Make like Dr. Seuss and color your breakfast green with green bagels -- egg bagels dyed as bright as a leprechaun’s hat. Part Irish, part Jewish, green bagels are all delicious in spite of their utterly unnatural hue. For a patriotic sandwich, top your bagel with lox & schmear, creating an edible Irish flag of orange, white, and green. In Seattle, Blazing Bagels, Seattle Bagel Company, and Bagel Oasis will be serving this St. Pat's special.
For those who fancy Irish food and prefer a calm, charming café to a raucous, Irish pub, head to Capitol Hill's Volunteer Park Café. On the eve of St. Patty’s, March 16th, their Sunday Supper featuring a menu of Emerald Isle classics. Enjoy Irish soda bread, stout–glazed corned beef, lamb shepherd’s pie, and a Guiness float with house-made Bailey’s ice cream. Dinner is $40 at 6pm, and reservations are required.
