Best Corned Beef and Cabbage in Bay Ridge



For St. Patrick’s Day, we always cook our own corned beef and cabbage. But this blog received several requests asking, “Where can I get the best corned  beef and cabbage in Brooklyn?”


Many years ago, I went to Kennedy’s in Breezy Point, but there food didn’t have the same flavor as my family’s recipe. I would think the closest in Brooklyn would be Buckley  2926 Avenue S


  • The Wicked Monk 9510 3rd Avenue has good corned beef and cabbage – we had it last year.





  • Pippins Pub – 9023 3rd Avenue – I heard their corned beef and cabbage is great. 2018 – this is where I am going!



  • Kettle Black’s menu:

  • O’Sullivans 8902 3rd Avenue  – We never had it.


  • Salty Dog



  • Brooklyn Market sells corned beef and cabbage to pick up and bring home, but I haven’t tried it.


  • M&M’s deli (behind the Bean Post) sells corned beef and cabbage and I was told it’s good. 


  • Mike’s Deli – 4th Avenue between 95th and 96th



Not So Irish Alternatives:


  • 95th Street Dinner has a St. Patrick’s dinner for $14.95 plus tax – 718-238-5151 – they deliver 


  • Annabelle’s Italian Restaurant – 86th Street




  • Tanoreen Middle Eastern Restaurant which is well known for it’s amazing brussel sprouts, has corned beef with a lot of spices (which is not traditional at all, but I bet it’s delicious)  Tanoreen is at 7523 3rd Avenue.  See their menu








New for 2018 – Loco Lobo 86th Street and 3rd Avenue – they have a green drink – for the Irish who love Mexican food.







Where can I get Irish soda bread in Bay Ridge?  Again, this is something we make ourselves.




  • Brooklyn Market had fresh soda bread last year when we decided to make a second St. Pats meal for some family who were out of town. It was good soda bread.


  • I’ve had Leske’s soda bread – it’s not what I am used to, but it’s okay.


  • A friend said she bought hers at Panentico and it was good (but she also said Irish soda bread was just bread with raisins, so what does she know?)


  • Tasty Pastry has soda bread with seeds or without.  Also Tastry Pastry sells the diabetic, sugar free soda bread if you need it for the Irishman who has diabetes.
