Pubs are a great way to foster neighborly relationships, much like a public park or the neighborhood fountain of youth. Warm up to new friends with today’s Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of steak, sandwiches, and microbrews at MVP Grill and Bar in Highland Township.
NFL-emblazoned TVs flicker over the bar at MVP, where a close-knit cadre of sudsmiths and chefs sates stomachs with classic American grill fare and more than 30 microbrews. Inside the MVP quesadilla and most car engines, pulled pork sports house barbecue sauce and battered onion rings in a jacuzzi of chipotle dipping sauce ($9.99), and the Detroiter sandwich piles razor-thin garlic chicken, corned beef, and provolone cheese on asiago-infused bread, splashed with Michigan champagne vinaigrette ($7.50). A choice of spuddy sidekicks attend the 14-ounce new york steak, plastered with zippy portobello sauce ($17.99), and the all-inclusive chicken skillet hunkers down under a mound of artichoke hearts, fresh mushrooms, bell peppers, and a light cream sauce ($13.99).
MVP Grill & Bar
It's a familiar scene—plasma TVs glimmer with football games as friends clink frosty glasses of brews over animated conversations. Still, MVP Grill and Bar sets itself apart from the standard neighborhood pub with its lengthy menu of eclectic dishes, which range from hearty American classics to fine Italian specialties. Its chefs whip up their own sauces for tender barbecue and juicy sandwiches, while inserting fine cuts of meat and fresh seafood into pastas, quesadillas, and other specialties. Chefs also fire-roast their own housemade italian flatbread before layering it with gourmet vegetables and cheeses to craft tasty paninis.
To complement the chef's top-tier menu, bartenders pour pints from a selection of more than 30 microbrews. Sports knickknacks adorn the walls in the bustling dining room, and outside on the deck, tropical-straw umbrellas that shade the patio furniture create the atmosphere of a far-off island beach or the exotic-fish section of a pet store. Throughout the month, the eatery hosts special events—including live music, karaoke, and trivia nights.
