Doherty’s East Avenue Irish Pub’s Saturday and Sunday brunch menu, yokes together sweet and savory vegan dishes, and traditional Irish breakfast fare that has been lauded among the Best Food and Drink in the Providence Phoenix. Two poached eggs plant sage-hollandaise-dripped flags atop english muffin summits as asparagus, red onion, and roasted red pepper hold down the base camp. The chef griddles traditional french toast, or a vegan interpretation, in a batter of bananas, soymilk, and spices. Enlist the help of a straw or a rolled-up prenup when sipping horseradish dappled, gigantic bloody marys, or mimosas, before slicing into grilled jalapeño cornbread kept warm by two sunny-side-up eggs, chili, cheddar, and a sprinkle of cilantro. Accompany early to midday meals with a side of the corned beef hash or white-bean-tempeh sausage.
Walls decked in suds and sports memorabilia gives sleepy eyes a valid reason to remain open when relaxing at a table in the inviting pub dining room. Those with harder-to-quench thirsts can peruse the phonebook-like list of 82 draft beers.
O Fest RI
Starting Friday, October 5 at 6 p.m. and running through Monday, October 8, O Fest RI, spearheaded by Doherty's East Avenue Irish Pub, celebrates autumn with beer, live music, and general merriment. The festival features fall-themed libations from as far away as Germany itself—with Oktoberfest brews from Spaten, Hofbrau, and Paulaner—and those from closer to home from brewers such as Harpoon, Sam Adams, and Shipyard. In addition, the festival will feature a lineup of musical acts, including What Matters and Those Guys.
Doherty's East Avenue Irish Pub, whose whopping 82 taps helped earn it an award for Best Bar and Beer Selection in The Phoenix's Best of Providence 2011, will anchor the celebration from their dark-wood bar. The bar itself serves a host of culinary treats from Prince Edward Island mussels in zesty zuppa sauce to blackened jerk salmon. An outdoor patio plays host to al fresco dining and lassoing the moon to impress dates.
