Though meals tend to bring friends together, meals peppered with magnets can push them apart. Enjoy an attractive repast with today’s Groupon to The Restaurant 03894 in Wolfeboro, New Hampshire. Choose between the following options:
- For $20, you get $40 worth of seasonal, local seafood and grilled entrees for dinner, served after 5 p.m.
- For $15, you get $35 worth of seasonal, local seafood and grilled entrees for lunch, served from 11:30 a.m. until 2 p.m.
The Restaurant’s head chef, Siobhan Magee-Bonaficio, unpacks deliveries daily from local purveyors, eschewing frozen ingredients in her recipes for fresh chicken, steak, and seafood. A busy grill works overtime, searing entrees such as Mill Street steak tips ($18) and a slew of handcrafted half-pound burgers, including the Elvis ($11), which, like the King’s white jumpsuit, comes stuffed with bacon and peanut butter. The New England clam chowder ($7) sates those on a gluten-free diet, and vegetarians spear veggie rangoons ($9) paired with house-made polynesian hot mustard and asian barbecue sauces. Groups conclude meals with s’mores, served tableside with a miniature flame, toasting forks, a basket of marshmallows, and complimentary choruses of “Kumbaya.”
With the cozy look of a Lake Winnipesaukee vacation house, The Restaurant’s dining room decorates its red-and-green walls with eclectic pictures, skis, and vintage signs, while an outdoor patio hosts meals in warmer months. Settled in the resort town of Wolfeboro, the restaurant is located within an easy stroll of the docks, so patrons can travel to meals by rocket-powered water skis.
