Leave it to the high-energy team at Raglan Road Irish Pub & Restaurant to come up with an unbeatable combo for Sunday brunch: deliciously authentic Irish cuisine and foot-stomping Irish dancers with live music. It’s an experience we can’t wait to repeat.

If you’re tired of quiche, bacon and eggs, Chef Kevin Dundon has a menu that carries you across the pond to Ireland. Start with the Raglan Road version of a Bloody Mary topped with a Guinness floater, or a bubbly Elderflower Fizz with St. Germain and prosecco, then dig into the classic Full Irish Breakfast with sausage, black-and-white pudding, bacon, roasted tomato, mushrooms, fried eggs and potato roasties (tiny potatoes cooked with a touch of duck fat). We recommend Kevin’s Ham Schnitzel, a plate full of breaded, pan-seared ham topped with a fried eggs and a side of chips (fat potato fries). Or a stack of thin pancakes layered with mixed berry compote and topped with crème fraîche and maple syrup. If you must count calories, there’s a simple smoked salmon omelet or steel-cut oatmeal. But since brunch so often is about indulging for the day, there’s also a rendition of Eggs Benedict with a rich hollandaise and prosciutto.

Entertainment starts at noon with Creel, the Raglan Road house band – a fantastic duo that wows with the fiddle, flute, guitar and vocals. And the energetic Raglan Road Dancers show off their quick, intricate footwork with stepdances.
