Though the "noble experiment" of Prohibition failed, other noble experiments, such as teaching horses how to shoot guns and giving suffrage to any horse that can shoot a gun, were huge successes. Celebrate the failure of the 18th Amendment with today's Groupon: for $20, you get $40 worth of steaks, salad, seafood, and more at McLoone's Woodbridge Grille in Fords.
Located inside of Favorites, the New Jersey Sports and Exposition Authority's off-track wagering facility, McLoone's fires off a full menu of stomach-comforting portions of steak, salad, seafood, and more. Start meals with the inebriated appetizer, a plate of drunken clams broiled in Corona, garlic, parsley, and butter ($11.95), preparing palates for the grilled carne asada steak, marinated in dried chilies and accompanied by an entourage of avocado, rice, corn, and zucchini ($19.95). Toast taste buds with the champagne salmon fillet, ensconced in jumbo lump crab meat and champagne cream sauce served alongside wild rice and julienne vegetables ($23.95). Hungry herbivores can try the Garden State burger, with grilled portobello mushrooms, zucchini, and red peppers, plus sundried tomato pesto and fresh mozzarella ($9.95). A fully stocked bar helps diners indulge in meal-complementing spirits and television sets at each table entertain via live races, NFL, NHL, MLB, and NCAA games, and death matches between cartoon cats and mice.
Restaurateur Tim McLoone has left his mark all over the culinary maps of New Jersey and Maryland with his numerous gourmet grills, which distinguish themselves from one another with unique menus and ambiances that hew to the same level of upscale elegance. Most of Tim’s restaurants set a lovely spread for Sunday brunch with made-to-order omelets, waffles, and a carving station with plump, tender hams. The network of eateries regularly lures hungry passersby during the evening with the aroma of grilled steaks and seafood, and a winning lotto ticket attached to a fishing line. Select locations are also visited by nightly entertainment. The decor at each dining hall is inspired by its surroundings: naval themes prevail at the coastal locations in National Harbor, Sea Bright, and Long Branch, while McLoone’s racing-themed restaurants are located within the off-track facilities in Fords and Bayonne.
