Bars 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 gourmet tavern fare and drinks at The South Side, located on West 11th Street.
Voted 2010's 2nd Best Trendy Bar by the Fox 8 Hot List, The South Side dishes out a succulent menu of gourmet tavern fare overflowing with fresh takes on traditional pub mainstays. Quack for a small plate of chipotle barbecue duck pizza, featuring roasted tomatoes, scallions, provolone, mozzarella, and cilantro-lime vinaigrette ($9.50), or study a sandwich's delicious cheekbone muscles with the open-faced chorizo meatloaf topped onto sourdough and drizzled with rosemary cabernet gravy ($10). Grilled german bologna on a pretzel roll comes dressed with caramelized onions, spicy mustard, and horseradish havarti ($10), while hazelnut coffee-crusted sockeye salmon is served with seasonal squash purée and chocolate buerre blanc ($10) . Every Sunday from 10:30 a.m. to 3 p.m., diners just waking up after a long night of unsuccessfully building an egg-juggling robot can dine on a brunch menu heaped with zesty midmorning fare such as chicken and waffles, which layers tempura, airline breast, belgian waffles, cinnamon butter, Ohio maple syrup, and a side of hot sauce ($7).
The South Side invites hungry travelers to bask in the culinary coziness of their year-round patio, keeping folks toasty with a roaring fireplace during the chilly solstice and comfortably shaded during the scorchier seasons. Weekly live music or DJ tracks peppers the air on Fridays and Saturdays with floating quarter notes while two HD plasma televisions broadcast the latest athletic events, inspiring sports fanatics to play table-side flag football with napkins and a pot roast pigskin. This deal is valid toward alcohol, which can be enjoyed at the table or along the seemingly endless, side-winding bar.
