Meatloaf and mashed potatoes have always gone together, like rock and roll, yin and yang, and bald eagle hatchlings and William Howard Taft's toupee. Introduce your mouth to a dazzling duet with today's deal: for $10, you get $20 worth of Uptown comfort cuisine at Blue Star Cafeteria in the Rosedale neighborhood.

Blue Star Cafeteria specializes in contemporary comfort cuisine that is served at an expansive uptown location. The lunch menu, available Monday through Saturday starting at 11 a.m., gets a running start with appetizers such as crispy artichoke hearts cozying up to anchovy dipping sauce ($7.95). Meat-lovers with a penchant for grinders can sink their canines into the cafeteria meatloaf, which, unlike school-cafeteria "meat" loofahs, is made with ground chuck and served with mushroom gravy, mashed potatoes, and broccoli ($12.95). Bullfighters sporting bowl cuts will find common ground for dinner (Monday through Saturday from 5 p.m. to 10 p.m.) with an array of pasta bowls, including roasted corn bisque with chicken and farfalle pasta ($14.95). Sunday drivers and Saturday power-walkers can make munchable memories with brunch (Saturday and Sunday from 10 a.m. until 3 p.m.), thanks to dishes such as the open-faced egg sandwich layered with scrambled eggs, spinach, and bacon on grilled marble rye with a goat-cheese bow, and sidekicked by cheddar-cheese grits ($9.95).

The cool tones of Blue Star's modern interior are accented with splashes of bright color to give this villa of victuals a pleasing vibe and cause the vague, nightmarish memories of elementary school cafeterias to fade into the natural mood lighting. Seating is a delightful grab bag, with options including booths, tables, and a long counter, as well as an outdoor patio. Locally owned-and-operated by Eddie Bernal of 34th Street Café and Santa Rita Cantina, this cafeteria is a sure-fire bet for comfy comestibles.

Not valid on alcohol. Dine-in only.
