Drunken Deviled Eggs from Root & Bone (Yelp)

Popular Southern fried chicken spot Root & Bone's Puerto Rico location was forced to shutter in the wake of Hurricane Maria, so the NYC outpost is throwing happy hour fundraisers with a portion of proceeds benefitting staff who've been unable to work. On Mondays through Fridays from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m., head over to the Alphabet City restaurant for food specials including $2 Drunken Deviled Eggs (pictured above), $4 Chicken Biscuits with pepper jelly and pickles, and $6 Fried Chicken Drumsticks with spicy honey. Drink specials include $5 draft beers, $8 wines, and $8 cocktails made with Don Q Rum.

Imli Urban Indian Food has a new lunch special for UES locals and workers looking for a big lunch for not big money. Weekdays from noon til 2:30 p.m. the restaurant will serve you a six-course meal for $12.99, which includes a vegetarian starter, meat starter, a main, lentils, an accompaniment and dessert. One could also opt for a Roomali Roll (pictured above), roti bread stuffed with things like eggs ($6), beef kebab ($8), or a brunch-y pork sausage, bacon and egg ($10).

Seamore's Tuna Melt

The Seamore's location in Chelsea begins their Montauk Mondays series this week, a "celebration of Montauk's local fisherman and sustainably caught, local seafood." In practice, this means a Preserved Tuna Melt ($18) on the menu every Monday, which employs the under-utilized lower tail section of the fish. It's cooked confit and served on toasted white bread with lemon aioli and cheddar cheese, with sweet potato fries or kale avocado salad on the side and $5 Montauk Brewery beers and $10 Montauk Rumrunners, if so desired.

On Wednesday evening, chef Akhtar Nawab's Alta Calidad—which was just distinguished as a Michelin Bib Gourmand restaurant for 2018—hosts a one-night Indian pop-up highlighting the cuisine of Nawab's childhood. There will be two family-style courses, with dishes including Saag Paneer, Ricotta Malfatti & Fennel Pollen; Stewed Nihari-Style Bone Marrow and Sun Gold Tomatoes served with Roti; Cauliflower Dosa with Feuille de Brik & Tomato Confit; and Pork Ribs with Onion Jam, Garam Masala & Lychee. There are seatings at 6:30 p.m. and 8:30 p.m.; $65 plus tax and gratuity.

A special anniversary menu drops Wednesday at dinnertable, the intimate reverse speakeasy restaurant located behind a bar in the East Village. For the past year, Chef Ricardo Arias has been cooking in the tiny counter kitchen, and the chef has created a special menu emphasizing his signature melding of Japanese, French and Caribbean cuisines. The $60 tasting menu includes oyster aguachile with cucumber, serranos and avocado; pickled tuna on a toston tostada with spicy mayo; porchetta with pea sauce; and a poached pear with sake-mirin and manchego ice-cream. Fifty percent of a Cartoon Island cocktail proceeds will also be donated to hurricane relief in Puerto Rico, where Arias has roots.
