O'Dowd's Gastrobar?


So last summer I was bragging to a couple of the "Usual Suspects" about O'Dowd's Irish Pub here on the beautiful K.C. Plaza. We have been frequenting this establishment for more years that I care to recall. On this one particular day when I was full of hope for the newbies, I found it to be closed for remodeling.

Keep in mind that the original Irish Pub was transported piece by piece from Ireland and at one time rankled as one of the top ten Irish Pubs in the U.S.

Well last Saturday Central Patti and I finally went inside to check it out. While the atmosphere was very sterile compared to the old antique look, it was definitely more spacious and warm.

We went up to the upstairs deck for a couple of V.T's and to have a cigar. It was a beautiful day so we asked for a menu to look it over. All of the standbys (boxty's, shepherds pie, fish and chips etc.) They also added many new items. We choose a few from the appetizer list: Parmesan zucchini chips, roasted beets, smoked salmon with flat bread, and lamb egg rolls. The overall rating was Excellent!

We enjoyed the next few hours eating, drinking many a V.T. and smoking cigars all while enjoying the fine spring day. So while I really liked O'Dowd's Irish Pub, I give O'Dowd's Gastrobar a big thumbs up!
