McDaids Irish Pub & Restaurant
In 1779, three years after the United States declared its independence, a pub called McDaid's opened in Dublin. Over the next few centuries, it became an Irish institution and frequent meeting place for some of the country's famed modernist writers. Now, thanks to the collaboration between Robert Beebe and Irishmen Eamonn Cullen and John Heverin, the McDaid's experience has found an American home in McDaid's Irish Pub. Filled with imported Irish furniture, the American McDaid's further evokes its Irish counterpart with Irish signage and shelves lined with books.
That homage continues in the kitchen, where chef Keith Calise crafts everything from corned beef and cabbage to banger sausages mixed with shrimp and grits. He even incorporates plenty of booze into pub favorites such as smoked wings with whiskey-spiked honey glazes and PEI mussels flavored with rasher bacon and Guinness. More Guinness flows from the bar's taps alongside draft and bottled brews, while 2 Gingers Irish Whiskey flavors most of the pub's cocktails. In addition to the food, each libation complements weekly entertainment such as Monday trivia, as well as live music and DJs on weekends.
