Ri Ra Irish Pub Restaurant Review

: Bits and pieces of antique pubs from Ireland were woven together to craft this authentic Auld Sod replica, including a handsome nineteenth-century bar and parquet flooring from the Harland & Wolff yard where the Titanic was built. Authenticity works in some of the dishes, such as the shepherd’s pie, made with lamb. (Whoever heard of a shepherd herding cows?) Yet the Irish breakfast, served all day, is missing the beans. While there are burgers and wings and such for the American taste, most mains remind you of what you see in pubs in Ireland---cottage pie, fish ‘n’ chips (made with haddock or cod), beef and Guinness stew and the like. Table sides at dinner come in two sizes, a nice touch. We like the tongue in cheek “Emigrant’s corned beef & cabbage,” a dish not found in Ireland but here associated with the Irish. Brunch on Sunday is substantial. This is a great spot to watch “footie” (aka soccer). Coffee is French press. Happy hour rules daily from 4 p.m.-7 p.m., when you’ll find a specially priced food menu at the bar. Beer is the best quaff choice with this fare.
