Fadó Irish Pub & Restaurant
273 Buckhead Avenue
Atlanta, GA 30305
There are few places more comforting than an Irish pub. You instantly pick up on the neighborhood vibe, happy voices carry enthusiastically through the room and the beer is flowing… what more could you want? There’s not much better place to while away a little time with a good friend, a pint and some hot food.
I met up with a friend recently for a late dinner to catch up and we decided to venture out to Fadó in Buckhead. We made our way to the restaurant, which is tucked away on a side street, and walked into a lively scene of diners enjoying themselves in the shadows created from the beautiful, cascading woodwork and billowing flags in the pub.
Since it wouldn’t be right to start out without a pint, I chose a Guinness to begin and my friend ordered a glass of Kilkenny Cream Ale. We perused the dinner menu and decided to start with the Corned Beef Rolls ($7.95). I grew up eating (and mostly enjoying) corned beef and cabbage, but this was a step above the time-honored Irish favorite. In this appetizer version, the corned beef and cabbage find themselves wrapped neatly in small rolls of a traditional boxty (or potato pancake) and topped with a cabbage slaw. This was our favorite dish of the night; a modern twist on an old classic. [Read more…]
