What You'll Get
Restaurants offer diners both a delicious reprieve from the kitchen and a secure environment that makes it virtually impossible for the dish to run away with the spoon. Keep your eating implements obedient with today’s Groupon: for $25, you get $50 worth of Portuguese and New American cuisine at Maize in Newark. Located in the Robert Treat Hotel, just across the street from the New Jersey Performing Arts Center, Maize is a Zagat rated eating establishment serving beautifully presented food in a lush atmosphere. Tapas, lunch, dinner, and pre-theatrical menus offers meal options to suit every stomach grumble. A hearty hodgepodge of meaty steaks and chops are available, such as the lamb porterhouse with cheese grits ($28), as well as a briny bounty of ocean fare, including coriander crusted salmon ($25) or live lobster ($35), which customers select from a tank of competitors based on size, succulence, and inner beauty. Maize also offers a big selection of small plates and tapas; small plate options extend from 3 to 11 p.m. and include Portuguese mussels sautéed in garlic and white wine ($13), crab and avocado rolls ($13), grilled chorizo ($12), and cod fish balls ($8), spherically engineered to maximize chewing efficiency. Maize's atmosphere is warm and elegant, with a narrow corridor of white tablecloth-cloaked dining tables surrounded by eclectic accents, such as candelabras, Spanish-style pottery, and an elegant, lone piano.
