Parking lot and street
lamps and wooden planks decorate the family-friendly restaurant Dan
Foley’s in Maspeth.
Completing renovations in May, owners wanted to make the bar and
restaurant less formal—and what better way to do so than to name the
restaurant after an Irish pub owner (and friend of one of the owners) Dan
Foley, whose pub has been featured on postcards.
nine special summery drinks, 11 different martini options, and a plethora
of dishes to choose from, this restaurant-bar has been a favorite among
customers open to a continental assortment of hearty dishes ranging from
traditional Irish cuisine like Fish and Chips to Yankee Pot Roast.
Yankee pot roast dish ($11.95)—one of the more popular choices according
to the waitress—is comprised of tender beef, crispy potato pancakes with
apple sauce, and vegetables lightly brushed in butter, along with a fresh
garden salad to start.
But the fresh fish, in the form of Fish and Chips, Shrimp
Fettuccini or Poached Norwegian Salmon, acquired out from Montauk Bay on
Long Island is also a winner, owners say.
The Beef Barley and French Onion Soups are said to be excellent as
to be missed is the Peach Melba, consisting of half a peach, vanilla ice
cream, and topped with raspberry sauce ($3.25) or the Flaky Puff Pastry
($3.95) together with
specialty drinks like the Leapin’ Leprechaun ($4.50) made up of
Bailey’s, coffee, Kahlua, and whipped cream or Irish coffee.
Adjoining catering hall Durows-owned and operated by the same
people also offers space for first-rate weddings, showers, birthdays,
Christenings, anniversaries and business events with a capacity of
approximately 250 guests.
