What You'll Get
|_Jump to: Details||Reviews_|
You’re probably thinking, “That sounds great, but I’ve never bought a car or a computer without first reading the Wikipedia definitions for car and computer—I’m not about to buy a Groupon either without a briefing.” Well neither would we, and since this is everyone’s first Groupon, allow us to briefly explain how it works.
How Groupon Works
Groupon is a combination of the words group and coupon. Each day, we offer an unbeatable deal on the best of Los Angeles: restaurants, spas, sporting events, theater, and more. By promising businesses a minimum number of customers, we get discounts you won’t find anywhere else. We call it “collective buying power”!
If you want to get the deal, just click BUY before the offer ends at midnight. If the minimum number of people (35 for today’s deal) sign up by the end of the day, you’ll get a printable gift certificate in your inbox the next morning that you can use whenever you want (well, at least until the deal expires—today’s expires in three months). If not enough people join, no one gets the deal (and you won’t be charged), so invite your friends to make sure you get the discount!
It’s nice to wake up to something new every day. Some people get their daily fix from desk calendars with a cute puppy and a funny caption every morning. Groupon is like a desk calendar, except the puppy is an unbeatable discount and the funny caption is a profound reflection on the flowers and needles growing from life’s cactus. We selflessly share our deep insights, hoping that you will join our mob of consumers, thus strengthening our collective buying power and commanding even better deals.
Today you can sink your teeth into our first deal: for $35, you get a $70 voucher to Porterhouse Bistro, a steakhouse located on 8635 Wilshire Blvd. in Beverly Hills. Use this Groupon toward a 40-oz. Porterhouse, 20-oz. t-bone, 12-oz. rib-eye, or 10-oz. filet mignon. The menu includes non-steak food too, including:
- Pan-seared baby-rack of lamb with steamed broccoli, garlic mashed potatoes, broiled tomato with Parmesan, and pan dripping au jus
- Grilled jumbo-shrimp pastina with fresh veggies, roasted garlic, and parmesan cheese
- Pan-seared whitefish with a vegetable medley, mashed potatoes, and drizzled with truffle oil
Porterhouse makes you feel special with classy lighting and valet parking. Those who valet park may or may not be given a complimentary Porterhouse-steak-scented air freshener. Either way, you’re likely to be as satisfied with your meal as food critics and web reviewers have been.
The press is doling out superlatives for Porterhouse. ZAGAT Survey Guide referred to Porterhouse’s undiscounted menu as “one of the best steak deals in L.A.” Citysearch said Porterhouse had the best “the best french fries in Los Angeles.” Alan Richman at GQ magazine claimed, “The french fries were simply perfect.”
Out on the interweb, people are talking about the deliciousness of a Porterhouse Bistro meal and raving about the prix fixe menu—and those people didn’t even get the 50% Groupon discount. Here’s the Porterhouse scorecard: * Yelp: 3.5 out of 5 stars * Opentable: 4 out of 5 stars * Citysearch: 4.5 out of 5 stars
What are people saying?
- Best Porterhouse I have ever had! Amazing selection for non beef eaters especially for a steakhouse. – S. B., Yelp
- If you haven’t been here you have to check this place out. This restaurant really knows how to take care of the customer. And not only does the price top out any other steak restaurant in town but so did the service. I like to go to dinner and feel the warmth and friendliness of the server…and here that’s exactly how they work. Other places are polite and lingering nearby to clear a plate, but here you have the opportunity to see that these people have personalities! Our server was great and she really was on top of everything before we even had to ask. – dawn3, Citysearch
- Have been several times to this restaurant, and have left both impressed in the quality and stuffed to the gills. The prix fixe menu is an unbeatable deal. The porterhosue [sic] steak is definitely the star of the show. – stefanw, Citysearch
