Whether you’re Irish or not, St. Patrick’s Day is a time to let loose your inner culinary monster by enjoying limited time food at the Disneyland Resort. Several restaurants in the Downtown Disney District will be offering special menus featuring items that pay homage to Irish heritage. Of course for some people, the day would not be complete without a wee bit of Guinness Stout, green beer and, perhaps, a little whiskey.
For the traditionalists, you can find corned beef, cabbage, and potatoes at Ralph Brennan’s Jazz Kitchen and the ESPN Zone restaurants. Both places will also have the famous green beer and Guinness. You can also find Jorge’s Bayou Leprechaun cocktail at the Jazz Kitchen for those seeking a pot of gold at the end of the mixed drink rainbow.
May the road rise to meet you if attempting to sample all the dishes offered by Crossroads Restaurant at House of Blues. The list of Irish fare include corned beef sliders, Guiness beer cheese soup, fish and chips, as well as traditional Reuben sandwiches. Green beer, Guinness, and a mixed cocktail specials featuring Jameson Whiskey will be available for those looking to indulge.
You might say “A hundred thousand welcomes” to Catal Restaurant and Uva Bar for providing all their specialty dishes during the entire month of March (ok, at least 31 welcomes?) . Picture a sandwich piled high with sliced corned beef brisket, a thick cut of Swiss cheese, house-made sauerkraut and “secret” sauce all served inside a marbled rye rustic roll. Not sure about you, but my mouth is watering! On the side, you can get a mess of their famous garlic fries. Wash it all down with a Red Trolley Irish Red Ale.
The fun doesn’t end with the food though. Plenty of live entertainment will be taking place all throughout the area including karaoke, bands, and Celtic dancers. So, put on some green clothes, kiss a blarney stone if you have one, and come on down to commemorate St. Patty on March 17th.
