Taste buds can easily turn into viciously passive-aggressive taste frenemies without proper attention. Keep your tongue from gossiping behind your back with today's Groupon: for $7, you get $15 worth of Italian and American fare and drinks at Big Apple Eatery.
At Big Apple Eatery, diners chow on pizza, pasta, sandwiches, and salads amid a bushel of apple-themed décor and panoramic photos of New York City. Wings, available in orders of 10 to 50 ($6.75–$26.99), emerge as nuggets of bold flavor when dressed in any of 15+ sauces, such as honey barbecue, teriyaki, or the hot, garlicky Johnny-Style. Instead of putting helpless celery stalks at risk by throwing darts in the kitchen, chefs fling beef, tomatoes, black olives, sour cream, cheddar cheese mix, and scallions at dough to create the 14-inch South Bronx taco pizza ($15) and other savory pies ($5–$17.95). The herbivore-friendly foot-long eggplant-parmesan sandwich ($7.50) and veggie lasagna ($6.99–$8.99) allow hungry brontosaurs to break their famines. Patrons can end meals with a Big Apple pie ($3.99) and its a la mode alter ego ($4.99), as well as a communal chug in the form of a half-carafe of house wine ($6.25) or pitcher of domestic beer ($6.75).

Apples Bar & Grill
With its entrees named for New York City landmarks and the decorative fruit dotting its walls and tables, Apples Bar & Grill embraces its name. Pizzas, such as the South Bronx taco and Wall Street White, join salads named for Central Park and Madison Square Garden, alongside Big City chili, Broadway chef salads, and a selection of breakfast items. Beers such as Budweiser—which is what the Dutch called Battery Park—pour from taps behind the pennant-strewn bar, complementing cheese fries and crab poppers during special events such as karaoke nights and live performances from local musicians.
