With more than a half-dozen locations across the Great Lakes region, Claddagh thrives by not straying from its Irish identity. There's a slick take on Irish beef stew, traditional shepherd's pie, and a Gaelic chicken. Trying to nurse a nasty hangover? Snag the Irish breakfast, which features bangers, black and white pudding, eggs, and rasher bacon.
