Eating a hearty steak is a more kingly act than wearing a crown or banishing the dog to a small island in the South Atlantic. Get the royal treatment with today's Groupon: for $20, you get $40 worth of gastropub fare at Classic Jack's.
Classic Jack's beckons diners into its casual gastro-lounge to placate hunger cries with tapas, burgers, and eclectic entrees crafted from local ingredients. A small plate of beef satay tapas ($12) kicks off meals as diners share marinated meat served on a bed of crispy slaw, with tender morsels sliding onto skewers that double as abacuses to calculate each eater's portion. Signature gourmet burgers emerge from the grill to introduce palates to forkless fare such as the Louisiana Cajun ($14), an edible beef tower topped in white jalapeno jack cheddar, guacamole, and Cajun spices. Chefs marinate free-range organic chicken breast for Jack's Heart Smart entree ($16) and grill a sterling silver 8-ounce rib eye ($16) to each diner's preference. Like a candy whistle, desserts end meals on a sweet note with made-from-scratch eats such as Jack's apple pie ($8), a personal-sized treat baked fresh each order. To complement eats, patrons can sip draft beers as well as plan their dinners to coincide with Classic Jack's weekend lineup of live DJs.
