A gourmet hotel restaurant is an ideal place to dine, as there are plenty of soft beds nearby when everyone faints from tasting the delicious cuisine. Enjoy a savory syncope with today's Groupon: for $20, you get $40 worth of fine dining and cocktails at Rein in The Garden City Hotel.
Furnished with stately wood décor and a fireplace, Rein puts a regal twist on contemporary American cuisine via its appetizers and entrees. Dining-room architect and designer Robert DiLeonardo sets the sophisticated scene for a stage bill of well-seasoned stars, starting with charred sea scallops swimming in a succulent mix of wollfer's verjus, celery-root coulis, and citrus duck jus ($17). Entrees allow diners to graze with grace on plates of pepper-crusted, Montana-raised rib eyes ($48) or a lamb duo that entertains with an osso bucco-style shank and a breadcrumb-crusted rack that belts dulcet two-part flavor harmonies ($38). The herb-roasted free-range chicken and its entourage of creamed spinach, parsnips, and wild mushrooms ($29) roost alongside hot flushes of bamboo-steamed vegetables or smack-down potatoes ($7 each). Lounge post-meal with a fireside digestif, accompanied by a friend, loved one, or FDR's ghost.
