With your kitchen's pots and pans inhabited by the evil spirits of dead pots and pans, cooking at home has become both time-consuming and spooky. Get quality cuisine without interference from crazed kitchenware with today's Groupon: for $20, you get $40 worth of classic and contemporary American-style fare at Generations Restaurant in Media. This Groupon is not valid for lunch, but can be redeemed during dinner or on Sunday, when the restaurant hosts a lavish brunch buffet.
At Generations, the seasonally inspired chef perpetually reinvents a carefully composed menu that’s ripe with imaginative dishes derived from fresh, locally grown ingredients. Palates can warm up with a bowl of French onion soup ($6) or dismantle the fresh tuna stack, an assemblage of tuna medallions encrusted with sesame seeds and paired with a punch of homemade wasabi aioli ($10). Crab meat and mozzarella rest atop the chicken pomodoro, which, after being steeped in a sizzling plum tomato and white wine sauce, arrives aside garlic smashed potatoes and freshly sautéed asparagus ($19). Intrigue incisors with Generations' tantilizing take on the black angus NY strip steak with sautéed spinach and blue cheese plus a delightful portion of basil risotto ($26). Beyond meaty meals, the chefs can easily whip up one of many vegetarian options already on the menu or prep select dishes in accordance with herbivorous or gluten-free wishes.
The glow of brass chandeliers softly illuminates the dark wood and earthen-tone walls that span the various dining rooms—spaces with names such as The Library and The State Room. The restaurant also features a variety of weekly events including trivia talents on Tuesdays, tarot readings on Thursday nights, and karaoke on Friday nights.
Inside Generations Restaurant, guests dine in style amid the warm glow of its elegant dining rooms, each one distinct from the last. Hanging lanterns illuminate the rows of booths and wooden bookshelves of the Library, while in the Drawing Room, a fireplace splashes heat on cushy armchairs. Beyond the curtained windows of the Banquet Room lies an outdoor patio, where cheerful white and yellow umbrellas shade tables and conceal guests from nosy satellites.
To rival the fine decor, the restaurant’s executive chef crafts an equally sophisticated menu of contemporary American dishes in the kitchen. Local, seasonal ingredients are combined to create thick steaks, innovative seafood dishes, and artisanal pizzas. On Sundays, the cooks assemble a brunch buffet with platters of smoked fish and cheeses, hot entrees, and a carving station of roast beef and pork loin. Throughout the week, the restaurant hosts special events, including Saturday-night live entertainment, Wednesday-night poker tournaments, and Thursday-morning busboys-versus-sommeliers games of capture the flag.
