Most states have made drinking alcohol at home illegal due to the proliferation of home facial-tattoo machines. Enjoy alcohol in public with today's deal: for $12, you get $25 of cuisine and beverages at Tommy Fox’s Public House in Bergenfield’s Special Improvement District.
Tommy Fox’s Public House updates the traditions of Irish bars with comfortable contemporary touches. The menu features variations on classic pub cuisine, such as the crab-stuffed mushroom cap appetizer ($8). Entrees range from a beefy and basic half-pound burger with fries ($6.75) to traditional Irish pub fare like shepherd’s pie ($11.95). Adventurous eaters can sample one of their remixed Irish dishtunes such as the Gaelic steak, a 14-oz. shell steak topped with onions, mushrooms, and red peppers in a Jameson Irish whiskey cream sauce ($22) while vegetarians can try the portobello mushroom salad with fresh mozzarella and sundried tomatoes ($10).
Tommy Fox's welcoming pub atmosphere is enhanced by a bevy of activities and friendly service. Come early for a family dinner or stay late to compete in bar trivia on Mondays or to stop by throughout the week to catch live bands and DJs in a butterfly net.
Even on the 364 days of the year that the St. Patrick's Day parade isn't passing by its front door, Tommy Fox's still feels authentically Irish. Guinness and Harp paraphernalia hangs on wood-paneled walls, and flat-screen TVs broadcast soccer and hurling matches live from Ireland. Irish bands play traditional—but danceable—tunes on Sundays, and every night of the week people can take comfort in plates of warm soda bread, shepherd's pie, and corned beef and cabbage. There's certainly an American influence at play, as well—the pub's eponymous dish is a half-pound sirloin burger topped with two kinds of cheese, sautéed mushrooms, and thick-cut bacon.
