With Congress passing a heavy new tax on right angles, circular edibles are becoming the most convenient way to keep food budgets from spiraling out of control. Nibble a delicious disc with today's Groupon: for $6, you get $12 worth of pizza, pasta, drinks, and more at Crossroads Pizza. Choose one of the restaurant’s three locations to redeem your Groupon: 68 North Main Street in Norwalk, 2212 Madison Avenue in Bridgeport, or 606 Boston Avenue in Bridgeport.
In 2001, the calzones, burgers, gyros, grinders, and cheesy pies that lived in the entrepreneurial dreams of then-college sophomore Mark Kalmanidis escaped and joined forces to create Crossroads Pizza. Inside the eatery, customers can send their tongue shopping for spaghetti and meatballs ($8.50) and their teeth can busily munch fried chicken served with french fries and cole slaw ($10.50). Or, choose to chew into one of the menu's more than 15 specialty pizzas—taste a small white pizza's doughy disc of ricotta, mozzarella, tomatoes, basil, and oregano ($9), visit a medium Hawaiian's ham-pineapple fusion ($12.99), or let a small vegetarian pizza refill your food pouch with an assortment of delicious nonmeats ($9.99).
