One of Benjamin Franklin’s last theories was that taking in a good view while eating aids both in digestion and in the ability to squeeze milk out of coal. Prove him half-right with today's Groupon: for $8, you get $16 worth of steaks, chops, seafood, and drinks at The River Room Restaurant.
Overlooking the Fox River, The River Room Restaurant appeases appetites of all sizes with a mouthwatering menu of succulent delicacies. Inaugurate a dinner with friends, coworkers, or a selection of porcelain dolls with the chilled shrimp martini, which drenches skinny-dipping crustaceans in a horseradish cocktail sauce ($7). The potato-crusted cod ($14) halts hunger with a flavorful barricade, and the chicken 'n' bacon alfredo ($14) entrances taste buds with the hearty harmony of an edible Sonny & Cher concert.
Dappled in soothing blues and ornamented with stained-glass renderings of an old schooner and captain's wheel, The River Room Restaurant maintains a nautical theme ripe for a seafaring bite to eat or ordering entrees in Morse code.
