The Star and Shamrock is a New York- style deli and traditional Irish pub. Sound like a contradiction? Jewish and Irish cultures, celebrated (and tormented!), have more in common than you'd think! Misery loves company-- Oy Vey! So come in and enjoy the best of both in one place!

    They no longer make the Clogger (RIP), but Bullfrog Bagels are excellent.

    This place is great, but a snakebite is lager & cider, not lager & Guinness. Also, the homemade "matzo"rella sticks are killer.

    This Irish pub is also a Jewish deli. Yes, really. It's also got three (3!) Wi-Fi networks, all free, and none of them have passwords. Yes, really. Best of all, the wifi is actually fast. Yes, really.

    Order the Clogger without reservation. It's a "sandwich," like the Grand Canyon is a "hole." Way beyond your expectations.
