Eating is necessary for human survival, along with breathing, sleeping, and remaining still while a curious velociraptor rummages through your closet. Practice survival tactics with today’s Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of American dinner fare at The Pearl Street Pub & Dirty Martini Lounge.
The skilled chefs at The Pearl Street Pub & Dirty Martini Lounge sling a diverse menu of crispy fried appetizers alongside a slew of sandwiches and hearty entrees. Patrons can master the complex lingo of dolphin squeak to order a shrimp cocktail ($9), before savoring the stringy cheesiness of fried mozzarella sticks ($5.50). The croque madame sandwich ($8) mingles melted pages of black forest ham, fried egg, and swiss between toasted brioche bookends. Entree seekers can bury forks in a slice of ricotta-filled lasagna ($11) slathered with zesty red sauce or opt for two seared pork chops ($17), which glide across a pool of applesauce like disoriented figure skaters at an orchard.
The Pearl Street Pub & Dirty Martini Lounge envelops diners in a sleek, casual ambiance. Wall sconces flank the pub's fully stocked, dark wood-paneled bar (alcohol not included with this Groupon), and a jam-packed schedule of weekly events, including karaoke and trivia nights, keeps patrons more entertained than a baby in a rattle factory.
