Best Irish Food in Providence?
Forget the oxymoronic jokes but St. Patrick is around the corner and friends and I want to eat the best the Emerald Isle has to offer (excluding Guinness, of course). Suggestions?
Yeah its a chain - but lik eyou said - not a big irish group in PVD
I didn't get the impression the request was for gourmet Irish food.....
and I think they do a more than passable job at some of the classic pub food - stews, shepherds pie.,....
to each his own
But the decor is fun
Music is great
the staff has always been friendly & attentive when I have gone , the food is served in a timely manner
and you can enjoy yourself without a big bill
(unless you keep drinking the guiness!!!! (8->)

Never eaten there but Patrick's Pub on Smith St. has a menu which includes the usual suspects (bangers and mash, shepards pie, fish and chips, guiness beef stew, mixed grill). I suspect on St. Paddy's day you would also find corned beef and cabbage.
The East Ave. Cafe has in years past had a seperate menu on March 17. Their regular menu also includes a number of Irish dishes.
Chez Pascal is doing a fundraising meal on St Patrick's Day, including their house-made corned beef. Anyone who tried the brisket sandwich from the hot dog cart this past summer can tell you that the man knows his way around that cut of meat.
It's a special event, and it's not at Chez P. There's info on their web site: http://www.chez-pascal.com/events.html
