My fellow intern at NYMag.com, Emily Watkins, has posted her picks for best St. Paddy’s Day drink specials, so I thought I’d share some not-so-traditional spins on the traditional corned beef and cabbage coming up in some restaurants around Manhattan. If you love lamb, BBQ, quesadillas, and pot stickers, you’ll love these interesting takes on corned beef and cabbage, all served only on St. Patrick’s Day.
