THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED James Joyce Irish Pub Restaurant Review

: Peering from behind his trademark spectacles, Irish author James Joyce's distinctive image watches over the pub like a demi-god. His visage is enshrined in a large black-and white photograph and in etchings scattered here and there. Dark woods and Tudor-style half-timbered architecture lend authenticity to the atmosphere. We suggest the good soda bread and main courses including fish 'n' chips, bangers and mash, and the Irish stew, but the Joyce also dishes up a good burger. Especially lovely is the "black and bleu" with blue cheese and bacon. Lots of beers on draft are the draw, including the locally brewed Wild Heaven. Irish breakfast on Saturday or Sunday comes with all the trimmings, including optional black-and-white puddin' and beans. Dessert, if you can fit it in, should be the bread pudding. Family owned, the pub is personally overseen by Denise and Michael Gerard and her parents, Pat and Sean Myler, all Dubliners, originally. This team also owns the lively Brewhouse Café in Little Five Points.
