After decades of study, researchers have determined that menus boasting a wide array of culinary choices are more popular than those dedicated to dry toast. Sample a variety with today's Groupon: for $17, you get a three-course pizza dinner at Pete's Pizzeria & Restaurant in Bayside (up to a $36.80 total value). The three-course meal includes:
• Any extra-large gourmet pizza (up to a $20.95 value), or an extra-large regular pizza (a $13.95 value) with up to two toppings (up to a $5 value).
• An order of mozzarella sticks (a $5.95 value).
• A basket of chicken wings (a $6.95 value).
• A 2-liter of soda (a $2.95 value).
Dishing up more than just pies, the pan-cultural cooks at Pete's Pizzeria & Restaurant serve a menu of Italian, Greek, and American favorites. Hungry diners can rev up their stomachs with six gooey mozzarella sticks and a seven-piece basket of chicken wings, available plain or slathered in a hot, sweet-and-spicy, or barbecue sauce, ideal for placemat finger-painting. Then appease cavernous appetites with a regular extra-large pizza, sprinkled with up to two toppings such as eggplant, jalapeños, or pineapple. The gourmet extra-large pizza lets diners dive kisser-first into innovative varieties such as the lasagna pie, which stacks marinara sauce, ricotta, and mozzarella cheese onto a doughy foundation before adorning it with ground beef. Finally, a 2-liter bottle of soda acts as a fizzy volcano for tableside science lessons and washes the smorgasbord down parched gullets.
Pete's Pizza's culinary artisans transcend their pizza title by delving into pasta, sandwiches, and internationally inspired fare. Unorthodox toppings of ziti, shrimp scampi, and philly steak make their way onto a host of creative pies that excite diners' palates and provide important supplies for the Pillsbury Doughboy's frisbee team. Meanwhile, Greek gyros and souvlaki cool off beneath creamy tzatziki sauce, and steamy pasta plates don a kaleidoscope of sauces as diners shape sprinklings of parmesan into jaunty Italian snowmen.
