I was late to the contest, but here's my entry anyway! :)
My friends and I affectionately call O'Murphy's Pub in Montauk, NY, "Mother O'Murphy's"! The food is great, wonderful burgers and shepherd's pie, and fantastic french onion soup. The most important thing, though, besides the Jameson's, is the Perfect Pour of Guinness that they serve.
We've been going there once a year, every summer, since 1988 as part of our annual get together. The manager (owner?) there always greets the seven of us at the door. "We'll start the round of Guinness now" she says before even seating us. It's a wonderful part of our annual tradition and when there's a bartender with a brogue, a few of us will belly up to the bar for a few more rounds of Guinness, interspersed by a Jameson's or three.
We've never had a bad time there. Be well, and thank you!
My favorite is NOT in my local town. Rather in Gettysburg Pennsylvania...... Gary Owens; great food. Great people. Great music.
Who'd a thunk, Kuala Lumpur, that's quite a distance to go for the Perfect Pour! :)
