Pikes Pick: Now's the time to try Irish boxty

March 13, 2017 Updated: March 20, 2017 at 1:47 pm

"Boxty on the griddle, boxty on the pan; if you can't make boxty, you'll never get a man," or so goes the old Irish rhyme - which, if it were true, would make America pretty much a nation of singletons. Though it has been popular in Ireland since the 1700s, the dish of fried potato pancakes is little known here outside Hibernophile circles. Jack Quinn's Irish Pub, 21 S. Tejon St., serves several varieties of boxty, including one filled with beef strips braised in Guinness stout. Info: jackquinnspub.com.
