Tables at fine-dining restaurants are known for their fancy white-linen outfits, unlike tables in home kitchens, which are notorious for going nude. Dress up for a nice meal with today’s Groupon: for $20, you get $40 worth of upscale fare at The Derby Bar and Grill in Surrey. Today's deal is only valid during dinner, served Wednesday–Saturday evenings.
At turf club The Derby Bar and Grill, chefs prepare a menu of upscale eats as patrons follow live simulcast horse racing. Protein-packed comestibles—including barbecued Chilean pork back ribs ($19.95) and 8-ounce certified Angus beef burgers slathered in whiskey-mustard sauce ($13.95)—energize diners used to only eating apples and carrots from a trough. Fresh seafood dishes also undergo culinary transformations, such as fire-grilled Pacific salmon crowned in mango salsa ($18.95). Stomach growls struggling to sound out the winning thoroughbred's name quiet after bites of the Santa Anita pizza, a 12-inch dough disc adorned in tomatoes, peppers, artichokes, olives, and mushrooms ($13).
The Derby Bar and Grill's luxurious environs coddle guests in richly upholstered booths and chairs surrounded by dark wood trim, a glowing fireplace, and flat-screen televisions displaying live horse racing. For those who fancy making a bet, off-track wagering tempts participants with the chance to win enough riches to start an ostrich-racing circuit.
