Restaurants offer diners both a delicious reprieve from the kitchen and a secure environment that makes it virtually impossible for the dish to run away with the spoon. Keep your eating implements obedient with today’s Groupon: for $12, you get $25 worth of gourmet pub fare and drinks at The Local Gastropub.
The Local Gastropub, which was featured in Pub Magazine, rethinks traditional British pub fare with an infusion of local produce and modern techniques. Chefs Scott and Hollis Connor, who have dished up delicacies in kitchens around the solar system, craft the menu's simple, hearty line-up of comforting comestibles, from triple-smoked Ontario bacon mac ‘n’ cheese ($11), to a bangers-and-mash pot pie ($13). Angus burgers ($11) and their accompanying fries join forces to silence braying stomachs, while an order of battered-cod n' chips ($14) and homemade spicy ketchup host a more festive celebration of the sea than Poseidon's 19th birthday party. To prevent esophageal drought, shower a plateful of indulgent eats with an ice-cold local brew, or finish it off with a decadent deep-fried Mars bar with vanilla ice cream ($6.50).
