One of the great simple pleasures of traveling abroad is stumbling upon a restaurant frequented by locals, followed closely by bathing in gelato and loudly explaining why everything in America is better. Replicate that feeling with this Groupon.

The Peacock's Pantry Gourmet Bistro
Modest white booths glow with golden sconce light at the base of a red-brick wall. A few feet away, crisp tablecloths fold over the edges of black wooden tables, whose accompanying wooden chairs look as though they belong to a home in the country.
All aspects of The Peacock's Pantry display a marriage of familiarity and refinement. The menu presents comforting American and European classics with contemporary, gourmet twists, such as honey-lime-glazed chicken, panko-crusted crab cakes, and bacon-wrapped petite beef filet mignon. The small-plate selection allows diners to enhance meals with the excitement of a game of hot potato, and the dessert selection includes specialties such as Kahlua chocolate mousse and maple-and-pecan-baked brie.
