Brunch—like twilight, sporks, friends with benefits, and so many other things that make life worth living—is not quite one thing and not quite another. Walk the line with this Groupon.
$10 for $20 Worth of Sunday Brunch, or Friday-Night Buffet or Dinner
On Sunday from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., diners unfurl a brunch menu of omelets ($6), belgian waffles ($4), and assorted pastries and bagels ($2). Every Friday from 6 p.m. to 11 p.m., Chef Clinton lays out a new buffet spread ($10/person) that can include anything from nachos to cheese and crackers. Alternatively, a rotating dinner menu features items that may include seared salmon with rice pilaf ($8), shrimp scampi in a roasted garlic butter sauce ($8), and $4 desserts such as strawberry shortcake and chocolate cake. This Groupon is for two $10 vouchers.
Friday-night dining at The Gathering is a gamble, where the only risk is overwhelming your pleasure receptors. That’s because chef Clinton Moore reinvents the buffet menu every week, catching taste buds by surprise with made-to-order pizzas, hearty pastas, or his signature jerk chicken wings slathered in the house’s secret sauce. After diners load their plates, they can admire the local artwork adorning the walls, and indulge their ears in the sweet notes of live musicians and sporadically appearing Oompa Loompas on Friday evenings. The same intimate, convivial ambiance can be experienced during Sunday brunch, when the aroma of freshly made omelets, Belgian waffles, and bacon permeates the dining room and lawn garden, which overlooks the river.
