The Red Leprechaun
If your idea of corned beef is a slab of dry, tough meat, then you haven't been to The Red Leprechaun. This Irish-American pub brines its own corned beef for seven days before slowly cooking it until the meat practically falls apart. Being able to make corned beef this tender is in owner Tracy Ames's blood, though she actually learned to cook in Santa Fe, New Mexico, not in her native Cork County, Ireland.
It was in Santa Fe that she developed her passion for all types of food and learned the cooking techniques she now uses to create her eatery's dishes, including blue crab cakes in walnut pesto and lamb sliders with garlic aioli. To complement the New Celtic cuisine, bartenders pull drafts of local craft beers and Guinness behind a hand-carved bar that's more than 110 years old. They'll even fill up bottles with wine or beer to go.
Plus, like the pubs back in Ireland, The Red Leprechaun welcomes all kinds of guests—even the occasional nonhuman one. On their outdoor patio, patrons might see the pub's resident pooch, Murphy, who has been known to sport festive sweaters when the temperature drops.
