Eat Like You're Irish: Restaurants for St. Patrick's Day

Your string of luck continues with these places that serve dishes with an Irish twist.

Kitty Hoynes
At this top-of-the-line Irish Pub, Chef Damien Brownlow serves up pub food with a twist. Guy loved the Reuben fritters because of their creamy "melt-in-your-mouth" flavor and the accompanying honey mustard horseradish. He also liked the Irish meatloaf with cabbage cream sauce and champ potatoes.

The Franklin Café

For a combo typically eaten on St. Patrick's Day, corned beef and cabbage surely has Adam Gertler green with envy. At Franklin Cafe, the house-cured corned beef and cabbage has become one of his absolute favorite combos -- right up there with Franklin’s steak frites and smoky spareribs.

Danny's Deli

Any local will admit it: Cleveland is obsessed with corned beef. Head to Danny's Deli for one of the best corned beef sandwiches in town. Its key ingredients are generosity and freshness, according to Danny's website.

Murphy's Bar & Grill

Located in downtown Honolulu, Murphy's Bar and Grill doesn't serve traditional island cuisine. As Guy learned on DDD, Murphy's brings the luck of the Irish to locals. The "shovel fest" begins with open-faced turkey sandwiches, homemade shepherd's pie and the best pint of Guinness on the island.

The Buena Vista Café

This wharf-side cafe was the first place in America to serve an Irish coffee, and today they've got it down to an art form. Get a seat at the bar to watch the tenders make up to 10 whiskey-laden coffees at a time. Tyler Florence claims it's the best thing he's ever drank.

Matt's Big Breakfast

Guy isn't usually a breakfast fan but he'll stop by Matt's Big Breakfast anytime of day. He orders the Chop & Chick, a giant Iowa pork rib chop that's marinated in a tangy pesto sauce and served with 2 eggs. It's "good eats" and possibly the closest thing to green eggs and ham.
