St Patrick’s Day at Windward Passage

Last night the Windward Passage offered a lean corned beef and cabbage entree in celebration of St Patrick’s Day, however corned beef is not considered an Irish national dish and stems from early Irish American culture.

In Ireland their closest traditional dish is bacon and cabbage, but when Irish immigrants moved to this country in the eighteenth century they substituted corned beef considered a luxury item in their home country because of it’s lower price compared to bacon.

If you want to try Windward’s corned beef and cabbage it’s our Wednesday lunch special every week. As far as the picture goes, the group above was one of the last to leave the restaurant and I guess it shows if you love the Windward customers they love you back !
