What You'll Get
One of Benjamin Franklin’s last theories was that taking in a good view while eating aids both in digestion and in the ability to squeeze milk out of coal. Prove him half-right with today's Groupon: for $20, you get $40 worth of modern American fare and drinks at Virtu Restaurant.
While gazing upon the nearby Genesee River and the Rochester skyline, guests at Virtu Restaurant sample a seasonally changing menu of sophisticated, modern fare brimming with fresh ingredients. First plates shush rumbling stomachs with roasted garlic, tomato and basil polenta fries with a creamy gorgonzola fondue ($12). Move on to a salady second plate, or skip straight to a third of braised beef short ribs, enhanced with wild-mushroom risotto and a braised jus ($23). The restaurant's glowing ceilings reflect elegance on plates of rare-seared ahi tuna, accompanied by spinach and polenta cakes and fried leek matchsticks ($22), and provide atmosphere for forks to romantically twine tines. Virtu has a wide list of libations, ranging from wine to a martini list of seven deadly sins and seven heavenly "virtus," allowing sippers to customize the naughtiness level of their personal palates.
