What You'll Get
Nothing cures a nasty case of exsanguination like a bit of hearty pub grub. With today’s Groupon, $10 gets you $25 worth of delicious pub fare at The Bleeding Deacon, the award-winning eatery that is quickly becoming known as one of South City’s heavyweights.
Under the culinary direction of Jimmy Hippchen, the Deacon serves up dishes that give comfort food a comforting kick of Creole infusions, balancing traditional American fare with new American boldness. More than 40 beers pair up with the grub, and delicious vegetarian and vegan options ensure that there’s more than just a little something for everyone in your party.
Pub food has never been presented with such care and attention. The Home of the Curly Dog is also the domain of the best jukebox and best veggie burger, so say the good people at the Riverfront Times. Open for lunch, dinner, secret double-lunch, and drinks, the kitchen at the Deacon is all too happy to pair your meal with the perfect house-made condiments, such as malt vinegar, bourbon ketchup, or its head-turning sweet potato salsa. Start things off nice and easy with a bowl of the weekly soup special, such as home-cooked curried cream of tomato soup ($6), or jump right into one of the most celebrated, most flavorful meatloafs in town ($10). The black-and-tan battered fish and chips are sure to please ($10) alongside any of the joint’s 10 beers on tap. With room enough for a bite of dessert, don’t miss out on specials such as the vegan pineapple upside-down cake or the game-changing turtle bread pudding, delicious despite its absence of actual turtles.
When bold food is cooked with love and pride, it meets salivating appetites and a loving response. The Bleeding Deacon goes out of its way to deliver its strong point of view to the stomachs of all. Take advantage of the Deacon’s happy hours from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. on Mondays through Fridays. If you aren’t already hungrily making plans, your appetite ought to be inspected.
St. Louis Magazine calls The Bleeding Deacon “a hidden little gem” and “an anomaly, successfully riding the culinary line between pub and gastropub.” Urbanspooners and Yelpers agree, giving a hearty 95% approval and four stars, respectively:
- Dark and cozy inside with a fantastic Juke Box. Nice Patio outside. Bar / Comfort Food executed with love and creativity. – Denise, Urbanspoon
- The Bleeding Deacon has years of success ahead and is sure to become a destination in Tower Grove. – folkconspiracy, Urbanspoon
- Everything I've tried is amazing and defies description. I'm really impressed. I highly recommend the Bleeding Deacon, both as an awesome dive bar as well as an excellent lunch & dinner spot. – Patrick W., Yelp
The Changegamer: Bleeding Deacon
In a staggering linguistic coincidence, The Bleeding Deacon shares its name with the upcoming video game adaptation of primetime television’s hottest thrill-series, The Changegamer, featuring the voice acting and motion-capture talents of Changegamer star Josh Barrows. Here’s an excerpt from the press kit they sent over:
- Duncan Hunter IS The Changegamer, an escaped genius on the run from a shadowy institution, known only as The Institute. In his quest for the truth behind his past, he has played many roles and faced many challenges—racecar driver, veterinary surgeon—but he’s never faced a challenge like this before: you. Play as Duncan Hunter and Institute Agent Melinda Harper, using all of Duncan’s game-changing abilities to navigate 49 levels of impersonating action to reveal the mysterious secret behind the device codenamed “The Bleeding Deacon.” Find out what these revelations mean for the fate of Duncan Hunter…and the world.
Featuring in-continuity secrets, vital to the Changegamer canon, the game retails for $69.99 and is available for illegal download.
