Today's Groupon to Eddie's Attic gets you $25 worth of succulent small plates, burgers, and beer for $12 at the popular rooftop-grill component of this renowned music venue. Hit up the rooftop to grab dinner and drinks before slipping into the listening room for a show (Eddie's has featured many big acts, including the Indigo Girls, India.Arie, and the Black Crowes) or gather with your fellow groupies to gush about your favorite chords (E-minor is so 1993). Though your Groupon is not valid toward concert tickets, you don't have to go to a show to enjoy food, drinks, and harmonious conversation with friends beneath the stars.

Zucca was founded by a trio of forlorn New York natives who longed for a taste of a thin, crispy-crusted, Staten Island–style pie. The results are presented on a menu dense with Italian delights. Starters such as crispy fried risotto and mozzarella balls ($7) and fresh bruschetta ($6.25) make satisfying meal bases for the award-winning pizzas. Pies are offered in two sizes—personal portions ($8+) or 18" discs ($13+)—and come customizable with more than 25 toppings, including bacon ($2), eggplant ($2), and roasted red peppers ($3). Specialty pies such as the expo-winning victory pie ($19 for 18" pie), a Margherita pizza with parsley sausage, mushrooms, and shaved parmesan, will tame topping negotiations, while hand-held calzones ($7–$9) and the extensive selection of popular pasta dishes ($10–$15) and entrees ($13–$21) are sure to delight.
Feasting, the favored pastime of kings, emperors, and celebrators of Thanksgiving, is a great way to gorge. With today's Groupon $20 gets you $40 worth of feast at Feast Restaurant, the Decatur restaurant Atlanta Magazine says has "the genuine enthusiasm and Southern-stamped hospitality of an owner who cares."
Carpe Diem relaxes diners in a tranquil, stylish lounge, serving upscale, elegant cuisine from Morocco to several Eurasian nations that don't yet exist. Monday through Friday, visitors can delve into tapas, such as lobster crostini, topped with caramelized onions, tomatoes, spinach, and a flavor-enhancing vodka butter sauce ($6). Those who like to dress their sandwiches up in a beret will adore the French-originating croque monsieur sandwich, which stimulates the olfactory nerves with its shaved pork loin and melty Gruyere cheese ($9). Wine-imbibers can revel in Carpe Diem's enormous collection of whites and reds, such as Washington Hills' Gewürztraminer ($6.50), while specialty drinkers can experiment with Carpe Diem's Carolina tea ($7), a sweet tea and vodka creation served on the rocks.
Mojo Pizza N' Pub has topped its signature New York-style sesame crust with house-made sauce since 1998. Each pizza is baked on a pizza stone, including the Muffaletta with pepperoni, smoked ham, olives, and pepperoncinis, and the Mardi Gras, which tosses smoked bacon, Italian sausage, peppers, mushrooms, and onions around the necks of enthusiastic onlookers. In addition to pizza, Mojo creates eight salads, such as Greek and chicken Caesar, douses chicken wings with teriyaki sauce, and assembles beef lasagna in house. Beers from 13 rotating taps join wine and cocktails behind the bar, whose libations complement slices both indoors and on the outdoor dog-friendly patio. Mojo Pizza N' Pub hosts trivia nights on Wednesdays and Thursdays, and plugs in an array of video games to entertain younger diners.
Carefully wrapped cuts of meat and sausages and encased salami fly over the deli counter at Rocco's New York Italian Deli as staffers craft the homemade Italian entrees that compose this traditional deli’s menu. Owner Adam Kahn draws upon his family’s recipes to craft a selection of meat, cheeses, and desserts available by the pound and savory dishes that burst with classic Italian ingredients like a tomato vine when rent is due. Almost every morsel is made from scratch, from the sweet crust of Grandma’s cheesecake to the homemade bread made fresh every morning to ensconce the deli meats in a selection of hot and cold sandwiches. The deli also sources some specialty items straight from Italy to showcase the country's flavorful pepperoncini, piquant Reggiano parmigiana, and tart limonata, lending customers a taste of authentic Italian treats without needing to install a gelato-cast statue of David.
