If humankind never learned to play with its food, it would never have learned to play with its ingredients, and the world would be one bereft bowl of gruel. Today's Groupon to Deleece Grill Pub or Deleece Restaurant celebrates our playful palates. Choose between two options:

Whether at the neighborhood pub or more upscale restaurant, Deleece's carefully crafted dishes and exposed brick walls create sophisticated, charming dining experiences. While other bars' steaks and beers wear T-shirts that hang past their shorts, Deleece's pub’s 10-ounce peppercorn-crusted hanger steak ($18), and Two Brothers Brewing's Ebel's Weiss ($5), wear blazers and indoor scarves. Fifteen hand-crafted whiskeys souse taste buds with flavor combinations as complex as Plato’s conception of the cosmos. At the restaurant, friendly servers know every centimeter of executive chef and Culinary Institute of America graduate Brandon Canfield's latest seasonal dinner and lunch menus, and they'll be happy to help you choose between the caramelized salmon with sticky black rice, spinach, leeks, and pear-ginger sauce ($18) and the Amish half chicken with fingerling potatoes, bacon, and celery salad ($16). During the sunny season, have brunch on the restaurant's outdoor patio while contemplating the beauty of passing dirigibles.
