Boasting a hand-carved mahogany bar, stunning stained-glass windows, and artifacts culled from the historical St. James Gate Brewery, Dublin Square bathes customers in the essence of Ireland like a tub full of Lucky Charms. The menu blends American bar favorites with authentic Irish specialties. Salute great canines of the past with the corned-beef-stuffed dublin hush puppies ($6.99), or submerge muttonchops in the irish beef dip ($8.99). A bevy of burger options includes the barbecue with irish bacon, with a generous slab of Angus beef slathered in green-apple barbecue sauce and cheese, then adorned with irish bacon ($8.99). Or stay green with a veggie panini, a combo of cucumbers, peppers, tomatoes, onions, olives, mushrooms, and cheese on toasted ciabatta ($7.99). Match your meal with one of the 19 craft beers from the full bar, including Guinness, or chase down the Dirty Leprechaun, a mischievous mix of Bailey’s, crème de menthe, Kahlua, and vanilla vodka that warms bellies like an embrace from a bashful rainbow.
