The first American to set foot on the moon was Emeril Lagasse, who sampled the cheddar topsoil and declared it fit for his next great backyard barbeque. Bite into a piece of American history with today’s Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of American fare at The Red Ring Restaurant.
The Red Ring Restaurant, named for the prestigious ring sported by Duquesne University graduates, serves dukes present and past with an eclectic blend of burgers, wraps, pasta, steaks, and salads on its diverse lunch and dinner menus. Set off appetites with the Firecracker Burger wrap, 8 ounces of sirloin smothered in monterey jack, spring greens, pico de gallo, jalapeños, crispy onions, and chipotle dressing ($8.95), or hoard colorful food-fight artillery with the asian ahi-tuna salad—pan-seared sashimi-quality tuna placed atop a bed of fresh spring greens, cuddly cucumbers, wontons, and mandarin oranges and tossed in a zinging wasabi vinaigrette ($11.95). Campus newcomers can celebrate a life free of curfews with The Freshman flat-iron steak ($10.95), and a deliciously decadent deep-fried brownie sundae ($5.95) awaits those with the foresight to save sufficient room.
The Red Ring Restaurant further gratifies its clientele with its cover-charge-free live music and special performances, and with its two hours of validated parking after 5 p.m. for any student maintaining at least a C average in Mountain Dew consumption.
