What You'll Get
Tycoons of the 19th century traditionally did their wheeling and dealing at exclusive restaurants, cleverly concealing the fact that they still lived with their parents. Dine in similar fashion with today's deal: for $25, you get $50 worth of sushi, steaks, and gourmet fare at Two Steak & Sushi Den in New Hyde Park on the Union Turnpike.
The sophisticated eatery features an extensive menu of gourmet fare and fresh sushi for lunch Monday through Friday, and dinner daily. Start a decadent dining experience with an order of the miso-marinated foie gras, complete with seared big-eye tuna and truffle ponzu ($21), or opt for the rich Italian burrata cheese ($17) for your daily dose of dairy. Popular entrees at the eatery include chorizo-crusted Maine diver scallops with a salsify and lobster emulsion ($32), and any of the prime, dry-aged steaks, such as the filet mignon charred to order and trailed by an entourage of four accompanying sauces ($29 for 8 ounces). If a painful book-club breakup leaves you craving emotion-mimicking raw fare, indulge in Two's fresh sushi offerings, such as the Strawberry Heaven roll with spicy crab, fresh strawberries, and a mango puree ($18), or the jalapeño, cilantro, yuzu soy, and garlic-gussied yellowtail sashimi ($8).
Two's sleek space features a sushi bar and two separate dining rooms: a formal dining den ideal for marriage proposals and hanging out with the mayor, as well as a more-casual café appropriate for friendly lunches and low-key nights out. There is no purchase limit for this deal (though there is a limit of one redemption per visit). Grab enough Groupons to feast like a king, queen, jack, or ace over the next six months. Like kissing the hand of the librarian after renting a book, reservations are required, so call ahead to save a spot in the elegant dining room.
Two Steak & Sushi Den has had some great articles written about it, including reviews in the New York Times and Newsday. The restaurant has three positive reviews from Zagat members, along with a four-star average from Yelpers and OpenTable reviewers:
- We tried two steaks, a bone-in, dry-aged rib-eye and a prime, dry-aged New York strip. Both were top of the line: beautifully charred, juicy and cooked to order. – Joanne Starkey, New York Times
- Chef's reverie. – Peter M. Gianotti, Newsday
- By far the best restaurant experience that I have had on Long Island. The sushi was superb, I didn't know what yakitori was but I tried it anyway & was pleasantly surprised, it was delicious! – GaryO8564, Zagat member
