Chicago, Illinois: Mrs. Murphy & Sons Irish Bistro   by By Judy Worley


The ambiance of "Mrs. Murphy and Sons" is of Irish elegance with magnificent intricate woodwork and striking pastel colors throughout. The solid oak U shaped bar is beautifully designed with solid oak crown molds and high back leather bar chairs for a relaxing contemporary Irish atmosphere.

While relaxing at the bar, enjoy one of the 15 different types of draught beer or one of the 21 varieties of bottled beer available or for something really light and flavorful try the Cider Ale. It goes great with Bunch or Dinner. For your dining pleasures, the dining area is elegantly designed with picture perfect table settings of white linen table clothes, long stem glassware and lit tea light candles to create that perfect Irish elegant atmosphere. This is by far the perfect Irish Bistro with a superb and enticing menu to enjoy a relaxing brunch or fabulous dinner with family, friends or colleagues.

Chef Geanne Carlson is noted for being very creative with her fabulous seasonal entrees along with other great dishes and desserts as well. For something absolutely incredible try her Sautéed Oat Crusted Trout stuffed with Bacon and Caramelized Onions, Potato Galette, and Red Wine-Rosemary Jus. Another fabulous entrée is the Pan Roasted Duck Breast with Cardamom-Clove Spice Rub, Sweet Cherries, Wilted Arugula, and Lentil Couscous Pilaf.

She also makes fabulous sandwiches like her Corned Beef glazed with hot brown sugar topped with Sour Red Cabbage and Dubliner Cheese. And I must say it was a very, very good sandwich; it hit my hungry spot perfectly.

Let's not forget the best for last, the dessert. The entire dessert menu is really yummy. I loved the Irish Cream Cheesecake with Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookie Crust and Mocha Chocolate Sauce. It was excellent!

Mrs. Murphy and Sons is not your ordinary Irish Bistro or Pub with fish and chips. This Irish Bistro is a place of elegance that delivers first class, and terrific personalized service with a wait staff that is awesome!

Also for your convenience they have large private rooms available for the larger parties. Beth Murphy and her Sons not only own Mrs. Murphy and Sons Irish Bistro, they also are the proud owners of "Murphy's Bleachers" across from Wrigley Field at 3655 North Sheffield Avenue.
