Potpies were invented by parents to trick their children into eating their vegetables, who in turn baked W2 cakes to trick their parents into filing their taxes. Enjoy your meal sans trickery with today's Groupon to PotPie. Choose between the following options:
- For $7, you get $15 worth of upscale comfort fare and drinks during lunch.

Zagat-rated PotPie dishes out its eponymous entree and other thoughtfully prepared comfort far alongside an array of classic cocktails. While the quaint chalkboard menu varies based on what's in season, recent lunches have included grilled cheese sandwiches ($7) and savory, exquisitely encrusted potpies teeming with chicken and vegetables or beef and mushrooms ($8), which morph into larger portions at suppertime ($12). Pan-seared scallops encircle tomato and leek risotto and grilled asparagus ($21), while PotPie's signature pan-roasted chicken ($14) surveys the table horizon from its castle of mashed potatoes and green beans with a pan jus moat. Skilled barkeeps pour wines ($5+ per glass) and local beers ($3.50+), shake, stir, and juggle classic cocktails such as Manhattans and Old Fashioneds ($6–$8) and craft distinctive libations such as the foam-topped espresso martini ($6).
PotPie cultivates a homey, rustic atmosphere with wood floors, exposed brick walls, beam and pressed-tin ceilings, and a bar handcrafted from 100-year-old reclaimed oak. Votives and locally farmed flowers crown each of the restaurant's dozen tables, while paintings of famous savory pies adorn the walls.
