For $59, today's Groupon gets you a candlelit dinner for two at 94th Aero Squadron (a $120 value). From the beautiful comforts of a World War I replica French farmhouse comes a modern sojourn into the past fed by elegant cuisine.
The contemporary antiquity eatery overlooks Montgomery Field Airport, whose views complement a handsome interior aesthetic peppered with war memorabilia, aviation artifacts, dark-beamed ceilings, huge stone fireplaces, and tables outfitted with headphones that tap into the FAA control tower. The candlelit dinner comes with a bottle of wine ($26.00) and four courses from a fixed menu. Each patron will start their meal with an appetizer of stuffed mushrooms ($9), before choosing a dinner selection of soup or salad followed by a choice of prime rib, salmon, or swordfish each paired with crab stuffed shrimp or shrimp scampi, and a side of rice, garlic mashed potatoes, vegetables, or a baked potato ($30.00). Fill excess stomach room with any selection from the desert menu ($8).
The exquisite charms of 94th Aero Squadron's carefully catered ambience provide a dining experience you can only find in films or Fox Trot comic strips. A visit to the restaurant returns you to a pre-Internet, pre-hybrid, pre-World War II world without fear of spontaneous invisibility.

- Very impressed with the ambiance and french farm-house setting. Food and service were very good and the price was reasonable for the setting. The beer-cheese soup is excellent! – OpenTable user who dined on 2/14/2010
- My wife and I ordered the Prime Rib and it has to be the best Prime Rib that I've ever tasted. The creamed corn (always given to us compliments of the chef) is perfect. – OpenTable user who dined on 12/12/2010
