Restaurants offer diners both a delicious reprieve from the kitchen and a secure environment that makes it virtually impossible for the dish to run away with the spoon. Keep your eating implements obedient with today’s Groupon: for $18, you get $40 worth of classic American cuisine and drinks at The Majestic Café in Everett. The Majestic's décor celebrates Hollywood’s golden age of James Deans, Marilyn Monroes, and Burton Gilliams, creating a cinematic backdrop as patrons peruse a menu of classic American cuisine. Raise your stomach curtain with gorgonzola fries—crispy golden-brown shoestring fries bedaubed with a rich house-made gorgonzola cream sauce ($6.49). For the main attraction, chef Susan showcases her killer cooking chops with macadamia salmon ($18.99), pork tenderloin ($19.99), and 14-ounce New York strip steak ($25.99). Herbivores and herbivoyeurs, meanwhile, can delight in stuffed delicata squash packed with fresh sautéed vegetables and dappled with parmesan cheese ($14.99). For a digestif, knock back one of Majestic's menagerie of movie-star-monikered cocktails. Tippling cineastes can even choose between the Young Marlon Brando—an intense, muscular mix of Beefeater gin and Christian Brothers brandy chilled with a splash of vermouth and a lemon twist ($9.50)—and the Mature Marlon Brando—a hefty, demanding blend of Hennessey cognac chilled with a splash of lemon, heavy shadows, unflattering muumuus, and erratic behavior ($13).
The Majestic Café
At The Majestic Café, everything is homemade—even the ketchup. Proudly sticking to classics—with a few contemporary twists—it's been lauded by Open Table diners as a "neighborhood gem." The chefs work with small, local purveyors to source super-fresh ingredients that compose each dish. Menus unfold to reveal starters of crispy shoe-string fries drizzled with tangy, housemade gorgonzola sauce, and Majestic white bean and butternut squash hummus with toasted crostini. The signature french dip sandwich, lined with house-seasoned and roasted beef and shredded lyrics to "Da Dip," shares the spotlight with new york strip steak, fish and chips, and St. Louis ribs. Weekend brunch is offered to those who need their morning fix of huevos rancheros, spinach florentine scramble, or the Northwest benedict with housemade crab and bay shrimp cakes, all of which can be paired with bloody marys, screwdrivers, and greyhounds.
