United States residents who sample other cultures’ cuisines open their minds to whole new worlds of customs, resources, and meals that don’t go with ketchup. Learn about the Emerald Isle with today’s Groupon: for $59, you get the Kinsale-Chateaubriand dinner for two at The Emerald Restaurant (a $175.50 value). The dinner includes the following:
- Two potato or onion soups
- Two house salads and Irish-style soda bread
- Two chateaubriand beef tenderloin dinners with madeira mushroom sauce and roasted onions
- Fresh garden vegetables
- Irish-whiskey cake for two
The Emerald Restaurant’s quaint cottage milieu flings open its wooden doors to welcome diners to a menu of authentic Irish comfort fare. Coursed meals begin with slices of soda bread served alongside strawberry butter and thick-and-creamy potato soup or its onion-rich, brothy cousin. House-made red dressing adorns the leafy greens of two garden salads, which help teeth stretch out before they acrobatically leap across thick cuts of chateaubriand beef tenderloin or chisel fresh veggies into the shapes of past presidents’ heads. Dining duos cap off edible escapades with bites of decadent Irish-whiskey cake.
Waiters present most dinners on a silver platter, elegantly complementing tables decorated with Irish china, lace tablecloths, and fine crystal. The intimate space is known as a good spot for wedding proposals and exchanges of everlasting-platonic-friendship rings. Tables should be reserved in advance, and diners seeking gluten- or meat-free substitutions should mention this when making reservations.
The Emerald Restaurant
The Emerald Restaurant's quaint cottage, just minutes from Hill Country Galleria and Lake Travis, flings open its wooden doors to welcome diners into a fairy-tale-like milieu rich with Irish china, lace tablecloths, and fine crystal. Originally built as a private residence, The Emerald Restaurant has enjoyed 30 years as a community landmark under the ownership of the Kinsella family. Just like lunch in elementary school, most meals are presented on a silver platter, showcasing European-style and modern American cuisine including steaks, lobster, fish, and duck. The intimate space sets a romantic mood that frequently attracts wedding proposals and exchanges of everlasting-platonic-friendship rings.
