Yountville, CA - Napa Valley Irishman Bob Hurley is getting ready to celebrate his own brand of Saint Patrick's Day at Hurley's Restaurant & Bar in Yountville. When March 17th rolls around most people come for the corned beef and cabbage - cured six weeks in house. But Chef Hurley also plans to get back to his roots in County Kerry and showcase what the Emerald Isle does best despite the short summers and rocky soil. He feels that the secret and beauty of Irish cookery lies in its simplicity. The menu, written in Gaelic, will feature Breac Bácáilte (whole baked trout with cockles, mussels, new potatoes and pearl onions), Gaelic Stú (Irish stew), Brat Caoireola (Irish farmhouse soup with peas, barley, carrots, onions and lamb), Ciste Visce Beatha (Irish whiskey cake) and of course his own corned beef and cabbage and more. Classic Irish potato preparations of the day will be Champ (mashed potatoes with melted butter and green onions) and Boxty (Irish potato pancake). For those who can't get enough of the restaurant's favorite dishes the regular menu will also be available.
And in the proud tradition of St. Patrick's Day, Chef Hurley is delighted to present his favorite Irish farmhouse cheeses in a carefully selected assortment.  For decades Irish cheeses were a secret, enjoyed only by our friends "across the pond."  What better time to discover these marvelous cheeses than March 17th, the day where everything goes green!!

 To compliment the Irish fare will be those other staples of a happy Saint Patrick's Day: Irish beer (including pints of Guinness) and Irish whiskey. The restaurant's bar will have a good supply of both to comfort the Irish, and those who are Irish just one day a year. And, this being the heart of Wine Country, there will be the normal compliment of fine wines by the bottle, half bottle and glass, with an emphasis on local bottlings.

Hurley's will be serving their Saint Patrick's Day specials on March 17th from 11:30 AM until 10:00 PM and reservations are recommended. Hurley's Restaurant & Bar is located at 6518 Washington Street, Yountville, CA in the heart of the Napa Valley off Highway 29. For reservations call (707) 944-2345 or on the web at
