With a name like Finn McCools and an atmosphere of an authentic Irish pub (with names included on the front of the bathrooms as Blokes and Colleens (meaning Boy & Girl in Gaelic, respectively), one might think a menu faire would only consist of an authentic Irish cuisine. All of which it does, but my dining companion and I decided to try their extensive American faire menu. I had Sharon’s Wrap: a vegetarian sandwich consisting of baby spinach, warm goat cheese, roasted red pepper, cucumber tomatoes and my personal favorite staple on any sandwich, avocado mixed with a balsamic dressing. It was served with chips that were crunchy and delicious. My dining companion and fabulous co-worker and friend Melinda tried their warm chicken sandwich with avocado, bleu cheese, bacon, tomato, lettuce and cilantro cream cheese all on grilled flat bread served with the same crunchy and delicious chips. Needless to say, Melinda and I ate every morsel on our plates and are ready to go back and try their more authentic Irish dishes. It would be disservice to my heritage not to try it out!
