Fine-dining establishments can be identified by their use of fine china instead of paper plates, wine pairings instead of canned soda, and heirloom vegetables instead of wax fruit. Delight in fine distinctions with today’s Groupon to Twenty9 in Malvern, Pennsylvania. Choose between the following options:
- For $20, you get $40 worth of upscale American cuisine.
- For $39, you get $80 worth of upscale American cuisine.
Within a bi-level space, Twenty9 and its menu find room for both elegant, upscale dining and casual pub eats below-decks. Applewood bacon seals in the juices of the filet mignon ($33.50) and insulates it from jealous gossip between crab-and-corn risotto and garlic spinach. Free-range chicken ($33.50) adapts to the confines of the table with the help of butternut squash and apple-and-goat-cheese salad, and 18-ounce rib eyes ($28.50) leave room on the plate only for a classic side of veggies, potato, or machismo. The lower level slides shareable plates such as prime-rib cheesesteak nachos ($10.95) and burgers with gourmet toppings ($8.95) down the bar toward flat-screen-fixated munchers. In the warmer months, live music launches from an immense open-air patio and trespasses into the formal dining room to tiptoe amid warm wood tones and elegant cut-stone inlays.
