Celebrate the saint who didn’t like snakes at these venues with special St. Patrick’s Day menus.
At Tamo in the Seaport Hotel (www.seaportboston.com), Irish folk band Geese in the Bog plays shanties while chef Rachel Klein serves Guinness oyster shooters and Asian-style corned beef and cabbage rolls.
At Cuffs (www.doylecollection.com) in the Back Bay Hotel, chow on a “toastie” (grilled sandwich) filled with Irish bacon and cheddar cheese, baby Irish sausages in Guinness beer batter and Doyle’s Dublin Coddle — grilled Irish pork sausage with potato puree and bacon-vegetable stew.
Patrons at neighborhood favorite Irish Village (www.irishvillagebrighton.com) enjoy free corned-beef sandwiches on this special occasion.
Davio’s Northern Italian Steakhouse’s (www.davios.com) “Felice San Patrizio” is a three-course prix fixe ($40). It features fusilli with a basil pesto, grape tomatoes and shaved Parmigiano; beer-braised corned beef with cabbage, carrots, turnips and spinach potato gnocchi; and minted chocolate-chip ice cream with a chocolate-dipped shortbread cookie. For something lighter, Davio’s suave bar has corned beef and cabbage spring rolls for a buck a pop.
At Grafton Street (www.graftonstreetcambridge.com) in Harvard Square, there’s shepherd’s pie, Guinness beef stew and bartender Paul Barry’s perfect pint. Barry has been pouring Guinness since he was 12, back when he manned taps in Waterford, Ireland.
