When the weather gets cold, who doesn’t swoon at the thought of hearty Irish comfort food? Co-owners and fellow Irishmen Ray Dunlea and executive chef Shaun Brady have three goals at Brady’s Public House: Serve good Irish food when you’re hungry, a well-made drink when you’re thirsty and provide a warm, inviting place to enjoy them both.
They’ve succeeded on all fronts. Try the classic cottage pie, with ground beef, brown gravy, root vegetables and a blanket of fluffy mashed potatoes. You’ll savor the crunch of Brady’s fish and chips, served with traditional mushy peas and housemade tartar sauce.
For brunch, enjoy a classic Irish breakfast complete with bacon, sausage, black pudding, white pudding, baked beans, eggs and toast. Pair any of those with a warming glass or two of good Irish whiskey, local beer or a pint of Guinness from the handsome new bar.
