A stove is like a muscle: warming it up is fine, but misusing it can cause permanent damage and cast a pall over dinner with your personal trainer. Leave the stove use to the pros with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of American fusion fare at Maggie Brown in Brooklyn.
Maggie Brown slays rampaging appetites with an expansive menu of American classics spiced with Cajun and Creole zest. Recover from a long night of wishing upon or angrily chastising the stars with a morning-friendly dish such as the Maggie Brown, an appetizing A-team of scrambled eggs, cheddar, chives, and horseradish ($9). Lunch munchers can sate midday cravings with classics such as the Maggie Brown burger, which comes with lettuce, tomato, red onion, and fries ($10), as well as the option to add a bevy of toppings such as jalapeños ($0.50), cheddar cheese ($1), and fried egg ($2). Mac 'n' cheese arrives at dinner tables sporting caramelized onions and topped with a layer of bread crumbs ($12), and the blackened catfish travels with a coterie of spicy red beans, greens, pickled onions, and remoulade sauce ($18). A menu of specialty cocktails includes concoctions such as the Maggie Brown cocktail, whose mélange of whiskey, watermelon, and lemonade is perfect for cooling mouths overheated from summer temperatures or high-speed stamp-licking contests.
A staff of local artists and activists lends the restaurant a cozy, neighborhood air, and diners can enjoy their rich repasts in the funky dining room, whose soft lighting, velvet flocked wallpaper, exposed brick, and elegant chandeliers conspire to create an ideal space for a romantic rendezvous or clandestine comic-book trade. A backyard dining area with an herb- and flower-studded garden surrounds diners with the fresh air and lush views taste buds naturally pine for.
