As the saying goes, everyone is Irish on Saint Patrick’s Day, but that doesn’t mean you need to drink pints of Irish stout, do Irish Car Bombs, or gulp green beer to qualify! If you’re looking for a tasty cocktail to enjoy for the occasion, stop by Executive Chef Tim Goodell’s Public Kitchen & Bar, located at the Historic Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel, and you might find yourself feeling a little luckier!
Public Kitchen & Bar is serving The Irish Buck ($12) all day long, and it’s the result of arugula, lemon juice, agave, Jameson, ginger beer, and green chartreuse shaken, strained, and served in a highball glass.
Another incentive to stop by this Sunday is for diners to try their recently launched market-driven Sunday brunch, offered from 11am-3pm, which includes signature (green) dishes like the Kale salad with currants, pine nuts, pancetta breadcrumbs, and garlic dressing, as well as classic items like Lemon and Ricotta pancakes with Vermont maple syrup; Shrimp & Grits with a sunny egg, piquilla, feta, and cilantro; and Short Rib Hash with bacon, truffle butter, and Brussels sprouts for $29 per person (only buffet) or $42 per person (brunch experience.)
Just in case anyone still needs a post-“Irish fix” after Saint Patrick’s Day, 25 Degrees offers their signature Guinness Milkshake all year-round ($8,) which mixes the popular Irish dry stout with house-made chocolate sauce and vanilla ice cream.
