With your kitchen's pots and pans inhabited by the evil spirits of dead pots and pans, cooking at home has become both time-consuming and spooky. Get quality cuisine without interference from crazed kitchenware with today's Groupon: for $30, you get $60 worth of fine dining and drinks at Undercurrent Restaurant, located downtown.
The lunch and dinner menus at Undercurrent ebb and flow with the seasonal ingredients of the tides, providing the freshest fare available at any given moment. Start your meal with the popular lobster and shrimp spring rolls with soy ginger dipping sauce and shoyu reduction ($11), which are never out of season because it's always spring in Neptune's wavy realm. Delve into the current month's best offerings with a main course of grilled Berkshire pork chop, drizzled with a black-peppercorn molasses glaze and served with black eyed peas, poblano peppers, wilted spinach, and raspberry-Creole mustard reduction ($23), or coriander-cocoa-rubbed 8-ounce ribeye, with buttermilk and green onion whipped potatoes, grilled asparagus, and piquillo pepper demi glace ($30). Perfect the stomach-pampering deal with dessert: a white-chocolate blueberry bread pudding with caramel sauce ($8).
Undercurrent's white table linens and expansive, colonnaded dining area are perfectly suiting to sipping wine, so peruse the beverage listing for the right glass of Chehalem pinot grigio ($8.50) or Beringer cabernet sauvignon ($9) to complement the nearest column.
