What You'll Get
Since years of practice didn't make your mama's cooking more culinary than a can of Campbell's chicken broth, today's Groupon will fancy up your homestyle faves without the use of doilies and unwanted parsley sprigs, or "fool's grass." With today's Groupon, $15 gets you $30 worth of gourmet comforts and warming sips at Dunlays on Clark. Stop in the charming Lincoln Park eatery for laid-back culinary treats, or head next door to use your Groupon at D.O.C. Wine Bar for romantic flights of pinot fancy.
The atmosphere at Dunlays on Clark lays the foundation for your experience, with bold colors and lush textures that awaken your senses to a state of sensational sensing necessary to experiencing your sensuous meal. The juxtaposition of shiny hardwood floors against rough exposed bricks teaches you to notice the contrast of flavors present in the sweet dates stuffed with smoky chorizo and wrapped in perfectly salty bacon ($8). The vibrant yellow walls punch up the classy bar decor with pops of excitement, while the amber pendant lighting mimics the subtlety of a grilled artichoke dipped in remoulade ($8). Exude casual elegance on your next business lunch with a cheeseburger or veggie burger ($9 each), or bring your Southern-fed friends in for a full slab of barbecue babyback ribs ($22) and Mama Lou's meatloaf (made with ground beef, veal, and mushrooms with balsamic reduction, $14). But above all else, save room for the intense chocolate-chip cookie skillet, served hot and gooey in a cast-iron skillet with vanilla ice cream, just like cowboys eat on their birthday ($8).
While you dine, enjoy imports, domestics, and microbrews ($4–$11) at Dunlays. Or grab a glass of wine and pizza with aged pepperoni ($11) at D.O.C. Wine Bar while you cozy up to someone special in the flattering light of the fireplace.
Centerstage Chicago praises Dunlays' superb sustenance:
- Comfort-food dishes like sliced maple cured pork tenderloin with raspberry barbecue sauce and Mama Lou's meatloaf of fresh chuck and veal do indeed comfort.…but save room for the signature dessert: a to-die-for seven-inch chocolate chip cookie served hot in a cast iron skillet topped with ice cream and caramel and fudge sauces. – Colin Douglas, Centerstage Chicago
- If you're looking for a good meal and a nice glass of wine, try Dunlay's on Clark. They have very nice, somewhat upscale food for good prices. I've had the grilled chicken breast sandwich and it is always excellent. The fries are great... – Angie S., Judy's Book
- From the moment I walked in the door, I felt at home. The hostess was friendly and very accomadating [sic]. The service was impecible [sic] and the food was top notch. – riverdoc51, Citysearch
