Two of the three dining rooms in this rambling old brownstone have French doors that open onto a large patio overlooking Clark Street; the walls are paneled and hung with Irish crests. While there are plenty of Irish specialties on the menu--fish-and-chips, shepherd's pie, corned beef and cabbage, and at brunch a traditional Irish breakfast--the majority of dishes are elegantly plated contemporary fare. A chile-glazed salmon salad is tossed with raspberry vinaigrette, candied walnuts, cucumbers, and shaved beets. A meatless option is the grilled veggie skewers, served over couscous with an onion coulis. It's a nice departure from the usual pub grub, and the patio alone is worth the trip.
