20 DAYS OF GIVEAWAYS: St. Patrick’s Day: A Quiet(er) Bite

|

Give me a reason to celebrate and I’m usually all in. However, modern St. Patrick’s Day festivities feel less inviting than they used to (ahem, face paint, green-hued beverages, plastic beads). This year, I’ve decided to swap the all-day drink-a-thon for a low-key vibe and hearty Irish fare.

Cherry Creek’s Second Home Kitchen + Bar caught my attention for its modern twist on Irish favorites—such as subbing buffalo for beef in the corned bison with braised cabbage, Guinness-glazed carrots, and Yukon Gold potatoes. Other items on chef Jeff Bolton’s holiday menu include lamb stew with Colcannon potatoes and ale gravy and a Bailey’s Irish Cream mousse pie. Drinks, with the inclusion of a St. Patrick’s Day martini (Godiva chocolate vodka, Kahlua, Frangelico, and a touch of Guinness black lager), also stray from tradition.
