The monopoly tycoons of the 19th century traditionally did their wheeling and dealing at fine-dining establishments, cleverly concealing the fact that they still lived with their parents. Bring your culinary affairs up-to-date with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of contemporary southern cuisine at Aubri Lane's in Milledgeville.
The menu at Aubri Lane's bursts with southern cuisine crafted with fresh, organic vegetables and choice cuts of meat and seafood. Garnish lackluster forks with crispy calamari ($9), or ensnare a rowdy order of Hot Damn shrimp ($7) by promising it that your stomach has cable. Aubri Lane's also serves a savory selection of southern favorites, including pecan-crusted Carolina trout ($18) and jerk-crusted pork loin ($16) flanking buttery sides such as collard greens, cheddar grits, and chive smashed potatoes ($3 each). A saccharine slice of homemade white-chocolate bread pudding topped with bananas foster and vanilla ice cream ($7) adds sweet satisfaction to any meal, while the crème brûlée ($6) appeases jaded taste buds with a fresh flavor each week. First used in 1884 by the Milledgeville Banking Company, the building maintains its original hammered tin ceiling and vault, both of which appear on the National Registry List even though all the party-loving ghosts have since been evicted.
