One of Benjamin Franklin’s last theories was that taking in a good view while eating aids both in digestion and in the ability to squeeze milk out of coal. Prove him half-right with today's Groupon at the Admiralty, located inside The Edgewater Hotel at Langdon Street and Wisconsin Avenue. Choose between the following options:
• For $25, you get $50 worth of elegant cuisine and drinks during dinner Friday and Saturday.
• For $30, you get $60 worth of elegant cuisine and drinks during dinner Sunday–Thursday.
The Admiralty's diners can indulge in fresh, seasonal fare and a wine list replete with more than two hundred bottles while ogling scenic sunset views of Lake Mendota or relaxing in the restaurant's elegant ambiance. Step out of Madison's urban bustle and saunter through the dinner menu, which ignites inner flames with kumamoto oysters, à la mignonette or Rockefeller ($13), and treats tines to prosciutto-wrapped scallops chaperoned by apricot-cranberry chutney, micro greens, and an overprotective father ($14). New york strip steak conquers a plate of buttermilk-chive mashed potatoes and steaming vegetables du jour ($32), and salmon with king-crab hollandaise perches atop saffron rice pilaf and asparagus spears ($35). As they dine, patrons can leave their cars parked in the hotel's free indoor lot and tie their boats to the dock for up to two hours, or until the vessels get discovered by the casting director of Titanic 2: Freshwater Boogaloo.
