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.

The Bistro at Market and Grove
When shooting on-location, some extras and production-crew members for the movie Lincoln searched for a place with Southern hospitality in which to unwind between takes. They found it in The Bistro at Market and Grove—alongside a tapestry of Southern charm.
Nestled in a small one-story house, The Bistro's casually eclectic interior—self-described as "shabby chic"—is filled with charming antiques and other homey touches such as mismatched plates and birthday cards from other people's grandmothers. Each day, the dining room, bar area, and seasonal outdoor patio fill with culinary aromas that conjure both the European countryside and the coastal American south. The chefs add punch to burgers with toppings of artichoke or spicy sautéed shrimp, drape chicken in garlic or zesty orange sauce, and drizzle beef medallions in a glaze of brandy-peppercorn reduction. Though they often devise seasonal specials, they always showcase dishes based on their signature crab-cake recipe.
