Ever wonder if our Irish neighbors ring in St. Patrick's Day with beer and extreme-green treats? Spoiler alert: the Irish celebrate the feast day of the patron saint of Ireland a little differently.
This Sunday, Weekend Express is going behind the scenes of an authentic Dublin pub to see how the Irish ring in the holiday. Based in Atlanta, the Marlay House is the real deal as far as Irish food is concerned. Gayot named the Georgia restaurant one of the top 10 Irish pubs in the United States. The owners are brothers and a sister who emigrated to the U.S. from Dublin.
Chef Zachary Thigpen serves up traditional Irish classics like fish and chips, shepherd's pie, a pint of Guinness and of course, Guinness chocolate cake. Don't worry, we left out the mushy peas.
