Following the disastrous failure of mac 'n' cheese hoodies, fluffernutter beanbag chairs, and blankets made of warm country gravy, scientists have determined that comfort food is most comforting when it's food. Today’s Groupon lets you cozy up to the culinary equivalent of a hug: for $20, you get $40 worth of contemporary comfort fare and drinks at McCoy’s Public House in St. Louis Park. This Groupon is only valid toward full-priced menu items, and may not be used toward happy hour or daily specials. However, it can be used for brunch.
McCoy's extensive menu pairs updated comfort fare for lunch, dinner, and weekend brunch with more than 55 barley pops, including Fat Tire, Boulevard Wheat, and Belgian-style Ommegang Hennepin Saison on tap. Complement a flagon of Rogue Dead Guy Ale with a starter of three soft, Bavarian beer pretzels ($6.49) sprinkled with rock salt and served with a “blue ribbon” cheese dip, or snorkel through a plate of crispy lobster spring rolls ($10.59) with Thai peanut sauce and plum chili. Herbivores and herbivoyeurs, meanwhile, will take heart in McCoy’s large selection of supper-sized salads ($4.99+), while inventive brick-oven pizzas such as the roasted vegetable ratatouille pie ($10.99) reimagine the classic disced dinner in a more rustic light. Entrees at the eatery are as decadent and diverse as the UN General Assembly's annual rave, and include the excelsior grand ($12.99), a smoked chicken-, bacon-, and green pea-loaded mac 'n' cheese. Hearty handhelds such as the 12-hour Reuben ($10.29)—corned beef brisket-, Swiss cheese-, and sauerkraut-filled beauty toasted between slices of marble rye bread—vie for your attention with the bleu cheese-encrusted beef tenderloin filet ($19.99).
McCoy’s sleek interior is dominated by rich espresso wood, plush booths, and brown leather-padded bar stools—creating an elegant atmosphere in which to linger over a warm chocolate croissant bread pudding ($5.99) with a Bailey’s Irish cream custard, or sip a Midnight Express martini while pondering the pros and cons of dating your clone. Help friends overcome their irrational hatred of Belgium with a few pints of St. Bernardus and a few plates of upscale edible comfort at McCoy's Public House.
- Very nice fresh thin crust pizzas. Roasted tomato soup the best. Very good beer selection - best selection of Belgian beers I've seen on the west side. – OpenTable reviewer who dined on 06/21/2010
