Barbecuing is a distinctly American art form, much like listening to jazz music and feigning an understanding of jazz music. Celebrate patriotic cuisine with today’s Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of upscale comfort fare for dinner at Kitchen 2404.
Within a two-level lounge blending rustic wood grain with gleaming, modern fixtures, Kitchen 2404's menu of Mississippi-style barbecue and Southern-themed drinks transports palates to austral climes. Classic mac 'n' cheese dresses up a childhood favorite like a leather-bound Speak & Spell as it dons a gourmet cloak of caramelized onion béchamel beneath slivers of grana padano ($9), and saucy barbecue pork ribs act as a sizzling awning to shelter house-cut fries and crisp coleslaw ($13 for a half slab). Bread-bundled helpings abound, and UrbanDaddy sings the praises of the towering Pit burger, a "controlled collision" of pulled pork, Angus beef, and slaw nestled beneath a fried egg ($13).
