Eating while on horseback was pioneered by the efficient Mongols, who also adjusted to reading, receiving haircuts, and filling out their taxes atop their four-legged mobiles. Enjoy the convenience of chairs and tables with today’s Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of fresh, upscale fare at The Riverstone Grill, located on Grand Island.
Executive Chef Chaz Bulera and his team fashion dinner and lunch menus out of selectively sizzled meats, fish, and pasta. Lunch fare, such as a pulled-pork sandwich ($8) and a buffalo-chicken wrap with its coif of blue cheese ($9) effortlessly shame standard sandwich-shop selections. The dinner menu kick-starts appetite engines with sesame-seared ahi tuna ($9) and subtly seasoned calamari ($7) before revving them lightly with a portobello-pesto sandwich ($8) or heavily with a bacon-wrapped filet mignon ($21).
The Riverstone Grill was featured on the Travel Channel's Man vs. Food, when titular man Adam Richman took on Riverstone's "The Bone in the Stone," ($36) a gigantic steak that, when eaten entirely, gives its devourer the ability to see through walls as well as digest them. Use today's Groupon to stake out steak bliss or catch a ride on a euphoric tuna.
