What You'll Get
Since the dawn of time, humans have used restaurants as a backdrop for wooing potential mates, reuniting with friends, and scaring delinquent eggbeaters straight by having a chef scream at them. Teach unruly kitchen appliances a lesson with today’s Groupon: for $7, you get $15 worth of Italian fare and drinks at Papa Joe’s.
Papa Joe’s sorcerer-chefs conjure a menu of timeless Italian dishes in a cozy setting that is both classy and casual. After raising your stomach’s velvet curtain with an antipasto platter of cheeses, peppers, olives, and tomato ($7.25), indulge in the shrimp scampi, which populates its garlicky olive oil ocean with crustaceans, green onions, tomatoes, and mushrooms over linguini ($9.25, lunch; $11.50, dinner). Patrons who prefer their food flat and round can adorn a custom Sicilian-style pizza ($3.95–$13.95) with more than 33 toppings ($0.35–$2 each), then chase it with a dessert of homemade tiramisu ($4.75). Papa Joe’s breakfast and Sunday brunch, however, give disk-shaped food a morning makeover with Papa Joe’s signature breakfast pizzas, which layer a.m.-amenable toppings atop cheese and scrambled eggs on a crust of freshly baked bread.
Like any good restaurant or bad operating room, Papa Joe’s exercises livers with an arsenal of margaritas ($4.75), mud slides ($4.75), draft beer, and microbrews ($3–$4). Papa Joe’s stone fireplace, parlor, patio, and couch-lined private den give professional daydreamers plenty of backdrops for sipping a micro roasted coffee from the restaurant’s new coffee shop, Papa’s Cup of Joe, while pondering humanity’s oldest question, “Does chameleon meat taste different depending on where you eat it?”
