Inman Square’s highly regarded, very authentic Irish pub offers a highly regarded, very authentic homage to this classic dish. Fresh cod and hand-cut fries take center stage in the Druid Fish & Chips, and then house tartar and the traditional “wrapped in newspaper” presentation steal the show. (Just like Ireland, except closer.) Suggested pairing: beer.
With an all-Irish staff delivering back home hospitality, this Irish-owned establishment provides the consummate across-the-pond pub atmosphere. All of the bartenders here hail from County Claire with some staying for years while others eventually head back home. The cozy venue has a small bar and an even smaller kitchen, but despite its small stature, the food emerging from the kitchen has long been the toast of the town. From Fish and Chips and hefty burgers to a Chicken Soup that’s a local remedy for curing winter colds, the menu covers all the comfort food classics. Plus, Guinness Stew and Shepherd’s Pie are on the menu for those seeking Irish fare. On Sunday afternoons and Tuesday nights, catch a local pick-up session packed in the corner booth playing traditional Irish music featuring flutes, fiddles, and accordions.
