Hunger, unlike ambulance sirens, meningitis, and restraining orders, is not something you can safely ignore. Answer the mighty call of a bellowing belly with today's Groupon: dinner aboard the Moshulu, docked at Penn's landing. A restored ship originally launched in 1904, the Mosholu is the world’s largest four-masted sailing boat still afloat. Whether you're dining within the ship's beautifully restored walls or outside on one of the decks, you'll take in gorgeous views of the Delaware river while supping on upscale, contemporary American fare. The menu features steak, seafood and an array of salads and sides; vegetarian and kosher options are also available upon request.

Since it was launched in 1904, the Moshulu has led a colorful life: sailing the seas of Europe, South America, and Africa, circumnavigating Cape Horn 54 times, and ferrying around all sorts of goods, from lumber and grain to copper ore and nitrate. But by 1975, the Moshulu, tired from the stress of constantly evading sea monsters, was ready to retire. Today, it’s docked at Penn’s Landing, the largest four-masted sailing ship afloat and a restaurant serving the culinary creations of executive chef Anthony Bonett. Bonett matches the extravagance of the luxury liner’s interior with an equally upscale menu of modern American cuisine paired with an extensive wine list.
With 360-degree views of the Philadelphia waterfront and skyline in the background, his staff decorates crisp white tablecloths with plates of North Atlantic jumbo flounder, 9-ounce cuts of filet mignon, and highly praised Hawaiian ahi tuna tartare. Private parties can be held in a tented space, heated and floored with weathered hardwood, or aboard multi-level decks left open to fresh sea breezes and the quiet whispers of passing mermaids.
