The sea has much to teach us: its tides foretell the lunar cycle, its salt treats us to delicious shark jerky, and its colorful creatures prove that nature looks better in Blu-ray. Celebrate the big salty puddle's sagacity with today's Groupon to Jenelle's Waterfront Café in New Haven. Choose between two options:
- For $7, you get $15 worth of seaside dinner fare and a free side item.
- For $5, you get $10 worth of brunch fare.
Nestled near the shore of the Long Island Sound, Jenelle's Waterfront Café slings fresh, locally caught seafood and classic American fare in an intimate seaside setting. During brunch, cheer on neighborhood rowers through mouths teeming with hollandaise-drenched grilled shrimp benedicts ($12.99), or sink teeth into one of Jenelle's savory or sweet crêpes ($8.99). Special omelets are made atypical every week and served with home fries, toast, and a complimentary megaphone ($10.70). For dinner, chow down with a serving of traditional clam chowder ($3.95–$6.95) before digging tiny forks into a 1/4-pound lobster ($17) netted by grizzled fish-fetchers just feet from the dock. Today's Groupon also rounds out robust dinner disks with a gratis side of potato salad, pasta salad, cole slaw, or corn on the cob.
A cozy outdoor patio overlooks the tranquil Quinnipiac River, and parched patrons can swig local Foxon Park sodas ($3) or tote their own spirits to gaze upon a stunning seaside sunset.
