Prometheus' wily fire stealing eventually led to the creation of Italian cuisine, so as punishment, he is now eternally bound to bus spaghetti-strewn tables. Receive the gift of divine home cooking with today’s Groupon: for $20, you get $40 worth of Italian cuisine at F&J Pine Restaurant in the Bronx.
A staple of the Bronx for more than 40 years, F&J Pine Restaurant boasts a pantheon of menu options, from seafood succulents to traditional Italian fare. Begin an edible excursion with a plate of clams Casino, where mollusks gamble away their pearly life savings while mingling with vinegar peppers and bacon ($12.50). Those looking to dive straight into an entree can anchor incisors in the farfalle rustica, a flavorsome concoction of grilled chicken, roasted peppers, and broccoli in basil-infused olive oil ($14.50 for a regular portion). Much like eating an R. L. Stine novel, omnivores can choose their own delicious adventure with the Milanese pine-style cutlet, where a pan fried slice of chicken, veal, or eggplant, gets into precarious situations with a swath of roasted peppers and fresh mozzarella in a warm balsamic vinaigrette ($11.50–$15.50).
With indoor and outdoor seating options, F&J Pine Restaurant's cozy atmosphere invites diners in for a plate full of stomach-massaging eats. While enjoying breezes and discussing the pros of naming a child Ravioli, enjoy sips from the full bar.
