Almost as pleasurable as a restaurant's food are the little rituals that go along with it: perusing the menu, anticipating the meal, and hiding under the table and grabbing passing waiters by their ankles. Drink in the whole experience with this Groupon.

Chris Geideman’s resumé includes nearly every restaurant-industry job imaginable—cook, bartender, general manager, wine sales, bar manager, sous chef—and it’s a career that very easily could never have happened. He got into the industry accidentally, after agreeing to cover for a friend at his dishwashing post one night. A quarter-century later, Chris is the executive chef and owner of Crew, a comfort-food bistro with dishes that can be prepared as small plates or full entrees.
The dining room is simply adorned with white linens draped over tables and a mustard-colored booth that runs continuously around the room. But guests shouldn’t let that deceive them—as the New York Times noted, “the low-key atmosphere doesn’t telegraph how creative the menu is.” It’s fitting that a man with such flexible talents has created a menu that covers a lot of culinary ground. One dish might carry an international elegance—roast-chicken paillard with tomato-caper confit—and the next may have an American ease, such as the skillet burger with homemade kettle chips.
