This St. Patrick's Day won't have big parades and crowds donning green, but that doesn't mean you can't find a way to toast to the Irish holiday. Looking for a way to celebrate? Here's where to find a taste of the luck of the Irish.
Annie Gunn's is offering an Irish feast for two in Chesterfield that's available for curbside pickup on March 16 and 17. For $125 (tax and gratuity not included) you will start your meal with smoked Irish salmon with a horseradish dill sauce and corned beef and cabbage potato skins. Enjoy an Irish pub salad (romaine lettuce, tomatoes, sweet onions, bacon, cucumbers, boiled egg, mustard dressing, Irish Cheddar) before the main course: housemade corned beef with Irish bangers, braised cabbage, boiled potatoes, soda bread and Irish butter. For dessert, Danielle Luisi of Sweet Pea's Bakery is serving up a chocolate Guinness cake with vanilla buttercream and a Jameson salted caramel. Call Annie Gunn's to place your order.
