J. Flynn's Irish Gastropub Now Open on Clematis St. in West Palm Beach

In downtown West Palm Beach, on a main street filled with dozens of restaurants and cuisine, a new gastropub-themed establishment has taken root. Known as J. Flynn's Irish gastropub, it's taken up space between the newly opened Oli's Fashion Cuisine and the soon-to-close Dr. Feelgoods club off Clematis Street.

Designed to evoke the dining experience of the famed pubs of Dublin, this new 4,500-square-foot restaurant endeavors to bring a taste of Ireland to South Florida. Co-owners and brother-sister team Elaine and John Flynn, both Ireland natives, enlisted the help of Cleve Mash and consulting chef Frank Eucalitto -- chef-owner of the Palm Beach Gardens restaurant Café Chardonnay -- to create what they term a "modern, gourmet-inspired take" on the Irish pub experience.
