When Pangaea—the earth's greatest rock supergroup—broke up, many fans blamed it on the high-heeled wiles of Europe's inseparable girlfriend, Italia. Discover a sweeter side to the globe's Yoko with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of Italian fare at Simply Italian Eatery in Brownstown.
Simply Italian Eatery’s cuisiners craft an extensive menu of made-to-order and preprepared Italian spreads within a casual food haven that fuses the epicurean delectations of a restaurant, bakery, and café. Muffle atonal stomach saxophones with a trip to the Market Stand ($8, $4 with entree), a buffet brimming with soups and salads, before mouth diving into a bowl of traditional pasta, such as the penne primavera ($9) or gnocchi al romano ($10). Feed a table of teenage mutant bon vivants with a cheese pizza ($6+), or with one of many traditional pies such as the margharita or roasted eggplant ($10+). Discerning carnivores can sharpen their incisors on a selection of meaty entrees, including the chicken parmesan or veal scaloppine ($12+), and vegetarians can hang a fang on the canneloni- and basil-covered capresse classico salad ($8).
With plates piled high, families can revel amid warm wood tones and tranquil music while catching up on news, sports, and celebrity poodle gossip via HD TVs and complimentary WiFi. Simply Italian also offers pickup and catering services.
