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 ($715) or bottle (starting at $29). Coffee fiends can achieve satisfaction by sipping the cafe joy, a caffeinated combination of coconut rum, Frangelico, Bailey's, coffee, and whipped cream ($9), or by digging a tunnel to Colombia.
