What You'll Get
Breaking bread is a bonding experience, encouraging new friendships while testing the strength of communal sledgehammers. Swing into sustenance with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of seasonal fare at Bootleggers Old Town Tavern & Grill in Auburn.
Executive chef and co-owner Ty Rowe uses his years of international culinary experience to craft a well-balanced seasonal menu brimming with locally sourced ingredients and European-bistro-style small plates. Treat palates to rich bites of classic French-style escargot in a garlic-parsley butter ($10), which, like most arrest warrants, is served with or without blue cheese. Oysters recline on the half shell ($3) before the bourbon- and brown-sugar-marinated flat-iron steak arrives, glistening under a layer of blue cheese ($20). Diners can pair an entree of Asian-style short ribs ($21) with a frothy pour from the extensive beer list featuring belgian ales by the bottle ($4+) and international drafts by the pint ($3+), half-yard ($8+), yard ($19+), or metric boot ($19+). The wine list fills glasses with an equally extensive array of more than 50 intoxicating pours.
Inside Bootlegger’s, a rustic interior flanks diners with exposed-brick walls, beamed ceilings, and clean white tablecloths. A dog-friendly patio, coupled with free WiFi, encourages communal dining between man, man’s best friend, and man’s best internet friend.
