Putting a man on the moon was briefly considered mankind’s greatest achievement, until Neil Armstrong invented sliced bread. Savor civilization’s finest creation with today’s Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of Italian-American fare at Frankie Mohawk’s Bar and Grill.
At Frankie Mohawk’s Bar and Grill, dedicated oven charmers construct a menu of fresh creations served amid subtle hues and floral arrangements. Guests discuss the merits of pickle spears over slices while awaiting specialty burgers such as the 8-ounce Italian burger with capicola, salami, and provolone cheese ($6.50). The restaurant’s own tomato sauce arrives with many dishes, including the eggplant parmesan ($14.95), and specialty hand-carved meats nestle into fresh-baked bread with a carving-station order ($6.95). Manicotti crepes also sneak up on hunger with hidden reserves of ricotta and parmesan cheese ($13.95). The tortellini contadina with italian sausage and fresh snow peas in a blush plum-tomato sauce ($13.95) provides the necessary energy for analyzing marinara Rorschach tests that mysteriously appear on napkins.
