It's been under new ownership for about a year now, and last night we saw their new menu for the first time. The menu's been out since July, so I guess it must've been that long since we'd been to O'Brien's. I'm not sure why we don't think of this special, unassuming little place more often, but I sure hope we will now! The new menu looks fabulous, even though some will doubtless miss a few of the old O'Brien's standbys. There were also two very tempting entree specials offered last night.
Don't have time right now to go into what we ordered, but suffice it to say everything was simply superb -- up to Jim's former standards and then some. The new owner, Dave Greenfield, was there and came over to our table to check on our satisfaction. We raved about the food and the new menu and he was humbly grateful. He was also obviously very modest as he never mentioned a word about his extensive prior restaurant experience, which I just learned of on their website's "About" page (they need a good editor but try to ignore the errors):
And here's the new menu:
Reservations are recommended, though not required. Phone 477-9120.
GO. You won't be disappointed. Worth every penny!
I hope Pensacola will continue to support this outstanding and very special restaurant. We certainly plan to go a lot more often ourselves.
