Sitting down to a slow-cooked meal is preferable to dining on the go, a practice that only comes in handy during ill-advised picnics on the White House lawn. Linger over stationary feasts with today's Groupon to Restaurant Tyler in Starkville. Choose between the following options:

• For $15, you get $30 worth of Southern fare during dinner.
• For $7, you get $15 worth of Southern fare during lunch.

Mississippi native Chef Jonathan Thames culls the local terrain to serve up a menu of fresh, organic fare made from all-natural ingredients and house-cured meats. Much like a break-dancing cuckoo bird, Thames imbues classics with a modern twist, enticing palates with the corn-meal-battered catfish in a saffron bath ($14). The fried chicken dons a buttermilk-and-coconut cape and lords over a field of mac 'n' cheese ($16), and the beet gnocchi bursts with sautéed soybeans and sweet corn ($15). Lunch, meanwhile, proffers a peaceful alternative to high-noon showdowns with an assortment of sumptuously stuffed po boys ($9+), as well as belly-warming plates of bacon-wrapped shrimp and creamed grits ($17).


the catfish is not just battered with flour and eggs then fried. It's coated with West Point, MS pecans and covered in a tomato and saffron broth.
