IRISH HEATHER REVIVES LONG TABLE SERIES

While you may be quietly mourning summer’s end, the Irish Heather is returning their beloved Long Table dinner series today (Sept 21) with a revamped menu.

Come together with friends old and new at the 40-foot long communal table to mix, mingle and enjoy classic comfort dishes paired with local craft beers from Russell Brewing. Originally created as an alternative dining experience for folks when the recession was biting hard, the Long Table Series continues to provide a unique experience at a great price. For just $18 per person (plus taxes and gratuities), we’re sure the long table tradition will continue to be a Vancouver favourite.

To view the full menu and for more details, visit the LTS blog. To book a reservation for the Long Table Series, email reso.irishheather@gmail.com.
