After properly cooking a lobster, its once-brown exoskeleton turns bright red, letting chefs know that it's both ready to serve and profoundly embarrassed for showing up without pants. Make a meal of deliciously mortified seafood with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of fresh seafood and more at The Rum Runner Inn & Restaurant in Lunenburg.
The Rum Runner plates innovative seasonal delicacies amid the charming vistas of a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Fresh seafare sits aside landlubbing vegetarian and meat dishes on the bountiful lunch menu, which includes local treats such as Lunenburg scallops wrapped in bacon's loving embrace ($12) and Atlantic fish cakes ($11). Dinners run the gratifying gamut from cordon-bleu pork schnitzel ($20) to a fresh almond-crusted haddock fillet ($19). With the seafood Sensation dinner for two, evil-genius duos and ordinary duos can share heaping helpings of lobster, tiger prawns, salmon, and rice timbale ($54).
Indoor diners marinate cerebellum centres among hanging plants, delicate curtains, and expansive mirrors of the Lunenburg harbour. A lengthy patio and oversized umbrellas enlarge the comforts of outdoor feasting without subjecting guests to the sun's judgmental glares.
