Welcome to Groupon, Central Jersey! For our inaugural deal, $20 gets you $40 worth of Italian-inspired cuisine at Christine's Restaurant, located at 385 Oxford Valley Road in Yardley. Since this is everyone's first Groupon, allow us to briefly explain how it works.
How Groupon Works
Groupon is a combination of the words group and coupon. Each day, we offer an unbeatable deal on the best of Central Jersey: restaurants, spas, sporting events, theater, and more. By promising businesses a minimum number of customers, we get discounts you won't find anywhere else. We call it "collective buying power."
If you want to get the deal, just click BUY before the offer ends at midnight. If the minimum number of people (10 for today's deal) sign up by the end of the day, you'll be emailed a gift certificate the next morning. You can print your Groupons, or redeem them with our mobile app. Use them whenever you want until the deal expires—today's expires in one year. If not enough people join, no one gets the deal (and you won't be charged), so invite your friends to make sure you get the discount!
The spaghetti western film genre is noted for its good use of extreme close-ups, its bad use of tomato sauce during gunfights, and its ugly use of Clint Eastwood’s puppetry skills. Get a fistful of western-less spaghetti with today’s Groupon: for $20, get $40 worth of Italian-inspired cuisine at Christine's Restaurant, a BYOB eatery in Yardley, PA.
Christine's Restaurant features upscale Italian fare served in a comfortable atmosphere. Tote along your favorite libations to pair with an assortment of culinary offerings, such as Christine's house salad ($7/$10), a fusion of spring greens, granny-smith apples, walnuts, and feta cheese, drizzled with a ravishing raspberry vinaigrette, or partake in the homemade classic crab cakes ($26). The gnocchi pomodoro ($15) presents potato dumplings hand-rolled, nestled in a marinara-like sauce, and topped with pecorino Romano cheese. For herbivorous diners, dig into the grilled vegetarian platter ($18) composed of garden residents like eggplant, zucchini, asparagus, and portabella mushrooms.
Wooden décor, warmly colored walls, and a seasonal patio help to create an accessible ambience. Service is attentive, knowledgeable, and able to recite passages from a screenplay Ronald Reagan wrote about town run by a dog mayor, and Chef James Armetta strives to include diverse diners with vegetarian options, gluten-free pasta offerings, and left-handed silverware.
- The type of place where you can have a quiet relaxing meal, but still come in jeans if you want. The servers are always attentive and pleasant and the place has a great atmosphere. – Karen G.
- This restaurant is beautiful, clean and staffed just right. I give Christine’s an A+. – 2958twin, TripAdvisor
White columns, tapestries, and venetian blinds bespeak both American hominess and Italian tradition at Christine’s Restaurant. Under the house's a-frame roof, Chef James Armetta prepares cuts of eggplant, veal, and chicken in the style of parmigiana or of Picasso's Dinner Period. Patrons bring their own beverages for lunch or dinner as they tuck into seafood, steak, pasta, and burgers. While Chef Armetta prides himself on his traditional Italian cooking, he is also given to experimenting with original creations that riff off of classic plates.
