Pubs have become the meeting places of choice now that libraries, public parks, and desolate midnight crossroads are all under Prohibition. Enjoy a legal and delicious dalliance with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of pub fare and drinks at The Basin Pub in Pittsford.
The Basin Pub's menu accompanies upscale twists on corner-pub favorites with a breadth of draft brews and wines. Warm up gullet muscles with an order of crispy wedge fries smothered in melted blue cheese and drizzled with wing sauce ($8), then experience the layered lushness of a deli-style sandwich stuffed with roast beef, turkey, or corned beef roasted for up to 12 hours, with a choice of cheese and bread ($11 for 10 oz.). Lobster mac 'n' cheese arrives with the lowbrow elegance of Clark Gable at a tire fire, crafted from cavatelli pasta sautéed with lobster in a four-cheese house sauce and crested with crispy breadcrumbs and a drizzle of truffle oil ($13). A broad selection of draft beers, wines, and house cocktails provides a match for any meal and gives patrons an excuse to check out the bartender's solid resumé.
A lamp-lit wooden bar comes full square under a copper ceiling, affording sippers varied views of the pub's eight high-definition televisions—measuring up to 109 inches—broadcasting the exploits of March Madness hoopers and the Buffalo Sabers. Diners hold food court from high bar-tables as they dictate the just divisions of appetizers, or tuck into cushioned booths accented with paintings from ArtisanWorks

- Besides the upscale atmosphere, people rave about the food, which includes oversize sandwiches with roast beef, turkey or corned beef slow-cooked daily in an Alto-Shaam oven. – Denise M. Champagne, Brighton-Pittsford Post
