Many years ago, when we were visiting Syracuse, New York, my wife and I had dinner at a "famous authentic Irish pub" called Coleman's. I don't remember much about that dinner--this is certainly not intended as a review of that place--but I do know that on several return visits to/through Syracuse, we have not felt any urge to return to Coleman's.
I should have remembered all this history when we stumbled upon this sister pub in Washington, run by a member of the same family, and also billing itself as a "famous authentic Irish pub". Service was good, prices overall were reasonable, but that doesn't compensate for mushy fish and chips nor flavourless bread pudding nor the special dessert of the day, a Chocolate Cream Pie, that even the late Sara Lee would have rejected out of hand. The only good part of the meal was my wife's rich, creamy potato soup.
