Comfort food instills its recipients with a sense of security, much like a friendly hug or a guard dog skilled in Krav Maga. Subdue invading hunger pains with today's Groupon: for $29, you get a three-course dinner for two at The Speakeasy Brooklyn (up to an $84 total value). The dinner includes:
- Two appetizers (up to a $20 value)
- Two entrees (up to a $52 value)
- Two desserts (a $12 value)
With a menu originally created by Top Chef alumna Josie Smith-Malave, the cooks at The Speakeasy Brooklyn craft comfort fare from around the world to plate amidst the brick-lined dining room's speakeasy-style glam festooned with gold curtains and candlelight. Dining duos can begin their global sojourn in America's backyard with tender barbecue-glazed baby back ribs, which evoke memories of neighborhood cookouts and hang-gliding on the talons of majestic eagles. Curried shrimp transports taste buds to Thailand with coconut milk and basil, and salmon glazed with citrus maple basks in an eddy of rice pilaf and string beans. Diners can appease warlord sweet teeth with bounteous offerings of flourless chocolate cake or summery peach-and-blueberry cobbler.
