Where to Get Shepherd’s Pie for St. Patrick’s Day in Westchester

If you crave more than a wee bit of food this St. Patrick’s Day, we recommend a shepherd’s pie from one of these Westchester restaurants.

There are multiple tales to how the comforting and cozy dish, shepherd’s pie, got its name. One of the most popular is that it evolved from the dish “cottage pie,” which consisted of leftover meat and cheap potatoes. The name “cottage pie” suggested that the consumers of the dish were poor Irish folks that lived in cottages. It became known as shepherd’s pie when lamb started to be used as the main meat ingredient.

Shepherd’s pie recipes can differ slightly, but they all have the same basic structure of ground meat cooked in gravy and vegetables, and a mashed potato crust on top, and sometimes the bottom.

Shamrock and roll down to one of these spots to taste traditional shepherd’s pie right here in Westchester.
