The term “comfort food” refers to rich meals that fill people with nostalgia, such as their mom’s home cooking or their childhood crib made of fried chicken bones. Dig in to a plate full of memories with this Groupon.
$15 for $30 Worth of Barbecue Comfort Food
Named a "hidden jewel" by Phantom Gourmet, The Farm Bar & Grille serves a menu that includes homemade chicken pot pie ($14), seven types of half-pound Angus burgers ($6-$12), and half-rack of baby-back ribs, smoked slowly over local hardwoods ($16).
The Farm Bar & Grille
At its Dover location, The Farm Bar & Grille serves hearty plates of home-style food inside what else but a big red barn. But just as the familiar comfort food gives way to subtle surprises, the barn hides an 80-person outdoor deck, in full view of the Cocheco River. Yet, despite the picturesque vista, the best part about dining amid the fresh air might be the barbecue smell. A mammoth smoker rests just beneath the deck, releasing the aroma of slow-roasted baby-back ribs, fall-off-the-bone chicken, and pulled pork, piled onto platters and sandwiches or wrapped inside quesadillas and burritos.
Across the city, The Farm Bar & Grille pops up again, this time in Manchester. The menu is the same: half-pound burgers, sandwiches stacked atop Virgilio’s Bakery bread delivered fresh daily, and hearty comfort food, such as chicken pot pies and meatloaf dinners, and what NHmagazine.com calls the “Best Pulled Pork." Here, rustic furniture crafted, as NewHampshire.com discovered, from an old barn fills the cozy, red-walled space. A cute chalkboard mural of a moonlit farm hangs behind the bar, where servers offer 20 kinds of draft beer.
