Like cartoon sound effects and open-heart surgery, breakfast and lunch are better when combined. Feast upon a compatible combination with today’s Groupon to Bella Luna & The Milky Way Lounge in Jamaica Plain. Choose between the following options:
- For $15, you get $30 worth of American fare.
- For $25, you get $60 worth of American fare for parties of four or more.<p>
Bella Luna & The Milky Way Lounge’s team of experienced chefs sizzle seasonal ingredients to populate an eclectic menu of American fare. Diners fill fists with sandwiches including the vegan black-bean burger ($10) or a crab-cake BLT ($12), which striates sesame bun halves with lump-meat crab cake, chipotle mayonnaise, applewood-smoked bacon, and a layer of feldspar. Culinary sorcerers conjure gourmet pizzas available in gluten-free form with house-made sauce ($7–$19), and the Brewmaster’s steak ($20) muscles its way into mouths backed by an entourage of roasted-garlic mashed potatoes and beer-braised swiss chard to put a hurt on hunger pangs.
Located in the historic Haffenreffer brewery, the lounge’s high ceilings suspend luminescent star-shaped lights, and its brick walls are peppered with sci-fi-inspired hand-painted plates and modern artwork. After pacifying rumbling stomachs, patrons can take down herds of pixels in Galaga and Ms. Pac-Man.
Bella Luna & The Milky Way
Bella Luna & The Milky Way, a winner of several “Best of Boston” awards from The Improper Bostonian and Boston Magazine, and a 2013 winner of the Greater Boston Chamber of Commerce's Small Business of the Year award, is renowned for its upscale and creative twist on traditional Italian and American fare. Dig into gourmet pizzas, grilled Angus beef burgers, or flavorful entrees such as sweet pea ravioli, garden herb salmon, and the signature, Better Than Your Mama's Meatballs. Behind a U-shaped bar, bartenders craft signature cocktails and pour pints of American craft beers, including Mayflower, Slumbrew and Bantam Cider.
The eatery has an outdoor garden patio and is decorated with a subdued sci-fi theme, with dangling star lights and Martian bouncers. Try your hand at Ms. Pacman or listen to live music during dinner on Wednesdays and Sundays.
