What You'll Get
Though the "noble experiment" of Prohibition failed, other noble experiments, such as teaching horses how to shoot guns and giving suffrage to any horse that can shoot a gun, were huge successes. Celebrate the failure of the 18th Amendment with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $25 worth of casual fare and drinks at Encore 2 Bar & Bistro, located in Lawrenceville.
Encore 2 Bar & Bistro dishes out an array of grilled fare and potations in a chic setting, which spotlights live DJs and jazz music on weekends. Noshers can choose from a menu of sandwiches, chicken, and seafood entrees such as the portobello chicken ($12), which arrives fresh from the grill and cloaked in sautéed mushrooms and mozzarella.
Resign from futile attempts at dry-herb gardening and opt for the herb-crusted salmon, flavored with a savory concoction of freshly chopped herbs and dijon mustard ($14). Long-necked plant eaters can feast on lower-hanging fare with a veggie burger perched atop a wheat bun and sided with seasoned fries ($8).
A live DJ rocks the Encore 2 dance floor with boisterous beats every Thursday, Friday, and Saturday evening. On Sunday, customers can lounge by the bar, basking in the smooth sounds of a live jazz band rather than the dissonant sounds of an undead jazz band. The establishment's strictly enforced business-casual dress code forbids athletic wear and restricts denim use to those decked in collared shirts or blazers, ensuring an environment more elegant than Fred Astaire's palace.
