If humankind never learned to play with its food, it would never have learned to play with its ingredients, and the world would be one bereft bowl of gruel. Taste the fruits of culinary creativity with today's Groupon: for $20, you get $40 worth of upscale lounge fare at SkyBar of Lexington.
Within the softly lit, modern interior of penthouse-level SkyBar, guests sink into plush, circular seats to take in views of the city skyline while supping on tapas, sandwiches, and sipping on martinis. As a house piano player serenades ears, a menu presents options for the most fussbudgety of the senses—taste—such as crab cakes ($10), pistachio-crusted lamb ($13.50), and corned-beef reuben sandwiches ($9). Feel free to satisfy the gullet with selections from an expansive list of wines and martinis, which acts as a roadmap toward creative libations such as the chocolate-tini ($10) or the french martini ($12), which combines pineapple juice with vodka served in a fresh, hollowed-out baguette.
