Like a drag race, a hearty pub meal gets your blood pumping and is best experienced to the sounds of Whitesnake's Greatest Hits. Rock out to culinary power ballads with today’s Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of gastropub fare at Alchemy N’ Ale.
Alchemy N’ Ale's chefs fuse old and new gastronomic traditions in a menu that complements the turn-of-the-century English pub atmosphere with locally sourced gastropub goodies. Lobster deviled eggs twirl a culinary color wheel of yellow-mustard crème fraiche, celery sea salt, and butter-poached lobster ($14). Kitchen wizards bewitch bold flavors into brotherhood in the crab pierogies, which are crowned with fresh corn and Old Bay grilled onions like Neptune at prom ($16), and the flavorfully forgiving A N’ A burger lets molasses bacon, sweet-onion marmalade, and port glaze crash in its warm bun digs ($14).
Alchemy N’ Ale’s Old England ambiance and sizable, candlelit tables fuel conversation, camaraderie, and the creation of blueprints for a transatlantic shepherd's-pie pipeline. A Sunday brunch menu ($20/person) recharges weekend-warrior batteries with a plethora of fresh pastries and breads that flank one of eight hearty appetite attackers, such as house-made ginger and lemongrass granola atop a bed of fresh berries.
