king wild salmon.
Padre Figlio’s warm and inviting atmosphere will make you feel like you're dining in the house of hunting enthusiasts from a large Italian family. Stop by for traditional steakhouse fare made with an Italian twist. Get your Groupon!

About Padre Figlio
Father-and-son restaurateur team Antonio and Mario Cerra pride themselves on Padre Figlio’s masterful presentation of Italian cuisine, which spotlights fine seafood and USDA Prime meats flavored with roasted garlic, rosemary, oregano, and extra-virgin olive oil. The upscale steak house cultivates its elegant atmosphere through walls decked in warm vermillion and brilliant gold leaf, tucked-away booths, and dining areas bordered by velvet drapery. Cloth-clad tables frame plates laden with imported buffalo mozzarella, Chilean sea bass, tender porterhouse steaks, and plump gnocchi dumplings swimming in tomato-basil sauce, all paired with cocktails and martinis from the bar or selections from an extensive wine list. Intimate dining experiences unfold in three private rooms with distinct visual accents, from the garden balcony's sweeping views of 44th Street to the velvet room's up-close vistas of textile weaves.
The Cerra family and friends serve their Italian steak-house fare backed with plenty of critical acclaim, earning a coveted Zagat rating and winning over New York Magazine with the restaurant's traditional sicilian pastas, tender cuts of steak, and creamy gelato.
