Failing to eat a good dinner leaves room for hunger to lay eggs in your stomach, which eventually hatch into fantasies about industrial sized containers of peanut butter. Fortify empty bellies with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of upscale comfort cuisine and drinks at Brickwall Tavern and Dining Room.
Brickwall's friendly ambiance livens up the final block of Cookman Avenue in Asbury Park, revitalizing a once-forgotten neighborhood with warming food and local events. An industrial-style interior sets the stage for an eclectic menu of updated homestyle plates, sporting appetizers such as cajun seared shrimp with parmesan grits ($12) and savory main courses such as a dry-rub half-rack of ribs ($15). More herbaceous hankerings can be answered with earthy eats such as potato, pesto, and parmesan fusilli ($14). Satisfy a sweet tooth with a single dessert of blueberry cobbler, or swaddle a whole mouth's worth with a half-dozen post-dinner dishes (desserts are $3 each, or $15 for six). The tavern's extensive drink selection includes ample offerings of wine, beer, and creative cocktails to wet the whistles of patrons lacking their own camel-like water supply.
