In downtown West Palm Beach, on a main street filled with dozens of restaurants and cuisine, a new gastropub-themed establishment has taken root. Known as J. Flynn's Irish gastropub, it's taken up space between the newly opened Oli's Fashion Cuisine and the soon-to-close Dr. Feelgoods club off Clematis Street.

Designed to evoke the dining experience of the famed pubs of Dublin, this new 4,500-square-foot restaurant endeavors to bring a taste of Ireland to South Florida. Co-owners and brother-sister team Elaine and John Flynn, both Ireland natives, enlisted the help of Cleve Mash and consulting chef Frank Eucalitto -- chef-owner of the Palm Beach Gardens restaurant Café Chardonnay -- to create what they term a "modern, gourmet-inspired take" on the Irish pub experience.

The menu is what you would expect from an Ireland native, with a good selection of traditional Irish dishes, each given a mini-makeover. Dishes range from starters and salads and sandwiches, to a number of small and large plates and desserts. A few examples: sweet corn and crab fritters with honey mustard dipping sauce, a puff pastry wrapped Ruben sandwich, and a non-traditional bangers and mash with chicken sausage roasted with garlic, onions and Tuscan olive oil over roasted garlic mashed potatoes. Looking for something a bit more authentic? Staples like fish and chips and shepard's pie can also be found. For those with food allergies, gluten-free pasta and bread are available.

"We wanted patrons to have a true, Dublin pub experience--from the details in the design and furnishings, to the lively atmosphere with televisions showcasing football and World Cup, Euro Cup and English Premier League," said Flynn. "But our stand-out feature is our incredible menu. We've definitely taken it up a notch from what you'd find in traditional Irish pubs. It's different, contemporary and delicious, while ensuring it's still affordable and approachable."
