Shebeen Chic information
Cracked chandeliers, paintings hung at odd angles and ne'er a matching table-and-chair set create the suitably ramshackle tone for a restaurant whose name comes from the Irish word for 'illegal drinking establishment'. The menu reads like it was written by Tom Waits: 'spudballs with broccoli, mushrooms and auld cheddar', or 'leek, spud and maybe mud' are representatives of a cuisine best described as 'Irish with attitude'. In the basement is a bar with a speakeasy vibe.
