Though pasta is used for sustenance in America, it is so prevalent in Italy that it frequently gets used for emergency shoelaces, connecting iPods to computers, and eyelash extensions. Indulge in Italy's most practical food with today's Groupon: for $20, you get $40 worth of ravioli, espresso, and more at San Rocco, located in the Flatiron District.
Milanese-born Rocco Arena, who claims he can "save New York," opened San Rocco as an exciting lounge where young and old can relish the tastes of Italy within a modern setting. Dinner diners can inspect the menu for noodle-laden dishes, such as the potato-dumpling gnocchi ($15) with Genovese-style pesto. Awaken stomachs by ringing a culinary bell of filet of daily fresh fish ($22), cooked in white and red grapes. Early birds can swoop in like the thrifty turtledove for the free appetizer Monday through Friday from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. with the purchase of an alcoholic drink. Stroll in for brunch and consume meatballs and homemade garlic bread ($15) using your mouth, or stimulate the creative breakfast cortex with scrambled eggs blended with fontina cheese ($11).
Open until 2 a.m. every day, San Rocco's sleek designs and electric atmosphere make it a thrillciting getaway for cocktails and mixed libations. San Rocco's signature mixed drinks include The Separatist, in which bourbon, Amaro CioCiaro, and fresh lemon deliciously converge, and The Brooklyn, with rye whiskey and dry vermouth. After-dinner coffee consumers won't feel left out, due to the Italian-approved selection of espresso, including the chilled and frothy cappuccino freddo ($3.95). Ponder where the other half of the restaurant's half-sphere lamps went while sampling Italy's gastronomical treasure cove with today's Groupon to San Rocco.
Diners should call to make a reservation.
