British Isle favorites and contemporary Irish bistro fare from the family of the late owner of Murphy's Bleachers.
Under executive chef Jeannie Carlson, the menu at this huge bar and restaurant in a rehabbed Lincoln Avenue funeral home is a mix of British Isles standards and creative contemporary Irish bistro fare. My friend's Guinness-and-onion soup arrived in a sizzling hot crock with a bubbling white-cheddar crust; though a bit undersalted it was still savory and satisfying. Her shepherd's pie, served in a similarly blister-inducing piece of crockery, was a hearty mix of lamb, carrots, and pearl onions underneath a crown of piped-on mashed potato rosettes. I opted for a plate of grilled sea scallops served with carrots and fingerling potatoes that I washed down with a second glass of a refreshing sauvignon blanc. The staff do their darnedest to make you feel at home--our waiter kept promising to buy us shots.
