Get into the spirit of Saint Patrick’s Day at the Hotel Commonwealth, where they’ve got a couple of Ireland-inspired events planned as part of Gaelic Gourmet Gala Week – from the Gaelic Gourmet Gala, to an authentic Irish breakfast at Eastern Standard on Saint Patty’s Day itself.
PLEASE NOTE: the Rattle & Hum event has been canceled.
On Friday, March 16th the Hotel Commonwealth hosts the second annual Gaelic Gourmet Gala. Tickets for the extravaganza of Irish food, drink and culture cost $100 each and include cooking demonstrations by both Ireland and Boston-based celebrity chefs, hors d’oeuvres, wine, beer, cocktails, live jazz and complimentary parking. Look for local culinary talent like Michael Schlow of Great Bay, Radius, Via Matta, and Alta Strada, Andy Husbands of Tremont 647, Ming Tsai of Blue Ginger, Marc Orfaly of Pigalle and Marco, David Ross of Lucca and Sasso and Jamie Bissonnette of Eastern Standard. Call the Hotel Commonwealth at 617.532.5063 to have them set your tickets aside for you.
If that’s still not enough Irish for you, swing by Eastern Standard on Saturday, March 17th for a full fledged Irish breakfast from chef Jamie Bissonnette. Call Eastern Standard at 617.532.9100 to book your table anytime between 8:00am and 1:00pm.
