Fado Irish Pub Unveils New Menu in TIme for Saint Patrick’s Day
New “shareable” plates, customizable fries, and fabulous sliders

I have always thought of Fado as a place to drink and hear Irish music (of which I am very fond), rather than as a destination restaurant. As the folks at Fado themselves have often joked, “One never says, 'Hey- tonight should we do sushi, Italian or Irish?'”.
Boxty is also topped with smoked salmon, capers, light horseradish sauce and red onion to make Smoked Salmon Bites ($8.95). I can’t imagine a better base than Boxty for these delectable morsels. The fried potato and smoked salmon were absolutely harmonious, perfectly matched, the warm and crunchy Boxty accenting the chilled, smoky salmon.
If you haven’t had dinner at Fado in a few years, it is definitely time to go back. This Sunday, Fado will be holding their biggest St. Patrick’s Day Party to date! The doors will open at 9 am. An outdoor street festival will start at noon, with two stages featuring live music from ESPADA, Mysterious Ways, Traveler, The Enemies, Flash Point, Raising Jane, The Tea Merchants, and Sean Orr!
