A perfect table setting requires pristine linens and polished cutlery, except at off-Broadway restaurants where waiters set every table in postapocalyptic Vienna. Avoid avant-garde eating with this Groupon.

Mike’s Rigatoni Bistro
Mike’s Rigatoni Bistro is a hub for authentic Italian and Greek cuisines, including house-made pasta entrees and dishes cooked with ouzo, an anise-flavored apéritif that symbolizes Greek culture. Meat specialties span flavors from opposite sides of the Mediterranean: the Grecian-style myconos chicken lazes alongside sun-dried tomatoes, fresh oregano, and Kretikos wine, and the Italian-style milanese chicken scaloppini sports homemade parmesan-herbed breadcrumbs and veal demi-glace. Pasta entrees include noodles drenched in clam sauce or the lasagna al forno, stratified with meat sauce, ricotta, and house-made sausage to lend the plate more layers than Dante’s famous disco inferno. Comfortable red booths ensconce guests as Old World wreaths and curios recall a rustic country villa.
