A marriage between two cuisines is preferable to a marriage between two clones of Sylvester Stallone, a process that eventually results in a baby reared on raw eggs and meat punching bags. Savor a simpler fusion with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of European cuisine and kosher-style deli fare at Meltzer Uptown Pub.
European cuisine and kosher-style deli fare harmoniously mingle on Meltzer Uptown Pub's eclectic menu, crafted by experienced restaurateur Brad Meltzer. The Meltzer's Combo ($10–$17; also available kosher-style) buoys half a corned-beef sandwich with fluffy challah before smothering it in provolone and mustard; its missing twin is replaced by a sizzling pastrami on toasty rye swathed in swiss cheese and russian dressing. The seared ahi tuna ($15) is slathered in scorching Far East sauce and flanked by sautéed cabbage and pan-fried rice, and a 10-ounce serving of chicken-fried New York strip steak ($15) smolders beside a bed of mashed potatoes topped with cream gravy and miniature pillows.
Meltzer's ensconces diners in an inviting environment adorned with burgundy-shaded seating as well as whimsical décor and flat-screen televisions. The atmosphere is regularly infused with sultry serenades from live musicians and scatting cockatiels.
