Cuisine is more memorable when enjoyed somewhere historic, such as the first McDonald’s or the Mardi Gras–themed eatery that impelled Thomas Jefferson to purchase Louisiana. Feast in a historic building with today’s Groupon to the King George Inn. Choose between two options:
- For $25, you get $50 worth of fine American cuisine for dinner.
- For $10, you get $20 worth of fine American cuisine for lunch.
The culinary sovereigns at the King George Inn sate the hunger pangs of all those who enter their domain with toothsome American fare depicted on the lunch and dinner menus, served in a historic building constructed in 1756. Midday munchers can delve into the seafood layers of lobster-and-shrimp crepes interlaced with mascarpone cheese ($13.95) or brandish forks to gleefully capture the chicken dijon with fettuccine with pasta-loving prongs ($10.95). For dinner, reward valorous stomachs for their emotional and abdominal support with tender veal piccata medallions flash-sautéed in lemon-caper butter ($21.95). Or sharpen mouth bones on the Dorneyville Sizzler, a 12-ounce premium-gold Angus New York strip steak gilded with maître d’ butter and served on a blazing-hot pewter plate to discourage entree burglars and hungry snowmen from snatching the precious dish off tables ($31.95). Top off tuck-ins with a treat from the dessert menu, which bursts with renderings of house-made cheesecake ($6.95) and chocolate mousse ($5.95).
The King George Inn was built during the French and Indian War and has been used as a tavern, a town hall, a church, and a clubhouse for wigged ghosts in tricorn hats. Bask in the cozy glow of one of the inn’s two fireplaces or partake in alfresco bread-breaking in the outdoor café. Like Independence Hall and Benjamin Franklin's baseball-mitt factory, the King George Inn has been designated a national historic site.
