Meehan's Public House Restaurant Review: Classics from the Irish pub repertoire include shepherd's pie and Irish stew (both made with lamb as they should be), lightly battered fish 'n' chips, and bangers and mash. Traditional Irish breakfast, right down to the black-and-white pudding, is served at all times. The menu rotates every six months, but always includes the famous meatloaf from Food 101, a sister institution. For table-sharing, we especially like the fries with curry sauce, Chip Shop Curry. Colcannon fritters, here made with kale rather than traditional cabbage, are interesting but might be better if made with cabbage. Still other dishes speak local: the fried pickles and the buttermilk-soaked chicken tenders. After that the menu goes international, with everything from Devils on Horseback, bacon-wrapped goat cheese-stuffed Medjool dates, to nachos and burgers, of which there are many. For dessert, focus on the Jameson Irish Whiskey bread pudding. At this family-friendly establishment children are welcomed until 9 p.m.; after that, one must be 21 to enter unless accompanied by a parent. Other locations.
