A Thoughtful St. Patrick's Day at Elizabeth's!


      St. Patrick's Day is a very special day for us here at Elizabeth's Neighborhood Table.   While the history of St. Patrick is significant, we all know what the day now represents.  Well that's not the way Elizabeth grew up.   Elizabeth's family, The O'Leary's, still reside in Elizabeth's hometown outside of Boston, and are very involved in the community there.  To us St. Patrick's day is a day to remember our common history and celebrate our heritage.  It's a fun day when everyone is Irish!  While others may chose to celebrate in Irish pubs with green beer, the O'Leary's were always more about the food!  Elizabeth looked forward to the special items she only saw come out of Nana's kitchen  a few times a year.  The smell of the corned beef slow cooking on the stove, the warm soda bread baking in the oven, the stew (oh the stew!)  the large tables full of brothers, sisters, aunts, uncles, cousins and the occasional neighbor from next door.  St. Patrick's day for us is simple, it's about family and food! 

That is the feeling we bring to St. Patrick's day today.  We appreciate that  nip of something nice helps the celebration (and we are all for that!),  but when you've grown all up you are looking for something a little more.    So leave the downtown rookies at the Irish pub with their green beer and celebrate Thoughtfully with us!  We are happy to share our St. Patrick's menu which is inspired by Nana O'Leary's kitchen!
