Though the primary venue for enjoying gourmet meals, restaurants are often stocked with dangerously unfamiliar tableware. Spear a deluxe meal in your domicile with today's Groupon: for $175, you get a seven-course dinner for two in your own home or another location of your choosing from Simplicity Chef (a $350 value). Simplicity Chef serves the greater Boston area and beyond, and can deliver dinners to anywhere between Rhode Island and New Hampshire.
Born in Italy, Simplicity Chef Joe Letteri now sautés his way around New England, bringing the world's cuisine to Yankee doorsteps. Choose seven courses as ammunition for your toothsome barrage, and prepare for an onslaught of elegant edibles such as cinnamon-and-tomato lobster bisque, tea-leaf-coated tuna steak with sesame and bok choy, or a simple smattering of grapefruit and orange ambrosia. Herbivore-friendly selections include roasted beets—served with mache salad greens, goat cheese, and toasted walnuts—and hand-rolled semolina gnocchi, accompanied by spicy marinara and crispy, monocle-adorned servings of parmigano. Your intimate event will be fully staffed with Joe's elite crew, so after conceptualizing your menu, making reservations, and dusting off the good doilies, all that remains is to enjoy a memorable evening of fine dining.
