What You'll Get
The dinner-and-a-show option has outlasted many less-successful date structures, such as dinner and a nap or brunch and community service. Find a perfect pairing with this deal to Alobar Restaurant and The Laughing Devil. For $35, you get dinner and a comedy show for two (up to a $90 value), which includes:
- Two large plates from Alobar’s menu (up to a $50 value)
- Two general-admission tickets to any post-dinner comedy show at The Laughing Devil (up to a $40 value)<p>
The night begins with a menu by Alobar’s executive chef, Ian Kapitan. His farm-to-table dishes cull locally grown and raised ingredients from within 200 miles of New York, though they stray far beyond farmers’-market staples: a large charcuterie plate piles up berkshire coppa and chicken-liver pâtè, and fried rabbit and roast pig roam pastures of seasonal greenery. Visiting soon after it opened, the Wall Street Journal noted that the restaurant “exudes two qualities co-owner Jeff Blath wanted to get across: warmth and comfort.” Indeed, Blath and his team labored for months to achieve an atmosphere of timeless Americana—strips of rough wooden lath line the ceiling, overlooking 19th-century advertisements and seating that recalls a midcentury high-school science lab where no one will yell at you for eating the experiments.
After dinner, pairs meander down Vernon Boulevard to The Laughing Devil to catch a rotating lineup of local and national comedians. Most shows pack the bill with at least six comics; upcoming performers include Myq Kaplan and Mike Lawrence. Customers enjoy laughs while sipping on 14 on-tap brews, which include a mix of craft, local, and imported beers.
