The sea has much to teach us: its tides foretell the lunar cycle, its salt treats us to delicious shark jerky, and its colorful creatures prove that nature looks better in Blu-ray. Celebrate the big salty puddle's sagacity with today's Groupon: for $20, you get $40 worth of surf-and-turf cuisine and drinks at Red's Restaurant in West Coxsackie.
Red's Restaurant adorns its elegantly cozy, wood-accented confines with an experienced, personable staff and menus of succulent seafood dishes. Rev up lunch hungerings with Red's famous shrimp cocktail, a plump portion of delectable crustaceans straight from the Gulf that graciously jackknifes into a pool of homemade cocktail sauce ($7.25–$12.99), before spooning up a hearty bowl of new england clam chowder ($4.99) or partaking in tarragon-charged chews of Red's world-famous Maine lobster roll ($10.99). Dinner diners can set sail sans ill-fitting sailor suit with Red's shellfish linguine, bursting with shrimp, scallops, clams, and king crab all resting comfortably on a bed of linguine ($23.99), or the Maryland crab cakes, which nestle their way into watering mouths with jalapeño mustard sauce ($18.99). Aged a minimum of 21 days, the 12-ounce new york sirloin strip steak ($26.99) flashes its meaty ID at your taste-bud club, while the crispy roast duckling sates fowl fans with tender servings flanked in orange sauce ($23.99).
Complement a dish or midmeal poetry slam with a mawful of decadent dessert, such as Red's secret-recipe-clad creamy rice pudding ($4) or the toasted snowball, doused in toasted coconut, hot fudge, or hot caramel and topped with a walloping dallop of vanilla ice cream ($4.50). The wine list is vast, with red, white, and sparkling varietals available in glass, bottle, or carafe form, and Sunday brunch fuels the bellies of buffet fans and midmorning mealers ready to tackle the day's chores and constantly erupting mud volcanoes.
