New FoodBurgh Meetup: Molly Brannigan's

From: Mike
Sent on: Saturday, March 13, 2010 9:20 AM
I Just scheduled another FoodBurgh meetup. This time, I'm going to try Molly Brannigan's in Mt Lebanon. Let's see how well they stack up to the Harp and Fiddle! Maybe we'll even hit up some Irish Pubs next month.

What: Molly Brannigans (Mt Lebanon)
When: Wednesday, March 31,[masked]:30 PM

Where:
Molly Brannigans
660 Washington Rd
Pittsburgh, PA 15228
[masked]

In a trend not really related to St Patrick's Day, I've been on a bit of an Irish Pub kick lately. In the 'Burgh, we're fortunate to have a handful of them: I can think of Molly Brannigans, The Harp and Fiddle, Piper's Pub (loosely), and Claddagh's--and that's just off the top of my head.

So far, the only one I haven't been to is Molly Brannigan's: I'm hoping later this month, we can fix that.

According to the site, Molly Brannigan was a philanthropist of legend in Ireland. I like to think that figure is highly interrelated with Molly Mallone. For those of you who aren't students of Irish culture (and I'm not, really), Mallone is almost a Clara Barton of the Irish--except kind of in a Paul Bunyan style of not really being all that well documented. Though she does have a song and a statue.

The restaurant itself really has no affiliation with the woman, other than a marketing pitch, but the menu looks good, and I'd be willing to give them a try. With three locations throughout the state, it is technically a chain, but I'll concede there are actually some strong benefits to scaling up. Three restaurants is hardly enough to make any establishment a corporate behemoth.

I suspect that, much like Mad Mex, we'll be able to get over the chain thing and have a great time time at a place deserving of our support.
