A romantic dinner by a roaring fire is best enjoyed in a restaurant and not around the neighbor's emblazoned wicker man. Retain your amorous appetite with today's Groupon: for $22, you get $45 worth of upscale American fare at JG's Tarentum Station Grille.
Inside the historic Tarentum station, JG's chefs colonize unexplored stomachs with a menu of upscale American cuisine. Coated in seasoned butter and chucked into a cast-iron skillet, the Pittsburgh-style new york strip steak conceals a deliciously pink core far below the flavorful, charred crust ($21.99). The cedar salmon, seasoned with oriental spice, broils atop the very cedar plank on which it was caught snoozing, buttressed by a side of ginger and plum wine relish ($16.99). To create the shrimp louie, sacrificial artichoke hearts and roasted red peppers simmer in garlic butter and lobster sauce beneath a blanket of crab meat ($18.99). Twin center-cut pork chops come slathered in a mushroom and roasted shallot demi-glace ($17.99), and the chicken gabrielle casts tasty chunks of sautéed bird into a sea of mustard and marsala wine sauce with sundried tomatoes and pine nuts ($16.99).
Inside, the bar's five flat-panel TVs mesmerize eyes, garnishing the oldfangled atmosphere with a sprig of modernity. JG's outdoor patio seating allows guests to better appreciate the summer weather while they busily convert plates of food into empty plates of food.
