Pub stands for public house, which stands in honor of the people, who stand as a testament to the power of functional femurs and adept Achilles tendons. Take part in pub-raised traditions with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of upscale pub fare and drinks at Caitlin's Green Eyed Grill, located across the street from Forest Park in Clayton.
Since its August 2010 debut, Caitlin's friendly staff and upscale pub fare have vaulted it onto the pages of Sauce Magazine and into the bellies of countless gracious guests. The pub's most storied edibles, the stuffed burgers, turn heads and whet appetites by boasting 12 ounces of beef packed with anything from bacon and feta to southwest-guacamole, tomato, and pepper jack cheese ($12). Aged steaks—including a 10-ounce New York strip ($14) and a 20-ounce rib eye ($24)—are made to order and arrive tableside with pairings such as tater tots, smashed potatoes, or slaw. For other palm-pleasing fare, snag an order of beef-wellington bites dressed with veal and scallion demi-glace ($9), or bypass the fangs by slurping a farmhouse cheddar-ale soup ($5 a bowl).
With a neighborhood-hangout vibe that some folks compare to that of the reality TV show Cheers, Caitlin's takes myriad measures to maintain its hospitable reputation. Visitors gather and gab over pints of Schlafly ($4) and, when needed, rounds of video game glory in the restaurant's abbey-like recesses. When plotting a publy outing, bear in mind that the pub closes its doors every Monday in honor of the countless victims afflicted by cases of the Mondays.
