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. Enjoy curfew-free culinary escapes with today's Groupon: for $30, you get $60 worth of upscale dinner fare at Bistro on Roe in Gander.
Drawing aesthetic inspiration from casual Parisian bistros, Bistro on Roe's long tables, burgundy walls, and mahogany trappings foster intimate confines in which to enjoy carefully crafted fare. Like a Day-Glow bonnet, the menu's traditional dishes feature modern twists, with appetizers such as the warm mushroom tart ($8) or smoked salmon with potato pancakes ($12). Diners can then buy up the belly's remaining retail space with entrees such as the handmade pasta basking in a prosciutto, mushroom, and tomato cream wading pool ($17), or the Certified Black Angus filet mignon in bourbon-and-brown-sugar sauce ($33). Indicate the end of a dinner-long staring contest by plowing forks through desserts such as the flourless chocolate cake with raspberry coulis ($7.)
