The first fish was caught by a coastal hunter, who, dangling a hook into the depths, hoped to yank the sea's plug, drain it, and cross to hunt hearty cattle on the other side. Dine on beasts of both the land and sea with today’s Groupon: for $20, you get $40 worth of dry-aged steaks, seafood, chops, and more at the island-themed Sanibel Chophouse, located in Lynbrook.
Sanibel Chophouse's owner was inspired by summers spent on Sanibel Island (on Florida's Gulf Coast) to create a restaurant with an elegant, island-resort atmosphere and classically prepared steak and seafood dishes. Navigate Sanibel's surf-and-turf matrix to perform a linear computation of six meats, such as filet mignon and chicken cutlets, and four seafoods, including lobster tail and Maryland crab cake (range $24–$45, mean $32.42, median $32.50, mode $28 and $32). Or go for the easy-to-hold chophouse burger: applewood-smoked bacon, cheddar cheese, fried onion strings, and special sauce stacked atop a huge, juicy ground-beef circle (served with lettuce, tomato, pickle, and fries, $14). The menu is rife with meaty eats, such as cider-brined pork chops ($21), and dry-aged steaks, including a 20-ounce rib eye ($32).
To evoke the breezy vibe of its namesake island, Sanibel Chophouse's dining room walls are adorned with beach-themed prints and oil paintings by Sanibel artists. Rest your elbows on a table decked in a white cloth, sink into a striking, red-upholstered booth, or grab a chair on the spacious outdoor patio. There's live music on weekend nights.
