Boston has dozens of Irish pubs, but very few are notable for food—this pub being a welcome exception. Even with a hefty renovation in 2010, this place has maintained its heart, making real poetry out of thick slabs of bread and butter served on wooden boards, giant servings of soup, fish-and-chips presented in a twist of newspaper, and shepherd's pie. Don't miss the house-made ketchup with your French fries or the traditional Irish breakfast consisting of Irish sausage
and bacon, potatoes, black and white pudding, beans, and eggs.
