Though security blankets, pacifiers, and bouncing on someone's knee are all comforting, these relaxation techniques are frowned upon when you are a full-size adult. Soothe yourself in a socially acceptable manner with today's Groupon: for $12, you get $25 worth of homemade comfort food at Strawberry Fair Restaurant in Norwell.
Strawberry Fair has been filling bellies with a comforting menu of breakfast, lunch, and dinner dishes since opening in 1975. Kick off mornings with a deliciously countrified french toast made with grilled-until-golden cornbread and served with bacon or sausage ($8) or an omelette customized with a variety of meat and vegetable fillings ($7+). Midday stomach whining can be silenced with a turkey sandwich dressed with stuffing and cranberry sauce ($9), a bowl of hearty clam chowder ($6), or shepherd's pie with seasoned ground beef, onion, and corn topped with mashed potatoes ($10). Chef Casey McKinley spares no expense with his selection of dinner specials that include grilled salmon ($18), pecan-crusted chicken ($17), and scallops boursin, a blend of fresh sea scallops, boursin cheese, white wine, and seasoned crumbs baked golden and snuggled up next to potatoes and vegetables ($20, price subject to change). Diners who manage to resist the urge to tackle main courses like ravenous cartoon tigers save room for freshly baked pies, cookies, and other delectable desserts.
The vintage tables and chairs, exposed brick walls, and knick-knacky décor make the 200-year-old farmhouse Strawberry Fair calls home as warm and inviting as a grizzly-bear grandma hug, and an outdoor patio decked out with umbrellas and flowers gives customers a pretty place to season their food with sunshine.
