If the Chicago River is dyed green, it must be St. Patrick’s Day. Raise a pint at these pubs in Chicago, New York, and San Francisco. Sláinte!
In addition to its regular menu of Midwestern-leaning pub grub, wine, and beer, this MICHELIN Plate restaurant is serving a St. Patrick's Day menu Saturday, March 12th and Thursday, March 17th. Tuck into corned beef hash, fish n' chips, or a reuben sandwich alongside a pint or Irish whiskey.
Pub classics with flair define the menu here, and the St. Patrick's Day menu—served Saturday March 12th and Thursday March 17th—is no exception. Tuck into smoked haddock cake with spicy horseradish mustard or eschew savories all together for an enormous ice cream sundae with baileys, stout, chocolate ice cream, flourless chocolate cake, stout caramel sauce, malt whipped cream and, of course, a cherry on top.
This Richmond gastropub is a laidback-chic place to celebrate St. Patrick's Day. The menu is compact—think a burger, fries, wings, fried Brussels sprouts—and has three beers from San Francisco craft breweries Harmonic, Barebottle, and Laughing Monk. Come by and sit on the restaurant's patio (reservations recommended), or get takeout or delivery.
Beers and ciders from local breweries like Cellarmaker, HenHouse, and Fort Point are on the menu at this Pacific Heights gastropub, alongside fare that spans the US, Mexico, Korea, and Japan. Sit outdoors and get some sun over plates of elote (roasted in a tandoor, bathed in togarashi mayo, pecorino, and chives) and spicy fried chicken sandwiches.
M. Wells Steakhouse
Oysters and strawberry baby back ribs for St. Patrick's Day? Why not. From the outside, M. Wells looks like the old auto body garage it’s housed in, but step inside and the interior is all gloss and swagger. The dining room is a dark, sultry space—from its gold-and-black wallpapered ceiling and crystal chandeliers, to its sexy red walls, stunning bar area and open, wood-burning kitchen. The drinks list has everything you could want, from NYC craft beer to mezcal.
