Founded in 1887, Browne’s is the oldest Irish business in the world — outside of Ireland. The marketplace is known for its Reuben sandwiches, shelves lined with grocery items missed by new Irish immigrants, and imported artisan handcrafts.
Even as the pandemic worsens again, many restaurants say they can't afford to sit out the city's annual Restaurant Week. Some are offering delivery and carryout options, while asking diners to practice patience and kindness.
