The monopoly tycoons of the 19th century traditionally did their wheeling and dealing at fine-dining establishments, cleverly concealing the fact that they still lived with their parents. Enjoy a unique twist on fine cuisine with today's Groupon: for $30, you get $60 worth of Neo-Southern fare and wine at Stove in Portsmouth. Parties are limited to six or fewer and guests must call ahead to make a reservation, as the dining room has only nine tables.

Chef Sydney Meers uses fresh and local meats, seafood, and produce to craft his eclectic Southern menu—down-home Mississippi cookin' with international flair. Experience Stove's signature blend of classic and innovative elements with a large-course jumbo flounder ($25), served with crisp pork belly on a bed of local root vegetables and red onions in a tomato, shallot, and herb shrimp reduction thickened with heat and positive verbal reinforcement. The pork-o-rama barbecue ($12, $23) features a porky foursome of Darden Farm's country ham, sausage, house-made "smoochie bear ham," and slow-roasted pork belly enthroned atop purple potatoes and hubbard squash with 42-ingredient house barbecue sauce. Vegetarians can feast upon the seasonally-influenced Stove-o-tarian, an ever-changing dish overflowing with seasonal plant flesh (price is based on market values). Diners can wash down fare with a bevy of wines by the bottle and red and whites by the glass ($7.50–$9).

The white-clothed tables of the dining room nestle intimately inside cool seafoam-green walls, which sport galleries of the owner's outsider art.
