Groupons, of course, are designed to have two principal advantages. The most obvious one is that they save you money. The other advantage is that they encourage you to try new places (surely the main reason businesses offer them). So Barbara and I went to the Fox and Hound in Quincy last night, as we had a substantial Groupon for it, costing us only $30 for $60 worth of food. It was well worth it.
Barbara had a caprese salad that she raved about, followed by filet mignon, first-rate mashed potatoes, and a nice vegetable medley. I had an excellent Caesar salad, roast duck that was prepared just right, really good onion rings, and the aforementioned vegetable medley (which was corrupted by cauliflower but otherwise worth eating and not overcooked). A fine (but not too pricey) Seghesio Zin, competent strawberry shortcake, and good coffee rounded off the meal nicely. No espresso, sad to say. If it sounds like too much food, you’re right, it definitely was…but leftovers are a Good Thing.
There’s plenty of parking. And our server Morgan deserves a shout-out for excellent service!
We’ll be back.
