Winston Churchill was famous for the high standards he applied to alcohol, quipping that "Liquor is quicker, but get me a single malt scotch with moon rocks in it! I'm the English president!" Be like Ol' Winnie with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of classic American cuisine, drinks, and sporty viewings at River Bar & Grill, a Hell's Kitchen hub for athletic enthusiasts.
River mixes a sports-bar atmosphere with classed-up bar and grill fare. Starters such as lobster sliders ($12) and warm bruschetta served on toasted baguette ($8) warm up mouth muscles before engaging in heartier handhelds, such as the veggie wrap ($9) stuffed with mixed vegetables, the pizza burger ($10), or the decadent Kobe-beef burger ($15). A modest menu of hot dogs includes the standards, such as the classic Coney ($10), and more inventive options, such as the Dorito-topped dog ($9), which consolidates two sporting-event eats into one easily consumed package.
From soccer to baseball to leaf-burning competitions, River offers patrons one eyeful of high-intensity sports action. The Yankees- and Mets-friendly establishment attracts a crowd of sporty types, night owls (River is open until 4 a.m.), and meat fiends who would be willing to part with a loved one's earlobe for a fix. Pair bar fare with bar beverages such as a wine from River's extensive wine list or suds. No reservation is required to redeem this Groupon.
