The Rundown: St. Patrick's day has a new tradition: dinner at Mission Eatery. It started two years ago when Mission Eatery first opened its doors. Now, we return annually for its hefty plate of all-natural brisket, handmade potatoes, and cabbage, sourced, like everything at Local Eatery, from area farms, ranches, cheesemakers, winemakers, brewers, and their families.
.The 24th Street restaurant has been so successful, it has plans to open a cafe and market this spring and summer.
Head to Mission Eatery's birthday party and ask about plans for its cafe, Local Corner, when you're there. You'll have to depend on the luck o' the Irish for a seat because reservations are not available. But don't stress, unlike any other sit-down night at Mission Eatery, employees are taking orders at the register and bringing out your plate. Order a dish and squat on the sidewalk if you'd like. Just watch out for leprechauns scheming to steal your plate of homemade Irish goodness.
