Contrary to popular belief, when the moon hits your eye like a big pizza pie, that's a lawsuit. Enjoy Italian cuisine without fear of physical reprisal with today's Groupon: for $12, you get a pizza dinner for two at Panico's Brick Oven Pizza in New Brunswick (a $25.40 value). This Groupon is valid only at the 94 Church Street location. The pizza dinner for two includes the following:
- One French Street 16-inch cheese pizza (a $15.95 value)
- One large house salad (a $6.95 value)
- Two fountain drinks (a $2.50 value)
Panico's culinary crew artistically plates a menu laden with scrumptious brick oven pizzas. The pizza professionals harness the power of heated stone to creating pies that emerge from the brick-oven volcano as smolderingly as William Baldwin from a hotel sauna. As eaters eagerly await the pie's arrival, they can distract their taste buds with a house salad laden with fresh vegetables and quick sips of refreshing carbonated beverages. The restaurant's welcoming digs surround guests with the warming elegance of a king's blanket fort, while outdoor seating proffers dining atop a cobblestone sidewalk.
Inside an expansive dining room, servers float between elegant table settings carrying Italian dishes that have earned various accolades since Panico’s inception in 1987. Below the diffused light of wall sconces, conversations buzz along the expansive leather banquette as vodka-sauce penne, pan-seared lamb, and seafood-stuffed ravioli make their way from the kitchen. Diligent servers painstakingly debone the grilled whole fish of the day tableside before pouring bottles of red and white vino from the extensive wine list. To conclude meals or inadvertently incite stooge-level food fights, they serve a lineup of desserts that includes Italian sorbetti, amaretto cheesecakes, chocolate-chip cannolis, and apple and pear cobblers.
