What to Eat, Drink, and Where to Celebrate St. Patrick’s Day in Westchester

Share

An old Irish proverb reads, “It’s easy to halve the potato where there is love.” With St. Patrick’s Day coming up, we’ve rounded up the best things we love to do, see, eat, and drink around the county. With these good eats available, of course, sharing your potato is optional.

Spillane Group Restaurants

The Spillane restaurants are offering the traditional Irish fare you’d expect from these popular restaurants, no green required.

Ben’s Kosher Deli

718 Central Park Ave, Scarsdale
914.468.2367

For all our fellow Irish-Jews out there (we’ve decided the acceptable street terminology is ‘potato knish’), Westchester’s favorite Jewish deli is going all-out for St. Pat’s with its annual Corned Beef Celebration. That fresh, fresh USDA choice brisket is cured in-house, and will be served up both as catering options for ten people or in the dining room, as combos featuring corned beef, cabbage, and potato platters, sandwiches, and Ben’s legendary soup. Hey, it’s St. Patty’s Day; everybody’s Irish.
