The dueling glove was originally an invention of chefs who would slap steaks with oven mitts and demand electric knives at dawn. Taste the edible creations of culinary innovators with this Groupon.
$20 for $40 Worth of Steakhouse Cuisine and Seafood
Guests can reel in grilled wild salmon with roasted garlic gnocchi, arugula, and prosciutto cream ($26.95) or a land-lubbing entrée, such as the slow-braised beef short ribs ($26.95) or 9-ounce filet mignon drizzled in blue-cheese cream and balsamic-fig reduction ($39.95). Like fireworks launched from pudding cups, desserts conclude evenings with a sweet bang and include white-chocolate bread pudding ($6.95), plus an entire spectrum of sweet sips.

Pierpont's at Union Station
Nestled inside Kansas City’s landmark Union Station, Pierpont’s at Union Station pays tribute to the railroad industry, even taking its name from John Pierpont (J.P.) Morgan. Inside, seafood such as oysters, Maine lobster, scallops, and wild salmon is flown in daily for upscale dishes that complement exquisite steaks hand-selected from the top 12% of beef produced in the United States. These cuts include the signature filet mignon Pierpont, a 6- or 9-ounce filet dressed with blue-cheese cream, balsamic-fig reduction, and roasted-garlic whipped potatoes.
Constructed in 1914, Pierpont’s turn-of-the-century setting complements the cuisine, with almost 60% of the restaurant’s three floors appearing as they did when WWI first started and most Americans commuted to work via hot-air balloon. Thanks to 8,000 square feet of historical floor space, the night spot can seat up to 200 guests, statistically half of whom are welcome to visit the original women’s smoking room. Beneath the dining room, wine cellars house more than 300 bottles of wine, and private dining rooms host events and special occasions. Each room is individually decorated, creating distinctly unique atmospheres for planning a wedding or surprising an investor by asking them to prom.
