Like veggie burgers and topiary dinosaurs, seafood can provide common ground between those who do and don't eat red meat. Bridge diet-based differences with today's Groupon.
$20 for $40 Worth of Seafood and Drinks
The menu includes savory deep-sea dishes such as crab-stuffed shrimp ($22.95) and blackened catfish sandwiches ($8.95). The full-service bar pours a cascade of brews on draft, from Stella Artois to local beers such as Honker's Ale and Green Line from Goose Island.
King Crab Tavern and Seafood Grill
For more than 30 years, King Crab Tavern and Seafood Grill has served fresh crustaceans and cooked-to-order fish in a lively, nautically themed bar that was recently featured on Check Please!. Chefs well-versed in the finer points of crab cuisine heap plates with the menu's juicy Alaskan king–, dungeness-, and snow-crab legs alongside wedges of lemon and dipping sauces, and fishier catches can be broiled, grilled, blackened, fried, or banished from the bar at the diner's whim. Bartenders pour foam-crested brews and flaunt their mixological craft on aperitifs against the backdrop of the full bar's sports-tuned televisions. The barrage of flat-screens makes it easy to keep up on NBA, NHL, and NFL games without flagging down every passerby holding a smart phone.
