Though the most direct way to a lover's heart is through his or her stomach, amateurs often take wrong turns and end up somewhere near young Anthony Michael Hall's elbow. Navigate plates of expertly prepared Southern fare with today's Groupon to Water Street Restaurant & Lounge in DUMBO. Choose between two options:
- For $8, you get $16 worth of lunch fare and drinks.
- For $15, you get $30 worth of dinner fare and drinks.
The savory flavors of Southern cuisine get an elegant, loving update at the chic Water Street Restaurant & Lounge. Ready senses for delectation by perusing a menu of appetizing eats, then warm up bicuspid biceps by jaw-juggling the Cajun crawfish poppers, two oversized jalapenos stuffed with cheeses and the titular crustaceans, accompanied with green mayonnaise ($7). Down and Dirty in the Delta homemade crab cakes are a chef specialty, served snuggled up with dirty rice and collard greens ($20), as is the hearty Mississippi Mass turkey meatloaf ($16), which is named after a renowned American gospel choir and graciously shares the stage with country mashed potatoes and stewed okra and tomatoes. Lunch visitors can enjoy Water Street's zesty, sub-Mason-Dixon flavors ensnared between bread, with nosh like the fried chicken ($11) and the hot andouille sausage ($11) sandwiches arriving with sides of hand-cut fries. A generous Sunday brunch ($16.95 per person) is also available to humans who eat on Sundays.
Liquid accompaniments include red and white sangria ($8) as well as hand-crafted specialty cocktails ($13). Water Street's elegant, burnished main dining room sports flourishes like an iron chandelier against rustic exposed brick walls, while a sleek underwater lounge neatly approximates hanging out in an elitist blowfish-only nightclub.
