Eating a hearty steak is a more kingly act than wearing a crown or banishing the dog to a small island in the South Atlantic. Get the royal treatment with today's Groupon: for $25, you get $50 worth of upscale steak and seafood at Bridget's Modern Steakhouse in Ambler. This Groupon expires October 8, 2011.
Resurrected from its humble beginnings as a thrift store and TV repair shop, Bridget's fills its contemporary, renovated space with delectable signature eats, such as succulent steaks and fresh seafood. Small plates lend themselves to communal divvying, such as the crab cakes teeming with avocado salsa, sweet chili butter, and applewood-smoked bacon ($14) or the grilled flatbread pizza that boasts locally culled mushrooms from nearby Chester County ($13). Bridget's filet mignon struts the taste bud runway as 10 ounces of center-cut prime fillet decked out in a savory outfit of green onions, sesame seeds, garlic green beans, and potatoes ($36). Dig into the blackened rib eye spruced up with horseradish cream and crispy onion straws ($36), or hop on the taste train north to the new york strip, a juicy 14-ounce helping of carnivore candy ($33). The jambalaya unites chicken, shrimp, clams, chorizo, veggies, and a piquant creole sauce for a jovial flavor conference over seasoned rice ($29).
Bridget's makes its home in Ambler, named one of the Classic Towns of Greater Philadelphia by the Delaware Valley Regional Planning Commission. Its stately stone walls and multihued brick floors are augmented by hardwood accents and a neutral color scheme as inviting as welcome mat made out of freshly baked cookies.
