Inside Potomac’s New Lahinch Tavern and Grill
– Bethesda Magazine
By Andrew Metcalf April 2016
It’s easy to forget you’re at a suburban shopping center after stepping inside the new Irish tavern Lahinch in Potomac.
The owners of the restaurant have transformed the space into a relaxed setting with reclaimed wood walls, a comfortable bar, an open kitchen and floor-to-ceiling windows that allows sunlight to stream inside.
The new restaurant, which replaces Benny’s Bar and Grill at the Cabin John Shopping Center and Mall, is owned by the same family that has operated the Irish Inn in Glen Echo since 2003. Lahinch officially opens to the public Wednesday for lunch and dinner service. The restaurant will also offer brunch on Saturdays and Sundays.
