Cooking food over an open flame can impart smoky flavor and seal in savory juices, but cooking food over an eternal flame can get a bobsledding team kicked out of the Olympics. Get your fill of flame-cooked fare with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of steaks, seafood, pizza, and more at Mecca Supper Club in Edison Park.
Among mounted bucks and prize fish displayed on log-cabin walls, Mecca Supper Club caters to hearty appetites and carnivorous cravings with a hunting-lodge-style eatery. Edible adventures take seafaring beginnings with baked cherrystone clams casino, topped with peppers, garlic butter, and chopped bacon ($6.95), before mollusk mavens continue the nautical theme with a main dish of baked stuffed shrimp drizzled in rich hollandaise ($20.95). Skewers suspend tender morsels of beef alongside mushrooms and peppers in a palatable pond of gorgonzola dressing in the Mecca tenderloin kabobs ($19.95), and disk-shaped desires can be satisfied with a selection of homemade pizza and tempting toppings, such as an italian-beef pie with peppers, onions, and spicy giardiniera ($8.95 for a small; $14.95 for a large). Thursday through Saturday nights also offer live karaoke and dancing, so unlike the crowds at free-speech-stifling kindergarten recitals, audiences are encouraged to belt out the words to beloved oldies.
Mecca Supper Club
Hunting trophies and mounted fish line the interior of the woodsy Mecca Supper Club, whose log walls evoke the rusticity of a pioneer cabin. Its steak and pasta dinners and "lumberjack-style" breakfast buffet—which features housemade biscuits and sugar-cured bacon—sate country-style cravings by day. But by night, Mecca becomes a happening hub of entertainment, with a bar open until 2 a.m. Sunday–Friday and until 3 a.m. on Saturdays. Twice a week, amateur crooners and hard-partying blue jays step onto the stage, grab the mic, and pick from 10,000 songs during a karaoke-and-dance party that lasts until closing. Wednesdays' open mics invite musicians to band together for instrument-accompanied jams.
