St. Patrick’s Day is a holiday that everyone in Staten Island loves to celebrate, Irish or not. While the event did start off as a religious holiday, it has now become a way to celebrate Irish culture through good food, lively music and Irish cheer. Whether you're hosting a small gathering with friends or a larger celebration, having the perfect menu is key to a successful St. Patrick's Day party.

From traditional Irish fare to creative green-themed dishes, the ideas below will help you create a tasty menu for you and your guests! Just be sure to wear green - or risk getting pinched!


Irish Soda Bread

Begin your St. Patrick's Day feast with classic Irish soda bread. This quick and easy bread is made with simple ingredients like flour, buttermilk, baking soda and salt. Serve it warm with a generous spread of creamy Irish butter for an authentic Irish touch.

Shamrock Deviled Eggs

Put a festive spin on a party favorite with shamrock-shaped deviled eggs. Hard-boiled eggs are filled with a creamy mixture of egg yolks, mayonnaise, mustard and a dash of green food coloring. Garnish with parsley or chives to complete the shamrock effect.

Potato Pancakes

Another loved appetizer for St. Patty’s day is potato pancakes. These savory pancakes are crispy on the outside and perfectly tender on the inside. Most of the ingredients are probably already in your home - potatoes, flour, eggs, milk and seasonings. On the side, serve applesauce, sour cream or Greek yogurt.

Main Course

Corned Beef and Cabbage

No St. Patrick's Day celebration would be complete without the classic combination of corned beef and cabbage. Slow-cooked corned beef is tender and flavorful, paired with boiled cabbage, carrots and potatoes. Serve it with a side of whole grain mustard for a traditional Irish feast.

Guinness Beef Stew

Warm up your guests with a hearty Guinness beef stew - it goes far! This rich and savory stew is made with tender chunks of beef, carrots, onions and potatoes, simmered in a flavorful broth made with Guinness stout beer. Serve it with crusty bread for dipping.

Irish Chicken

If you don’t like beef, Irish chicken is a great alternative. Irish chicken refers to chicken dishes prepared with ingredients commonly associated with Irish cuisine, such as potatoes, cabbage, carrots and various herbs and spices. Aside from classic baked Irish chicken, you can also try a chicken and leek pie or an Irish chicken casserole.


Irish Cream Chocolate Cheesecake

Indulge your sweet tooth with an Irish cream chocolate cheesecake. Creamy cheesecake is infused with Irish cream liqueur and swirled with rich chocolate, then baked to perfection. Top it with whipped cream and chocolate shavings for an irresistible dessert. Just be sure to leave yourself plenty of time, as cheesecakes need several hours to chill.

Green Velvet Cupcakes

Add a pop of color to your dessert spread with green velvet cupcakes. These moist and fluffy cupcakes are made with a vibrant green velvet cake batter and topped with cream cheese frosting. Decorate with festive sprinkles or edible gold dust for a whimsical touch.


Irish Coffee

Keep your guests warm and toasty with Irish coffee. This classic cocktail combines hot coffee with Irish whiskey, brown sugar and a dollop of whipped cream. Serve it in festive mugs and garnish with a sprinkle of cocoa powder for a cozy and indulgent treat.

Shamrock Shake

You never know what the weather will be like on St. Patrick's Day - you may even need to cool off with a refreshing shamrock shake! This creamy mint-flavored milkshake blends together vanilla ice cream, milk, mint extract and a few drops of green food coloring until smooth and creamy. Top with whipped cream and a cherry!
