Late Night Eats

Fast food in a very un-fast-food setting makes this Irish-style chip shop—open till 1 am Fridays and Saturdays—an appealing Old Town stop.

The glossy dark wood and mirrors provide a vintage background for enjoying golden-crusted fried cod ($7) or skate ($8). Fries ($2.75)—or “chips”—are boardwalk-style thick and floppy, and slaw has a nice snap. A lineup of house-made sauces—great tartar, pink Marie Rose, and warm curry—clinch the deal.
