Fado Restaurant Review

: Straight out of a James Joyce novel, this chummy pub offers antique wooden carvings, a fireplace and even snugs, which are private nooks ideal for snuggling. There's Guinness on draft and the food is new Irish, with a contemporary spin on classics such as boxty---a filled potato pancake---or rich bread pudding. Check out the corned beef wrapped in a boxty or smoked salmon on top of one. Choose a burger flavored with Smithwick's Ale or even a Philly cheesesteak, if you like. The fish ā€˜nā€™ chips just need a bit of vinegar to conjure up a Dublin pub. For dessert, brown bread ice cream is terrific. There is always a soccer match on the telly---the regulars are passionate about "football."
