Rite mate, today is Friday, March 17 and it is Saint Patrick’s Day! Our soups du jour are Tomato Soup or Clam Chowder. Naturally we are serving traditional Irish-American Corned Beef and Cabbage served with potatoes and vegetable. Price is $18.99. The Fresh Catch is Grilled Salmon with Watermelon, Pineapple Salsa, Fresh Halibut with Chardonnay Sauce or Fresh Petrale Sole with Lemon Butter.
There’s a little bit of Irish in everyone, right? Did you know that corned beef is not considered an Irish national dish, and the connection with Saint Patrick’s Day specifically originates as part of Irish-American culture. Corned beef was used as a substitute for bacon by Irish-American immigrants in the late 19th century. Corned beef and cabbage is the Irish-American variant of the Irish dish of bacon and cabbage.
