J. Marinara's, formerly known as Ascolese's, employs a staff of culinary craftsmen to create a throng of Old World dishes that flaunt East Coast Italian ingredients such as aromatic garlic and sweet tomatoes. Diners can begin with a crunch into a crusty grilled bruschetta, or steam away painful memories of Chutes and Ladders losses with a piping bowl of zuppa di mussels. After artfully arranging vegetables for two side salads, the chef tucks cheese filling into homemade tortellini satchels, simplifying dairy delivery to mouth compartments. Forks can ascend a mountain of linguine in hopes of reaching a juicy, breaded chicken parmesan summit, or bust open plump ravioli pillows to discover 100% real lobster, fang bait left behind by the only the wisest of tooth fairies.
Grab a seat by the fireplace, or sip on a selection from the full bar in the outdoor dining area. If a single plate of pasta ignites a newfound culinary fixation, ask a server about take-home bottles of their house-made sauce, available for purchase (not included with this Groupon) and a flavorful complement to any bare linguine or minimalist wall hanging.
