The Irish House Restaurant Review

: The brainchild of chef Matt Murphy, former executive chef at The Ritz-Carlton, New Orleans, The Irish House showcases his Irish roots in every corner. This big, raucous St. Charles Avenue gathering place is as appropriate for a quick bite at the bar (where bangers and mash are a staple, along with beer-battered fish ‘n’ chips) as it is for a leisurely dinner in the dining room, perhaps something as simple as chicken breast stuffed with garlic spinach butter or as clever as braised lamb shanks in apple-brandy broth over stone-ground grits. Irish favorites including shepherd’s pie, Guinness beef stew and shaved corned beef are always available, and Irish breakfast, complete with black-and-white pudding, is served all day. The desserts all are tempting, but the sticky toffee pudding keeps dinner in the Gaelic family; consider, too, Guinness chocolate trifle, with whiskey ganache and Baileys icing. While there are decent wines, this place is more about beer. Some five dozen selections are on regular offer, with at least a dozen on tap. If you happen to be in the area on Mardi Gras, The Irish House parking lot is the place to party and watch the parades.

Had a fantastic time at this Irish pub in New Orleans. It was just like the pubs back home in Ireland - great music and atmosphere! My husband loved the fish & chips and Guinness and I had the bangers & mash with Magners - both of us finished every bite. We were in on a night when there was a real "trad session" and the Chef invited us to join in. What a great night!
