Restaurants offer diners both a delicious reprieve from the kitchen and a secure environment that makes it virtually impossible for the dish to run away with the spoon. Keep your eating implements obedient with today’s Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of upscale casual fare at Jamieson's Irish-House & Grill in Dartmouth. Spotted with local temptations such as Nova Scotia mussels, Jamieson's menu boasts traditional dishes with a strong Irish influence. Rotating daily specials include hearty fare such as corned beef and cabbage, bangers and mashed, and liver and onions. For a cold-weather warm-up, try the robust lamb-based Irish stew, bejewelled with potatoes, vegetables, and aromatic herbs ($12.49) or the traditional Ploughman's lunch of breads, cheese, pate, fruit and a reading from the Farmer’s Almanac ($12.99). The homey, pub-like interior is adorned with functional antiques and was hand built and designed by the owner Chris Smith.
Jamieson’s Irish-House & Grill
After spending 12 years in the corporate world, Chris Smith decided to relinquish his daily suit and tie to pursue a long-time dream of opening a neighbourhood pub. The Dartmouth native elicited the help of friends, family, and a background in carpentry to design and construct the dining room and secret passageways of Jamieson’s Irish-House & Grill, which opened in September 1999. The menu offers traditional Irish seafood, beef, and chicken dishes culled from world-renowned recipes, including Smithwicks beer-battered fish 'n' chips. A lengthy wooden bar houses more than 50 varieties of Scotch, Irish, or blended whiskey as well as several imported beers, both bottled and on draft.
