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 $15, you get $30 worth of American grill fare at Willy Parkers in Williston Park.
Willy Parkers ignites hunger engines with its maw-watering menu of steaks, ribs, seafood, and more. Ease bellies into the edible evening sans mood music with savory starters such as the Maryland crab cake, accessorized with a fetching frock of corn relish and whole-grain remoulade ($12), or the truffle-salted tuscan fries, dusted with fresh herbs and parmesan ($6). Once internal bearings have been sufficiently lubricated, diners can dive into an array of enticing entrees, including the sweet, yet undeniably saucy honey-barbecued baby-back ribs ($21), the tenderhearted horseradish-crusted tilapia with hawaiian chutney ($20), or the cheesy, but well-intentioned baked lasagna ($13).
Alongside its dinner offerings, Willy Parkers also offers a delectable selection of brunch and lunch offerings. Mosey on in after a rowdy night of animal classification for a belgian waffle ($8), or stop by midday to grab a succulent skirt-steak sandwich with roasted-garlic spread and mozzarella ($15), or a fresh nicoise salad with seared tuna, braised root veggies, and champagne vinaigrette ($14). Pair a meal with a shippable from Willy’s beer and wine offerings, including an intricately stocked bar that taps into the hoppy veins of 24 brews.
Within Willy Parkers, cherry-colored wood tables and chairs invite diners to sit and feast upon a menu of classic American fare that spotlights local seafood, high-end cuts of meat, and free-range chicken. In 2011, the New York Times lauded chef Eric Engvaldsen's recently revamped menu, highlighting his cooked-to-order burgers, steamed mussels, and house-crafted desserts. As diners sup on Eric's eye-catching dinner dishes or peruse the late-night bar menu, an extensive beer list calms thirsts with plentiful hops and gently whispered bedtime stories.
