What You'll Get
Cooking at home involves the risk of small burns, spilled liquids, and the advances of an oven in heat. Avoid stove-top suitors with today's Groupon to Phil & Derek’s. Choose from three options:
- For $44, you get a five-course dinner for two (an $89 total value). The dinner includes:

- One plate of bacon-wrapped shrimp with dirty rice (a $25 value)
- One slow-roasted prime rib (a $22 value)
- One dessert (a $7 value)
For $30, you get $60 worth of dinner. Entrees range from $13 to $27.
For $15, you get $30 worth of lunch.
Slinging seafood, gumbo, and other authentic Cajun fare, Phil & Derek’s brings authentic New Orleans cuisine to a Creole-cottage setting. Prix fixe diners submerge beaks in an appetizer of smoked salmon with fried goat cheese, piling on aqueous fare with two subsequent bowls of Big Jim’s seafood gumbo. Bacon-wrapped shrimp reclines regally atop a mound of meat-and-veggie-imbued dirty rice, inspired by the throne of Louis XIV. After tipping a plate of slow-roasted prime rib into bellies, guests can sugarcoat sweet teeth with selections such as peach cobbler à la mode or a rich white- and dark-chocolate mousse cake. While reflecting upon eaten meals, soak in the wealth of live entertainment, such as cabaret performers and a trio of dancing crab cakes.
Phil & Derek's is closed Mondays and only serves brunch on Sundays; plan ahead to ensure that you make use of the full value of your Groupon.

About Phil & Derek's
A large, old-fashioned porch surrounds Phil & Derek's creole-style cottage filled with food, wine, and sounds from the Big Easy. The BYOB restaurant's wine bar washes down catfish and prime rib with potables culled from wineries in Bordeaux, Spain, and Argentina. Every night, live jazz, zydeco, and blues complement the fresh Cajun dishes and the restaurant's antique accents, such as french doors that once acted as translators. On Sunday mornings, diners can devour a variety of ever-rotating brunch fare during what Citysearch called the Best Morning-After Brunch.
