Curragh Irish Pub, Edison Park (Chicago), Illinois
A true taste of Ireland, Curragh Irish Pub – with its carved wood, softly lit dining areas, traditional Irish cuisine, and friendly bar staff – will make you feel like you’ve walked into a place right off Temple Bar.
With full lunch and dinner menus, you’ll be screaming “Érinn go Brách!” as soon as you taste the first bite. Okay, maybe not screaming, but you’ll definitely be grateful for Gaelic favorites like the Black and Tan turkey breast sandwich served on swirl rye with Swiss cheese and Thousand Island dressing.
And what’s an Irish pub without Corned Beef and Cabbage on the menu? Curragh cooks the fresh brisket every day and serves it over cabbage with mashed potatoes and topped with horseradish sauce. The Shepherd’s Pie will tempt your tongue with succulent ground beef, carrots, peas and onions in rich gravy topped with mashed potatoes, baked golden brown, and served with seasonal vegetables and locally made soda bread.
There is also an extensive beer list and spirits menu!
