Padriac's Restaurant Review

: Since 1998, Padriac's has specialized in serving its neighbors well-prepared food from a variety of culinary traditions. As in Ireland, it's not uncommon to find dishes ranging across cuisines; indeed many pubs in Ireland serve lasagna. St. Patrick's Day will find a few classic Irish dishes in the house, along the lines of corned beef and cabbage, but not otherwise. Southern tastes and the occasional Caribbean morsel make for a wide-ranging feast. Although the term “rare” doesn’t seem to be in the chef’s vocabulary where burgers are concerned, you do get a hefty two-hander for your trouble. Top it with blue cheese and it's a good deal. Crispy fried calamari comes intermingled with lovely, freshly crumbed fried okra and (look out!) similar-looking jalapeño peppers, and we like to snack on the wings. Dinner features platters to share and small plates, as well as ample entrées. For late-night, classic bar nibbles are the focus, such as chicken tacos with salsa. There are some 40 beers to choose from on draught.
