Baile Corcaigh

Baile Corcaigh, pronounced “bal-ya cor-kee” and meaning the “Town of Cork” according to the website, was my haunt Friday night. I arrived in Corktown, at the corner of Trumbull and Bagley, to find a rather authentic looking Irish pub/restaurant. It was easy to ignore the drop ceiling and enjoy the dark wood and stained glass surroundings. We were intimately entertained by a live Irish band as we dined. The biggest disappointment of the evening was that I could not order the corned beef, as this fare is only offered on Wednesday nights. I suppose I will just have to go back.

    BallyCork is great! The maitre d’ told me the Irish chef refuses to cook corned beef because it’s not Irish–it’s Irish-American. :) Wednesday is his day off! When in doubt, the Dingle Pie is good.

    Thank you, Chris, for that bit of information. With my luck I would have asked the chef myself and been in a lot of trouble :0)
