According to Maslow's hierarchy of needs, humans cannot attain self-actualization without first tending to such basic physiological needs as water, sleep, and brisket. Achieve overall fulfillment with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of upscale pub fare at The Irish House.
Executive chef Matt Murphy delights diners at breakfast, lunch, and dinner with traditional Irish fare and gourmet pub cuisine sprinkled with Gaelic influence. Make a morning Dublinesque with the Full Irish Breakfast, which sates trilling tummies with two sunny-side-up eggs, irish sausage, roasted mushrooms, and potato hash ($11.75), or seek the sweeter side with banana-and-pecan oatmeal pancakes drizzled with Irish whiskey-caramel sauce ($7.50). Midday's corned beef and provolone sandwich arrives grilled and layered with a fried egg ($8.75), its gravity-defying heights the despair of hungry Newtons everywhere. Open a delectable dinner with a plate of slow-cooked smoked lamb belly, buoyed by a polenta green-onion cake ($10), or move straight to a main course of fig- and brie-stuffed muscovy duck breast dressed with a sour-cherry brandy sauce ($23.95).
Sated patrons relax amid The Irish House's sleek dining room as they spoon up Bailey's-topped vanilla ice cream ($5.25), churned from the milk of a cocktail-loving cow. Of-age guests may quench their thirst with selections from 12 draught beers or numerous bottles, or lounge on one of the bar's leather couches and chat with old friends or roaming Guinness toucans.
