What You'll Get
Unlike visiting a new neighbor’s house, visiting a steak house comes with a virtual guarantee that you’ll be welcomed, fed, and trusted with knives. Make a hunger-halting house call with today’s Groupon: for $20, you get $40 worth of steak, seafood, sushi, and more at Spamps in Conshohocken.
Spamps stamps out the possibility of hunger with an eclectic menu of entrees alongside a lengthy sushi list. Overthrow a dangerously ballooning appetite with a starter such as the spicy crab soup ($6+), or nosh on the raw bar's colossal shrimp cocktail ($14), named to entice diners and infuriate linguists. Afterward, dive into entrees such as the 8-ounce fillet served lounging amongst sautéed mushrooms beneath a creamy blanket of béarnaise sauce ($29), or the veal oscar, in which breaded veal medallions are accessorized with asparagus, jumbo lump crab, and hollandaise sauce ($29).The sushi menu loads up on crustacean combinations such as the signature Spamps roll, in which black-pepper seared tuna and asparagus are hugged by rightfully protective king crab ($17). Diners can bask in the eatery's elegant scenery seven nights a week and thoughtfully chew on ear candy from live DJs on Friday and Saturday nights.

Growing up, Marcie Spampinato watched her father, Mike, masterfully manage a local country club. By seventh grade, she was working alongside him, and today—with a restaurant management degree from Penn State under her belt—she joins with Mike to co-manage their steak-and-sushi joint, Spamps.
Chefs trained in Japan artfully stuff the eatery's sushi rolls with fresh ingredients such as black-pepper-crusted tuna and flying fish roe. Fusion flourishes such as kimchi tartar sauce, miso beurre blanc, and sake reductions give entrees such as rib-eye steak an Asian flair.
And much like a chocoholic's dream journal, the eatery's new cocktails revolve around sweet flavors, especially Marcie's favorite, the pumpkin-pie martini. Libations, which also include wine and beer, flow freely behind a copper bar with TVs or fill glasses in a dining room with exposed brick walls and private booths. At an outdoor patio dubbed The Grotto, lofted TVs illuminate trellises and tabletops as well as bar-goers shimmying to a live DJ's beats on Friday and Saturday nights.
