The spaghetti-western film genre is noted for its good use of extreme close-ups, its bad use of tomato sauce during gunfights, and its ugly use of Clint Eastwood’s puppetry skills. Get a fistful of western-less spaghetti with today’s Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of fresh, inventive Italian fare at Richies, located in Brookline.
Richies provides hearty helpings of handmade Italian cuisine crafted using fresh market ingredients and premium Boars Head meats and cheeses. Specialty sandwiches such as the chicken parmesan are built on a foundation of house-made focaccia ($5.99), while the baked veggie lasagna is an immovable feast for fit for any green-blooded plantavore ($9.99). The relaxed, family-friendly atmosphere is great for kinship-bolstering dining sessions, or debating the mysterious cosmic origins of the calzone ($6.99–$16.99) or the 10-inch cheese pizza ($4.99). Check out the full menu to get a head start planning your meal, or composing your firm, yet gentle breakup haiku to the neighborhood pizza boy.
