Without pubs, coasters would wander the streets without purpose, attempting to wedge themselves under car tires to protect roads or disguising themselves as giant Tiddlywinks. Keep coasters where they belong with today’s Groupon to Mt. Chalet in Royal Oak. Choose from the following options:
• For $24, you get an American pub dinner for two, which includes two entrees (up to a $44 value) and one appetizer (up to a $10 value; up to a $54 total value).
• For $8, you get $16 worth of American pub fare and drinks at lunch.
Mt. Chalet's culinary wizards have been conjuring up hot meals and pumping kegs amid warm, wood-paneled walls for half a century. Hungry stomachs rumble over a dinner menu plump with premeal bites drizzled in thai chili sauce, such as flash-fried calamari ($8) or hand-breaded chicken wings ($6 for 6), which can also come dressed in garlic parmesan or Mt. Chalet’s house barbecue. The bone-in pork chop takes its time getting ready, first slow-roasting, then grilling ($20), and then applying makeup to match its buttered cabbage and whole-grain mustard-sauce jewelry. Meanwhile, knives slice into the 10-ounce prime sirloin Chalet house steak, which rubs elbows with sautéed spinach as garlic parmesan fries snap shots for culinary tabloids ($18). Build-your-own burgers of piedmontese beef ($9+) or ground turkey ($8+) pair well with a choice from the beer menu’s 11 draft and 30 bottled brews or a selection from the wine list. Diners can also partner their drinks with high-noon selections such as sandwiches ($5.95–7.95) or pistol duels.
