Visiting an Irish public house is like stepping into James Joyce's Ulysses without dealing with molemen, teenage detectives, and heavy-handed NASCAR references. Read the Cliffs Notes with today's Groupon: for $6, you get $12 worth of Irish cuisine at Brannon's: A Public House. Located in the heart of Birmingham, Brannon's serves modern versions of traditional English, Irish, and Scottish dishes.
Jumpstart dinner with an order of Mrs. Lovett's meat pies, pastry rounds packed with onion, rosemary, and minced roast beef ($4.25). Traditionalists sup on hearty plates such as bangers and mash (roasted sausage stacked atop mashed potatoes and smothered with red-wine gravy and onions, $11.50) or boxtey (potato balls mixed with Dubliner cheese and Black Forest ham, $10.50). Vegetarians can opt for the banshee, a grilled portabella cap topped with cheddar and served on a yeast bun with chips ($9.75). Guzzle a chocolate Guinness milkshake ($6.50) for dessert.
A family-owned operation, Brannon's takes its name from owner James Hardin's mother, who helped the restaurant as it was opening by taking orders, working the register, and cultivating an convivial atmosphere for gatherings of families, friends, and friends of the families of friends. Eclectic thrifted goods and family heirlooms give the modest eatery character and color. Brannon's is open for lunch and dinner.
