Does anyone know where in the Boston area, that I can get a Boxty?
Too bad the Green Briar took them off the menu. That's the only place I've had them.
The Lansdowne Pub has them on the menu as a side, no cheese sauce from what I can see. I haven't tried them, though.
B Street in Newton has a boxty-like crispy potato cake on its brunch menu. Less boxty-like but nonetheless delicious are the potato pancakes served every day at Cafe Polonia.
Townsend's in Hyde Park had/has great ones (are they closed already?).
Townsend's is locked up, dark, and has menacing signs up about no trespassing.
MJ OConnor's - and they are delish - the cheese sauce they serve them with is amazing
I called MJ O'conner's and they said that they didn't have them. I am still looking.
The had them 2 weeks ago - the one in Back Bay definitely does and still lists them on their menu
Irish Boxty Wedges Potato crepe wedges fried to a golden brown & served with cheddar cheese dip 9
Yes - I did look at the Seaport area location menu and they weren't listed. Looks like only the one in Back Bay
Thanks. I'll give it a shot.
I had it at Whiskey Priest on the waterfront awhile back.
I just called Whiskey Priest, and they said that they didn't have them. Are the people that are answering the phones at McGreevy's and Whiskey Priest mistaken?
I had them there awhile back, so maybe they took it off the menu. Too bad, as they were good there.
I haven't been to McGreevey's in awhile, but they had 5 or 6 different versions last I checked.
McGreevy's doesn't show them on their menu. I'll give them a call.
I called McGreevy's and the nice woman, Kate, that answered the phone, said they didn't have them.
That's a shame. I really enjoyed trying them there -- had never had it elsewhere, so can't say if it was authentic or not, but very tasty.
M J Oconnors shows them as an appetizer. I am under the understanding it is like a potato pancake sandwich.
While boxty are often served with a filling, the name "boxty" refers to the potato pancakes themselves, which may or may not be stuffed.
