Like the earth, a sandwich is made of layers and gathers its strength from its meaty core, which pushes condiments toward the crust to erupt and bury fingers in deliciousness. Let rivers of mayo magma run with today's Groupon: for $5, you get $10 worth of sandwiches, crêpes, and more at The New England Emporium.
This upscale eatery dishes out a unique menu of sandwiches, crêpes, salads, and sweets. Roll out of bed and onto the French Riviera with the Parisien, a ham-and-swiss crêpe concoction topped with a sunny-side-up egg ($5.50). At lunchtime, the grown-up grilled cheese ($6.75) graduates to the head of its culinary class when paired with the soup du jour ($3.50/cup, $4.75/bowl), and craftier sandwich-stuffers can build their own handheld marvels using a toolbox of between-the-bread fixin's ($6.95). Cool munching mouths with cups of Gelato Giuliana and watch this frozen superhero spring into action, satisfying sweet cravings and melting all over the tongues of injustice.
- The new eatery boasts a distinct look to go with its products. Industrial copper countertops and mismatched iron rails adorn the seating areas. Tables are made from refurbished work benches from Connecticut mills, pieces of old houses that have come down over the years hang above the doorways and a nearly-10-foot piece of aged driftwood from the Connecticut River hangs from the wall as an embellished stained-glass tree top floats above it. – Kelly Anne Gore, Middletown Press
- Great little lunch spot for a quick bite or longer get together or meeting. The menu has a little bit of everything...salads, soups, sandwiches, crepes...or you can customize your own. – Jill C., Yelp
