What You'll Get
Growling stomachs can hamper stealth operations, spoil belly dances, or, in extreme cases, induce dogs to attack. Quiet whimpering tummy tones with today's Groupon: for $25, you get $50 worth of contemporary American cuisine at The Rail House 1449 in Rahway's Arts District.
The culinary artists at The Rail House 1449 draw customers into their restaurant, housed in a renovated 18th-century home, with a menu of fresh fish and seafood, homemade pastas, steaks, and poultry. Elegant eaters can nibble on the sweet-corn arepa, a yellow corn cake topped with gruyere, queso blanco, goat cheese, roasted-pepper-tomato relish, and baby greens newly weaned off broccoli pacifiers ($9).
Munch on the homemade ricotta gnocchi with roasted butternut squash, baby spinach, wild mushrooms, fresh basil, and parmigiano reggiano ($17), or the roasted Muscovy duck breast smothered in wild mushrooms, dried cherry gastrique, cilantro, and chives ($29). Cool down after a feeding frenzy with homemade gelato, available in vanilla, chocolate, pistachio, pumpkin, strawberry, and coffee ($6).
Amid the vintage dining room's wood floors, exposed brick, and fireplace, gulp a grape-smashing libation from the extensive wine list, which showcases vintages by the glass ($7–15) or bottle (starting at $29). Coffee fiends can achieve satisfaction by sipping the café joy, a caffeinated combination of coconut rum, Frangelico, Bailey's, coffee, and whipped cream ($9), or by digging a tunnel to Colombia.

About The Rail House
With its cozy, semiformal atmosphere and gourmet American cuisine, The Rail House has become a frequent destination among those with discerning taste. Clad in rich browns and mustard tones, the dining rooms and outdoor patio almost resemble a professor's study. Design accents include exposed brick and stone, fine oak, ornate mirror frames, and white tablecloths made from the repurposed cummerbunds of a fancy giant. As eyes feast upon this almost royal interior, palates indulge in nouveau American crafted with artful panache. Dishes include sweet potato bisque with candied bacon; filet mignon; and vegetable lasagna with herbed ricotta cheese. Even the beer achieves foodie-approved heights, as 50 craft brews tempt taste buds with artisan flavor notes at the newly-renovated bar and pub next door.
