Like attaching a fake mustache to a Halloween mask or cleverly changing your name from Obi-Wan Kenobi to Ben Kenobi, adding a new ingredient to something familiar can render it delightfully unrecognizable. Enjoy inventive eats with today’s Groupon to The Lake House in Richfield Springs. Choose between the following options:
- For $25, you get $50 worth of modern American fare for dinner or lunch.
- For $45, you get $100 worth of modern American fare for dinner or lunch.<p>
The Lake House’s chefs create innovative seafood plates and hearty steaks as diners take in lakeside views from the interior of an historic hotel built in 1843. Scan the menu before electing upscale eats such as pumpkin-seed-encrusted trout filets in sherry cream ($16.99) or pan-seared hunter’s ducks dressed in a pear-and-peppercorn au jus ($22.99). Chefs stuff the Lake House bone-in pork chop with an autumnal mélange of apples, onions, blue cheese, and cloud bacon before tossing it on the grill and drenching it in an apple-cider glaze ($17.99). Dinner diners sink meat fangs into a New York strip steak’s side ($19.99), and luncheon guests peruse burgers and sandwiches such as the grilled-chicken cordon bleu, which sports ham, swiss cheese, and a jaunty monocle atop its grilled roll ($8.99). Lounge on the patio facing the lake or illumine meals indoors with the light of Tiffany-style stained-glass table lamps.
