• Celtic Crossing Irish Pub and Restaurant in Cooper-Young has named a new chef and launched a new menu.
Chef Garrett Quinn, who has been with the Midtown staple since 2014, spearheaded the menu overhaul to offer a unique twist on traditional Irish fare with high quality ingredients. The new menu launched August 30 and includes fried calamari and savory turnovers, soups rotated every week, and a candied pecan salad as a new lighter option. The Irish nacho, a Cletic favorite, are redubbed dirty chips and come with new toppings, including Irish poutine and cheese and bacon. Several pub classics will be added, including ham and pimento cheese sliders and a steak sandwich.
