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 $25, you get $50 worth of fare at Zephyr on the Charles in the Hyatt Regency Cambridge.
The recently renovated Zephyr dishes out elegant New England–inspired cuisine while treating doe-eyed diners to a scenic picture-windowed view of the Charles River. For lunch and dinner, reel in a native lobster roll (5 oz. lobster salad on an egg roll served with homemade potato chips and cucumber salad, $17) or use your tongue to weave through a culinary tapestry of flatbread pizzas ($11 each). Savory breakfast bites, such as the ham and white-cheddar panini (fried egg, shaved ham, and dijon spread, $11) and salmon benedict (smoked sliced salmon, sautéed spinach, and hollandaise sauce, $14) start the day by luring the hungry, hibernating sun out of its winter cloud hole. Sunday brunch ($32 for adults, $16 for 6- to 12-year-olds, free for 5 and under) livens mundane midmornings with hybrid meal fare.
Zephyr is punctuated by contemporary hardwood floors and colorful, modern décor. The garden terrace opens for outdoor seating during the warmer months of the year, allowing diners to bask in the sun's glow and cackle at melting snowmen.
