Eating authentically prepared food lets you taste the very essence of a country and draws far fewer angry glares than chewing on its national flag. Enjoy digestible cultural appreciation with today's Groupon: for $25, you get $50 worth of Indonesian and European fare at Yono's Restaurant.
Yono Purnomoa guest chef at the famed Beard Housesynthesizes a menu split between Indonesian cuisine and traditional European fare that can be paired with one of 1,000 wines. The wild Alaskan king salmon ($28) poaches in hot-and-sour nage and shares a plate with crab dumplings stuffed by hands clad in iron gloves to protect against pinching or crustacean-style tickling. The nasi rames allows cuisine imbibers to dabble in Indonesian samplings including sate, soft-shell crab, and beef short ribs ($32), and other dishes commit palates to exotic meats such as grilled kangaroo with sweet-potato tater tots and braised bok choy ($36). Diners can navigate a labyrinthine list of wines and spirits with the help of discriminating sommeliers to select one of 1,000 wines from 15 countries, more than 40 vodkas, 15 single-malt scotches, and 20 brandies and cognacs.
The dining room cradles 15 tables amid re-created 19th-century construction, offsetting the original woodwork with tin ceilings, bronzed mirrors, and Yono's personal collection of Indonesian artifacts and artwork. Guests can pass salt or sauce back and forth by affixing a string to the crystal chandelier glittering above a mahogany service table, and a live-piano-and-acoustic-bass duo entertains ears on Friday and Saturday nights.
