Detroit -- good Irish restaurant? And not a pub.

Are there any good Irish restaurants in the Detroit area that serve traditional Irish fare such as colcannon, champ, Irish stew, Boxty, coddle, soda bread, and wheaten bread? Preferably not a pub, as I loathe cigarette smoke.

  1. you might consider gus o'connor's. locations in downtown rochester and novi

    or try baile corcaigh

    but beware, they are both irish places and have bars which invariably attracts smoking. but i have found that the air quality at o'connors is fine (haven't been to baile in a long time).

      Love Baile Corcaigh. It's still one of Corktown's best kept secrets. Great food, good people.

        Thanks xman887 and eizans. My good friend Summerfield called and learned that Baile Corcaigh is smokefree. I'll be visiting soon. Thanks again.
