Every June 16, Dubliners observe Bloomsday in honor of James Joyce’s novel Ulysses, which ends with all of Ireland’s flowers opening on the same day and drawing an apocalyptic swarm of killer bees. Celebrate any day in Irish style with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of pub fare and drinks at Fallon’s Bar & Grill in Olivette.
Fallon’s Bar & Grill greets guests with a menu full of handmade Irish comfort food and a bar brimful of mouth-moisteners. Start your tongue-tour of the Emerald Isle with potato soup or the Dublin-imbued Mexican classic, Irish nachos—topped with jalapeños, hamburger, lamb, and Guinness-beer cheese—before pairing a pint with the classic fish and chips with beer-battered cod and homemade tartar sauce. Comfort-food connoisseurs will find much to love in Mom’s corned beef and cabbage served with carrots, irish potatoes, and an affectionate cheek-pinching for growing up so big and strong and being able to change one's own diapers. Otherwise, get the best of both worlds with Fallon's surf 'n' turf, which floats an 8-ounce sirloin vessel atop a sea of lobster-, scallop-, and shrimp-stuffed ravioli, then drenches it in a garlic-cream sauce with seasonal veggies. Entrees range from $7.99 for fettuccine alfredo to $15.25 for surf 'n' turf.
The restaurant’s glossy wooden fixtures are strewn with Irish flags and green regalia, causing pub patrons to break out in freckles as they tipple more than 30 types of whiskey and local brews such as Schlafly Kolsch ($3.25) and Fallon’s beer. Sixteen TV screens make sure sports fans don't miss a single highlight from America's perplexingly popular new sport, ball. Weekly trivia nights and live music add to the festive dining, and Fallon's outdoor seats surround a fountain, allowing philosophers to ponder whether a fountain gets wet when it rains.
Fallon's Bar & Grill
The bottle-lined bar, Irish flags, and rich wooden tables all lend Fallon's Bar & Grill an authentic public house ambiance where a menu of traditional comfort fare from both sides of the Atlantic seem at home. Preparing each entree with fresh ingredients, cooks whip up shepherd's pie and roll handmade gnocchi. Servers bustle around tables amid the din of live musical performances, pub trivia nights, and murder-mystery dinners throughout the week. Behind the hardwood bar, mixologists help to keep spirits high by blending cocktails, pouring a selection of whiskeys, and doling out bottled and draft beers and 16 televisions help guests keep up on their favorite episode of Emergency Broadcast System. During warmer seasons, the revelry spills outside as the restaurant opens its patio seating to diners.
