Hungry stomachs are forced to contemplate cooking their own food while our brains are busy plotting ways to make Hollywood starlets fall in love with our ungainly cousins. Quell an insurgent appetite with today's Groupon: for $9, you get $18 worth of pub fare at Center City Bar & Grille, located downtown. Today's Groupon is not valid toward alcohol, and Center City Bar & Grille is closed Sundays.
Passersby peer through Center City Bar & Grille's window to spot hungry carousers noshing tasty, high-end pub dishes during lunch, dinner, and into the wee hours. A delectable blend of southern favorites and homemade touches pepper the menu. Douse the fried green tomatoes ($5) into their homemade ranch dipping sauce before consuming the succulent Southern fried chicken breast ($9), served with garlic mashed potatoes, collards, and onion gravy. To practice simple hand-beef coordination, pick up the Old Southern Favorite burger ($5.75) with homemade pimento cheese, bacon, and fried green tomato, or try the fish and chips ($12), served Southern-style. Many finger-lickin' specials rotate daily, so don't hesitate to solicit a knowledgeable server for the rolodex.
In Center City Bar and Grille's space, a dazzling chandelier is flanked by lipstick-red brick walls and a mosaic tile bar with corrugated steel siding. The welcoming atmosphere and virtually round-the-clock kitchen schedule bestows Center City with a variety of vivacious personalities; Wednesday nights welcome a rollicking karaoke crowd, while an array of big screens tantalizes sports fans on game nights.
- But the sandwich deserves a few words: a tender and lean ribeye spilling off of the bun, an exquisitely spicy and smoky barbecue sauce, an inch of crispy-fried onions piled atop. It is magnificent, and I am unable to stop jamming my face into it long after my stomach is full. – Brian Clarey, Yes! Weekly
