Eating while riding horseback was pioneered by the efficient Mongols, who also adjusted to reading, receiving haircuts, and filling out their taxes atop their four-legged mobiles. Enjoy the convenience of chairs and tables with today’s Groupon: for $20, you get $40 worth of seasonal, organic fare and drinks at Bussaco.

The Park Slope eatery sources its ingredients from local farms, serving up a menu of seasonally inspired cuisine for dinner and brunch within the comfy, oak-accented confines of its art-infused walls. Scarf up an order of Sardinian flatbread ($8) with arugula, preserved lemon, and marinated white anchovy, or try the beluga lentil soup with surryano ham ($7). A modest selection of brick-oven pizzas includes varietals both traditional (margherita, $7/$9) and inventive (such as the verdure, with smoked mozzarella, ricotta, garlic, peppers, and shiitake mushrooms; $10–$12). Main courses are equally inspired. Try the roast Amish chicken ($21) with veggies, caramelized-fennel puree, and thyme jus or the grilled dorade ($26). A signature cookie plate, teeming with Valrhona-chocolate brownies and coconut macaroons ($5), ends the meal on a sweet note that, for once, doesn't involve a cocktail being angrily thrown into either party's face.

Wines are available by the glass or bottle at Bussaco and run the gamut; a 2008 Caves de Cerca vinho verde ($6/glass) from Portugal will put you in the mood to sing mournful fados about husbands lost in shipwrecks, and a rose such as Provence's Mas de Gourgonnier ($11/glass) will remind you of that carefree summer spent backpacking across France in 1944. A stellar list of draft brews such as Brooklyn's own nut-brown, coffee-and-caramel Sixpoint Brownstone Ale ($7) and specialty sips ($8–$13) such as the Marconi (Aperol, fresh lemon juice, and Beefeater gin with a prosecco top), meanwhile, will appease the non-oenophilic. On weekends, stop in from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. for Bussaco's brunch, featuring sticky-sweet french toast ($10), granny-smith apple pancakes glazed in cinnamon butter ($12), and hearty eggs benedict ($12). Bussaco's understated neighborhood chic makes it a lovely location for first dates, casual economic summits, and Burton Gilliam autograph signings, so try all three with a trio of today's Groupon to Bussaco.
