Irish pub grub in Evanston.

Our Review

The perfectly opaque grilled salmon served here on a generous bed of spinach is so good you won't care if it's less-than-traditional pub food. And the server put me onto a pasty stuffed with Guinness-stewed beef tenderloin and mushroom, the meat exceedingly tender and the pastry a flaky, buttery delight. Piping-hot chips are served skin on-order them with a side of curry. There are also fish-and-chips and bangers and mash, and hard-core traditionalists/masochists will appreciate the Full Monty Irish Breakfast: bangers, bacon, black-and-white pudding, eggs, tomatoes, mushrooms, and fried bread. More refined diners should know that the Celtic Knot offers what's probably Evanston's only afternoon high tea service (Wednesdays and Saturdays; reservations required). There's also Sunday brunch, weekday lunch specials, and properly poured Guinness, plus live music, some nights bluegrass, others Irish music jams.
