The Marlay House Restaurant Review:



About the restaurant: The Comer siblings, three Irish ex-pats from Dublin, own this traditional-feeling pub that's also a frequent meeting spot for local pols during elections. Dark woods, low lighting and intimate subspaces create an interesting atmosphere.

Food & Drinks: The kitchen keeps the faith with Irish comfort fare classics of shepherd's pie (although closer to cottage pie as it's made with beef), Guinness-braised beef brisket and blackened snapper. Among the Southern touches are pimento cheese and shrimp and grits. Blueberry bread pudding, warmed in the oven, is the dessert choice. There's a wine list, but this is brew heaven, with options that range across the globe, including many on draught as well as by the bottle. St. Patrick’s Day is taken seriously here. Euro football (soccer that is) is the frequent bill of fare on the TVs, and sometimes there’s Irish music and other genres supplied by local outfits.
