Without its signature cuisine, America would only be characterized by its Hollywood movies, rap music, and shrines devoted to cowboy boots. Get a kick out of American fare with today's Groupon: for $20, you get $40 worth of American cuisine at Symphony 8. Today's Groupon is good toward dinner, served 5 p.m.–close.
Symphony 8's staff entertains taste buds with a menu of burgers, pizzas, and more dished out in a fun, modern setting, replete with bright-red walls and a handcrafted black bar. Fromage fans can dig into the restaurant’s baked mac 'n' cheese ($14), which integrates four cheeses, cream, and parmesan-herb bread crumbs; lobster can be added to the dish ($8) or spoon-fed bits of mozzarella. Beefy delicacies take multiple forms, such as steak tips in a house marinade ($16) or filet mignon served with sautéed spinach and mashed potato ($20), and grilled pizzas ($11+) and burgers, crowned with an assortment of cheeses and other toppings ($1+), recite regal speeches to enthralled place settings. If visitors from the nearby Symphony Hall need post-show entertainment, Symphony 8 has four HDTVs and a radio that plays symphonies backwards. The kitchen keeps late hours, serving food until 12 a.m. every day.
