Like taking a portrait, eating out can bring families together and give everyone a chance to yell enthusiastically about cheese. Gather over grub with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $35 worth of gastropub fare at PSbklyn in Brooklyn.
PSbklyn's servers slide dishes from a menu resplendent with burgers and brick-oven pizzas down a polished crimson bar. The aromas of wood-fired pizzas such as the Joey G., which asserts a flavorful presence with grilled chicken, barbecue sauce, and avocado-ranch dressing ($12), twist with the warming scents of the Reuben sliders ($6) in a mouthwatering tangle like an Oompa Loompa's game of Twister. In the lively dining area, patrons dress beef, chicken, veggie, or turkey patties ($10) in one of nine different ensembles, such as The Luca's sartorial armor of avocado, smoked-tomato jam and portobello mushroom (an additional $5). Kids hone their future-foodie instincts without crafting Play-Doh sushi by selecting a foundation for their meal from options including gooey grilled cheeses and pigs in a blanket and pairing it with fries, steamed vegetables, or applesauce ($9).
Though the Groupon may not be used for these games, ski ball and air hockey broadcast jovial noise from the downstairs game room, which delights youngsters by day and grownups by night. On weekend afternoons, kids watch flicks on the movie jukebox, and magicians and face painters exercise youthful imaginations.
