Unlike teddy bears or a friend’s supportive shoulder, most cuisine fails the comfort test by turning into sloppy mush when subjected to heartfelt hugs. Dine on encouragingly squeezable fare with today’s Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of American comfort fare at Shea's Food, Wine & Tap.
Shea’s has served hearty, home-cooked meals for brunch, lunch, and dinner since 1917. Dinner diners can dive into five arrays of savory mac 'n' cheese ($7.99+), or spear a paper-wrapped fish of the day, which arrives atop parchment paper in case its freshness inspires diners to write an impromptu rap verse ($14.99). A light lunch menu of wraps ($7.50+), burgers ($8.99+), and gourmet grilled cheeses ($7.25+) tempers tantruming bellies, and the Sunday brunch breaks Saturday-night fasts with spiced apple-cinnamon pancakes ($7.50) or gorgonzola frittata ($7.95). A range of vegetarian-friendly and gluten-free options are also available to delight visitors with selective diets. The eatery's environment mingles a casual vibe with a lavish décor of scarlet brick walls, white leather banquettes, marble-topped tables, elegant chandeliers, and butlers wearing beach shorts.
