Everyone’s Irish! 

Slainte to all of you, and to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day we have three Pubs to bring you all the green beer, Irish-friendly menus, and fun on Food Farms & Chefs!

We first heard from friend a of the show, McGillin’s Olde Ale House and their amazing General Manager, Gabrielle Rubery.  As one of the oldest pubs in the country, this local favorite has some fame of its own. McGillin’s, which is the oldest pub in Philadelphia, has been in Owner Chris Mullins’ family since 1958. It’s so famous that people travel from across the globe to dine and drink at McGillin’s. On St. Patrick’s Day the green beer is kept flowing, and don’t be surprised if you find your future love when you visit.  On top of all the festivities that happen throughout the year, McGillin’s seems to offer good luck to people’s love life…and has seen many couples pop the question in their pub.

Speaking of festivities, we spoke with Dooney’s Pub’s Director of Operations, Ariane Bonnes to chat about how Jim and Mary Dooney started their restaurant & pub, as well as the menu, events, and how the couple gives back to their community. As for their menu, Dooney’s offers seasonal cocktails, so look for their Spring drinks menu (out now), and since they are deeply rooted in all things Irish, look for some traditional items, like Bangers & Mash, Shepards Pie, and Guinness Beef Stew year-round.

Lastly, we spoke with the Co-Owner of Cresson Inn, Tracy Harding and how he and his childhood friend re-established The Cresson Inn as a neighborhood pub in Manayunk.  Originally founded during the prohibition era, the location started as an Inn before being turned into a shoe store with a booming speakeasy in the basement.  Over the years the business changed hands (and purposes) within co-owners Sanders and Hardy’s families before Tracy & his wife took over ownership.  Now, Harding & Sanders are preparing to celebrate their One-Year Anniversary (on St. Patrick’s Day), and joined us to let you know all the details!
