Chefs' ovens burn much hotter than conventional ovens, allowing them to quickly roast meats and melt glacier chunks into gourmet ice water. Enjoy professional cooking with today’s Groupon: for $59, you get $120 worth of Southeast Asian dinner cuisine at Spice Market.
Inspired by Southeast Asia's colorful street food, chef and owner Jean-Georges Vongerichten's team of flavor masters assembles a menu of sumptuous seafood, grilled meats, and noodle dishes. Named one of Jezebel's 100 Best Restaurants in 2008, Spice Market is nestled in the sleek W Atlanta Midtown hotel. Spiced chicken samosas slip-n-slide into miniature pools of cilantro yogurt ($9.50), and spoons search out the honeydew gazpacho soup's spicy grilled shrimp, cooled by lime, mint, and miniature windmills ($7.50). Char-grilled chicken lounges in kumquat lemongrass dressing ($18), and a sweet chili glaze coats wok-charred eggplant sprinkled with peanuts ($9). Chefs sauté snappers, plate them with asparagus and shitake mushrooms, and twirl the dish in a sesame-vinaigrette sauce ($24) during heated waltzing competitions around the kitchen, and grilled strip steak is courted by the savory flavors of garlic, coriander, and sesame ($32).
Bottles of wine and handcrafted cocktails, such as the Spice Market sangria ($11), encourage groups to linger beneath the sheer panels of hanging lights as they recline on silky yellow-green and purple pillows or sneak bites of verdant bamboo leaves.
