Most modern cuisine is a continuation of classic dishes, just as a computer is a slightly modified typewriter and a washing machine is a river in a box. Revel in palatable progress with today's Groupon to The New England Emporium in Middletown. Choose between the following options:
• For $5, you get $10 worth of breakfast and lunch from opening to 5 p.m. Breakfast is served until 11 a.m. on weekdays and all day on weekends.
• For $10, you get $20 worth of dinner from 5 p.m. to closing.
The New England Emporium's menu blends the delicate tastes of café-inspired crepes with hearty breakfasts, simmering soups, and overstuffed sandwiches. Twelve signature sandwiches, such as the Chicken Curry Craze with mango chutney and dried cranberries in a garlic herb wrap, keep decision engines firing ($7.95), and seven savory buckwheat crepes—including the Marguerite with brie, oven-roasted tomatoes, and basil ($6.25)—unfurl into simple yet elegant entrees. Foodies of all ages can try one of four grownup grilled cheese sandwiches on parmesan-crusted country white bread ($6.95+) or pick from a slew of breads, meats, cheeses, and be the architect of their own bread-bracketed dreams ($7.50+).
Whipped up with fresh wheat batter, five sweet crepes, including the bananas foster ($6.75), satisfy sweet teeth all day long, and breakfast goodies such as apple-pie pancakes ($6.75), double-egg-and-cheese sammies ($3.25), and omelets ($6.75+), stick around until 11 a.m. weekdays, and all day on weekends. The New England Emporium can prepare all crepes gluten-free for those with sensitivities that don't extend to sparing gluten's growing sense of abandonment.
