Dining On A Dime: Becoming A Spinster

Pssst…Wanna get high for $45? We’ve scored something mind-blowing that’ll send you into fits of ecstasy, give you serious munchies, and create vivid hallucinations of Chef Goddess Sara Johannes rolling around in a pile of expensive shoes.

Though we must admit, in our hallucination, she’s topless and dressed in nothing but a strategically placed Spicy Tuna Cone, carrying a tray of Five Sixty’s delicious Gin & Homemade Tonic cocktails. And surrounding her are waiters dressed as clowns, each carrying a talking Wolfgang Puck frozen pizza. Hey, it’s a hallucination. We have no control over its content.

For the rest of the summer, Five Sixty by Wolfgang Puck is offering a steal for a seat at a table on top of the world with one of the city’s best – and only – rotating views. For just $45 on Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays, diners can select one First Flavor (that’s an appetizer to us bumpkins), an Entrée and a selection of Chef Isla’s daily to-die-for house-made cookies or ice cream.

You can choose anything from the regular menu (including fabulous new summer creations), except the Rib Chop for Two and Whole Wok Fried Sea Bass each incur a $10 up-charge. So we say skip those and go for the bountiful bargain bonanza. After all, we don’t want to pay an extra ten bucks for something that shows up at the table with a face still on it.

The only other stipulation is that everyone at the table must order the $45 three-course menu to get the deal. It’s all or nothing, baby! None of this, “I’ll have tap water and a piece of Edamame” so you can pick off your date’s plate.

Of course, we know that $45 isn’t a steal for every budget, so there’s always the fabulous Five Sixty Happy Hour each Monday through Friday 5:00 – 7:00 p.m. where a chef’s selections of tapas-sized nibbles, cocktails, sake and more are just $5.60 apiece. Same great view included free of charge.

So make the most of the first half of the week with fine dining instead of dollar-menu gorging.

And guys, even though it’s summer, please no sandals or flip-flops. Not only is it against their dress code, nobody wants to see your hairy toes. Though come to think of it, they did feature prominently in our latest hallucination.

Special Three-Course Prix Fixe Menu: $45
Monday – Wednesday, 5:30 – 11:00 p.m.

Special $5.60 Happy Hour
Monday – Friday, 5:00 – 7:00 p.m.
