What to Eat at The Whiskey Priest, Now Serving Upscale Irish Fare on the Harbor

The Whiskey Priest, the new gastropub from the folks behind the Atlantic Beer Garden is now open in the former home of the Seaport Bar & Grille. The concept here is, essentially, Boston’s fanciest Irish pub, and the menu, below, contains delicacies like crubins (braised, battered, and fried pig’s trotters), lamb and sweet potato stew, and whiskey-glazed cheese-stuffed ham balls. Scandalously for a harbor restaurant, they’re also serving Manhattan clam chowder. As the name implies, there’s also an ample selection of whiskies — over a hundred pours of the strong stuff. Curious? They’re open tonight until 2 a.m.
