Restaurants offer diners both a delicious reprieve from the kitchen and a secure environment that makes it virtually impossible for the dish to run away with the spoon. Keep your eating implements obedient with today’s Groupon: for $12, you get $25 worth of seafood, pasta, and more at Devlin's Restaurant in Brighton.
Devlin’s dishes out upscale cuisine in a friendly and casual atmosphere, pampering patrons with a menu stocked with innovative twists on traditional fare. Philly cheesesteak spring rolls come partnered with smoky chipotle sauce ($10), and lobster penne marries fresh seafood and pasta using a flavorful marsala cream sauce as both ring bearer and maid of honor ($23 for large, $14 for small). For a sharable snack that doubles as a flightless Frisbee, try a crispy pizza topped with prosciutto, fig jam, and blue cheese, with caramelized onions and arugula officiating the taste-bud tug-of-war between savory and sweet ($14). Though Devlin’s has convenient night-owl hours, the weekly Sunday jazz brunch lets early birds practice their sophisticated snaps whilst pecking at sleep-betraying orders of eggs benedict served with canadian bacon ($10) or soul-satisfying portions of challah french toast drizzled with Vermont maple syrup, served with bacon, sausage, or ham ($10).
While uncooperative seasonal shifts may prevent you from enjoying Devlin’s award-winning patio, plenty of good times await patrons within the brightly colored walls of Devlin’s dining room, playfully divided by yellow arches and green curtains. Fun-seeking diners can enjoy nightly entertainment, including Tuesday trivia nights, live jazz on Wednesdays, and beat-dropping DJs every Thursday through Saturday.
