Long harvested for use as a therapeutic neck rest, lasagna's edibility was discovered after one napping soul woke to find their spinal support missing and their face smeared with delicious bits of ricotta. Dream of delicious dishes with today's Groupon: for $20, you get $40 worth of Italian cuisine at Ristorante Amalfi in Bloomingdale.
Ristorante Amalfi has been serving up traditional Italian cuisine for more than 20 years, and proffers an expansive menu that ranges from pasta and veal to chicken and seafood. Open up cuisine ports for delicious docking vessels of appetizers, such as eggplant rolled with ricotta and mozzarella before raising a stomach mast to accommodate a hearty entree ($7.95). Like the three musketeers, the linguine, shrimp, and broccoli form a dynamic trio and ride horseback through forests of teeth ($19.25). Also escorting a fleet of flavor to the taste buds is the veal marsala, assembled with flotillas of fresh mushrooms and scallions in a dry marsala wine sauce ($23.95). Seafood devotees can welcome the zuppa di pesce, a bonanza of clams, mussels, shrimp, baccalà, and calamari steamed in a scrumptious marinara and delivered to the table on a bed of linguini ($26.95).
