Eating out together is a much more efficient way to get closer to your friends than relying on gravitational pull. Stay upright while strengthening friendships with today’s Groupon: for $7, you get $15 worth of Italian specialties, American classics, and drinks at Boulevard Bar & Grille.
Splitting the difference between boot-shaped Italian fare and inherently patriotic American dishes, Boulevard Bar & Grille offers diners a hearty, varied menu that covers all three main meals. The BLVD Deuce burger ($9.95) arrives with a spare beef patty, a dollop of special sauce, and a choice of fries, slaw, chips, soup, or pasta, and the eggplant-parmigiana sandwich ($8.95) offers tomato-sauced sustenance for vegetarians tired of being the villain after eating entire community gardens. Start your day as sweetly rebellious as Danny Zuko with a serving of homemade crème brûlée ($5.95), or opt for a more traditional breakfast feast, such as the vegetable-laden frittata sandwich ($6.95), served until noon on weekdays and 1 p.m. on weekends. A smoke-free dining area ensures a clear-aired meal before ambling back to the strip to gamble on the fanciness of gamblers’ gambling outfits.
