Foodlife, Chicago

Chicago loves its St. Patrick's Day celebrations, and this food hall, at the base of the Water Tower, is no exception. Dive into the Shammock Shake, with mint ice cream, crushed Oreo cookies and clover sprinkles, or combine vice and virtue with the Great Green pizza, topping a pie with kale, spinach, pesto and basil oil.

Society Fair, Alexandria, Virginia

Owned by renowned Irish chef Cathal Armstrong, this market and bistro often serves food with an Irish accent, including Irish oatmeal at breakfast and sandwcihes on Irish pullman loaves at lunch. The weekly Date Night Bag — available on Fridays — skews green for St. Patrick's Day, with shepherd's pie, an Irish Caesar and a bakewell tart, with Irish beer.

Tavern, Los Angeles

Suzanne Goin's casual Brentwood restaurant and market takes on an Irish spin for St. Patrick's Day. The James Beard Foundation Award-winning chef and her team prepare house-brined corned beef brisket with braised red cabbage, potatoes and parsley-mustard sauce, as well as beer-battered fish and chips and a green velvet cake with Guinness ice cream. Pair the dishes with a flight of Irish whiskey or the Irish kiss, a special whiskey-stout cocktail with rosemary.

Kitty Hoynes, Syracuse

Complete with decorations from the old country, this Syracuse pub oozes Irish spirit. Dive into Irish poutine — with Guinness gravy — beer-battered fish and chips, bankers and mash and hearty meatloaf with cabbage cream sauce, a favorite of Guy's when he visited on Triple D. Packed on St. Patrick's Day, the pub oozes not just Irish spirit, but also Irish spirits, with the largest selection of Irish whiskey in Upstate New York.
