Welcome to Groupon, Brooklyn! For our inaugural deal, $18 gets you $40 worth of classic fare and drinks at Crow Hill Bistro, centrally located at 813 Nostrand Avenue with access to buses and the 2,3, and 5 trains. Since this is everyone's first Groupon, allow us to briefly explain how it works.
How Groupon Works
Groupon is a combination of the words group and coupon. Each day, we offer an unbeatable deal on the best of Brooklyn: restaurants, spas, sporting events, theater, and more. By promising businesses a minimum number of customers, we get discounts you won't find anywhere else. We call it "collective buying power."
If you want to get the deal, just click BUY before the offer ends at midnight. If the minimum number of people (20 for today's deal) sign up by the end of the day, you'll be emailed a gift certificate the next morning. You can print your Groupons, or redeem them with our iPhone app. Use them whenever you want until the deal expires—today's expires in six months. If not enough people join, no one gets the deal (and you won't be charged), so invite your friends to make sure you get the discount!
Hills and mountains are formed by vast underground food deposits, which, over time, stretch the landscape into soft mounds of untapped edibility. Dig into the bounty of surrounding geography with today’s deal: for $18, you get $40 worth of classic fare and drinks at Crow Hill Bistro. The restaurant is open six days a week during dinner hours (closed Mondays), with extended hours on Saturday and Sunday, and Sunday brunch served from noon to 4 p.m.
The varied menu unites soups, salads, and classic entrees in a culinary harmony unseen since the California Raisins dominated the airwaves. Kick off a foodfest with a Mediterranean plate ($7), teeming with olives, hummus, and a block of fresh parmesan, or another appetizer such as fried calamari ($8) or mini-burgers ($8). With you appetite successfully piqued, move on to larger bites, like the veggie-friendly penne primavera ($10), or make it meaty with chicken (add $3), shrimp (add $4), or salmon (add $5). Roasted chicken with mashed potatoes and green beans ($14), fish and chips ($12), and pan-seared salmon with garlic broccoli and rice pilaf ($16) help forge an entree lineup as rounded as a post-Columbus world. Cap off the feast by forking cakes crafted by The Sweet Spot.
Wall etchings of crowned crows, sea-foam-green accents, and sharp, white-clothed tables give the eatery a quaint feel to accompany the hearty meals gracing table tops. The homey atmosphere and homier brews of Brooklyn Brewery pouring out of the taps will keep you pleasantly cozied. Things that seem impossible on an empty stomach, such as skydiving straight into space, convincing your boss to trade spouses, and turning a recurring dream into reality by going back to high school and passing that chemistry exam pantsless, slide into the realm of the certain once you've dined to stomach-capacity at Crow Hill Bistro.
