Give it 25 years or so to acquire the distressed patina it needs, and Lunasa will live up to the traditional Irish pub aesthetic to which it aspires. They’ve gotten the authentic touches right: low stools strewn willy-nilly around the space, wood benches, tables and bar-top, ten beers on “draught,” as they quaintly spell it and the game on the telly. The only blight is the fact that the furniture looks recently purchased from Gothic Cabinet Craft and merely given a good stain. Fish-and-chips, burgers and panini cover pub-grub staples and beyond, and an outdoor area enlivens warmer afternoons and evenings. Thankfully, Irish accents are often in house—both among the servers and the patrons—giving Lunasa a much-needed shot of the “realness” it can otherwise only attain with time.
