BOSTON (CBS) – As St. Patrick’s Day celebrations get underway, Dan Andelman of the Phantom Gourmet takes us to the area’s tastiest Irish restaurants.
At The Tinker’s Son in Norwell, chef-owner Brian Houlihan successfully recreates the Irish Pubs of his homeland, pouring perfect pints, and serving hearty classics like lamb stew and bubbling shepherd’s pie.
Dunn Gaherin’s in Newton is a real-deal Irish pub and restaurant that’s really serious about their cuisine.
Specialties include golden fish and chips with malt vinegar, and homestyle meatloaf.
Waxy O’Connors in Lexington and Foxborough has a cozy, come-as-you-are environment. The slow-cooked Beef Stew is a true taste of the old country.
For more food and fun, watch the Phantom Gourmet Saturday and Sunday at 10:30 a.m. and 11 a.m. on myTV38.
