We were especially surprised to discover that they have actually created a garden in the back (who knew the Austin mall even had an open air space back there? I certainly didn’t!) where you can dine and where they will soon have a full bar. The staff, all of whom were very friendly and welcoming, said they will be rolling out their full menu in the coming week. Until then, you can feast your eyes on these pictures:

The Big 5-0 For The Irish Cottage

Here’s a nice write-up — with some cool pictures to boot — from The Irish Emigrant about the Irish Cottage Bar and Restaurant located at 108-07 72nd Ave. in Forest Hills celebrating its 50th anniversary.

As a side note, the combination of back to work after the holiday weekend and this heat wave has resulted in my brain being fried today. I can barely type!! 🙂
