Ahead, Eater presents some of the best nightly deals from the Eater dealfeed and elsewhere for the thrifty diners out there who aren't so keen on Groupon and its spawn. Unsurprisingly, the best deals to be had come on Sundays and Mondays, great news for those who work in the industry, not so much for the rest of the city.
