St Patrick's Day/Looking for best Irish Bar/Resaurant
Hi, I want to blog about local North Jersey Irish bars/restaurants for my blow www.northjerseyfoodies.com. Already know about Grasshopper too, Clover Leaf. Not really familiar with many others in North Jersey. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
Egan and Sons in Montclair (and a smaller one in W. Orange) is privately owned.
And I'm pretty sure that Shannon Rose is a privately-owned 'chain' (with 2 locations, iirc)
In no particular order:
Hennesssey's In Morristown,
The Quiet Man in Dover,
The Dublin Pub in Morristown,
Blackthorn Restaurant & Irish Pub in Kenilworth,
Claddah in Highlands,
Cryan's in S. Orange,
St. Jame's Gate Publick House in Maplewood,
Shenanigan's in Rockaway,
Thatcher McGee's in Denville,
Collins Bar in Morris Plains
Dublin House in Red Bank.
The Auld Sheben, Whippany
The Shannon Rose, Clifton (they have 2 other locations as well)
Mannions in Somerville
I am now off to ponder over why I know so many Irish Pubs.....
Just bear in mind that any place even remotely identifiable as Irish will be a madhouse on St. Patrick's Day--even if the place is good, the food on March 17 may not be.
