New England Emporium [CT]

Had a nice lunch today here at the New England Emporium with another groupon, another meal, another bargain, another deal. One Curry Craze [$7.95] Curried chicken salad with mango chutney & dried cranberries, lettuce & tomato in a garlic herb wrap and my Emporium Cutlet [$7.95] Chicken cutlet, provolone, lettuce, tomato, roasted peppers, basil mayo on a hard roll. Both came with a bag of chips and were delicious; one homemade lemonade and a coffee. Neither of us had to pay anything [coupon: $5 for $10 of food].

Is there any room for another restaurant on Main Street in Middletown? Well, this one is a keeper! Ate late lunch here today at the New England Emporium Eatery and Marketplace @Main Street Market.

Ordered one of the three daily sandwich specials and lucked out. One special was already gone and mine was erased from the board just after getting it. It was about 2:45 though. Order at the counter but don't get into line right away until you have read the exhaustive menu offerings. Wow what a choice: sandwiches, crepes, salads, soups, sweets and so on.

I had the Grilled Baked Ham, Gouda and mustard on cranberry bread. This came with a bag of chips. Also had a bottle of Mango Moonshine from a Vermont bottlery [that's a word, right?]. Was using a Groupon [$10 worth of food for $5] so added a cup of Vanilla Gelato to get it over $10. Had to take the gelato home as the sandwich was huge and rich.
