This sophisticated yet casual restaurant and jazz club serves up an eclectic menu of tapas, gourmet pizzas, and sandwiches to the tunes of a rotating line-up of jazz and blues virtuosos. Amid the classic 1940's atmosphere of cozy seating, intimate tables, trenchcoated men mumbling about the Great Depression, and exposed brick walls lined with jazz memorabilia, create your own comestible set with the Blue Jean bruschetta trio ($10), starring provolone pesto, tomato vinaigrette, and mozzarella olive roasted pepper. Follow up with a gourmet thin-crust pizza, such as the classic margarita pizza ($15) or the Bianca Quattro formaggio ($15), smothered in alfredo, mozzarella, feta, ricotta, and gorgonzola. After you have used your Groupon for a savory dinner, saddle up to the throwback club's fully-stocked bar and prepare yourself for a night of dancing and ice sculpting.
While Mugs' main room welcomes spirited sports lovers with 14 plasma TVs and a 102" projection screen, its fiery flavorsmiths busily intensify the menu with fine cookery to save fans from mid-game famine. Prepare palates for kick off with Mugs' spicy tuna tataki, pan-seared sushi-grade tuna ensconced in cajun spices ($12). Spinach-stuffed ravioli ($11) appeases mouth mafias with payments of mozzarella, roasted garlic, and a choice of vodka, marinara, alfredo, or pesto sauce, and chicken marsala ($12) paints brilliant, wine-infused portraits of sautéed mushrooms onto waiting tongues. A lineup of 12 draft beers, including Newcastle, Stella Artois, Guinness, Blue Moon, and Coors Light ($3), ensure a mug-filled match to fit every ale-appetite, and frosty bottles of Heineken, Red Stripe, Coors, and Dos Equis wait to be emptied and re-purposed as purely decorative kazoos.
Boasting both a game-centric sporty beach pub as well as an upscale upstairs wine lounge, McSorley's caters to locals and tourists of all mindsets amid spectacular views of the Atlantic Ocean. Start a fancy night out on the second floor where the rooftop deck and a signature cocktail, such as the pomegranate martini ($10), will make you the envy of planes and underage sea birds. Or, take the party downstairs day or night to enjoy beers on the sundeck, which has an ocean view, an outdoor bar, and tables fashioned from Kentucky whiskey barrels.
Situated at the threshold of the historic Anglin?s Fishing Pier, Anglins Beach Cafe gives way to a sun-drenched, 975-foot-long boardwalk that bustles with anglers and sightseers from dawn to dusk. Outdoor diners are afforded panoramic views of the Atlantic Ocean, and the restaurant's interior proves no less idyllic: shaded booths abut the pier rails, and in the dining room, green tiles echo the hues of sea foam crashing against the shore. Considering that Anglins Beach Cafe is entrenched in the natural environment, it makes sense that its proprietors should take strides to preserve it. To that end, chefs draw upon organic greens, fruits, dairy products, craft beers from all over the world, wine, and organic tequila and vodka, and pack leftovers and stowaway mermen in 100% biodegradable boxes.
