Celebrating St. Patrick's Day
Aura Restaurant, helmed by Chef Rachel Klein, in the Seaport District.
I gave up on corned beef and cabbage at the local pub and all forms of bagpipe music on St. Patrick's Day years ago but I do like to celebrate the occasion. So, I think I have found my event for this year. Aura Restaurant is hosting its 5th Annual Gaelic Gourmet Celebration to usher in St. Patrick’s Day with a spirited evening of food and fun that benefits the Fisher House. We reviewed the restaurant last year and were very impressed. Plus, it's located in the very up-and-coming Seaport District, the last bright spot for new restaurant ventures in Boston.

In honor of St. Patrick’s Day and this city’s historic role as a hub of Irish culture and cuisine, critically-acclaimed chefs from Boston and Galway, Ireland are joining forces at Aura to create a four-course dinner to benefit the Fisher House - a 20-unit facility being constructed that will provide free accommodations for the families of veterans being treated at the West Roxbury VA hospital.
If that's not enough, Emerald Isle-based musical sensation Celtic Thunder will be on-hand performing a special selection of Irish favorites.
Featured Chefs will be: Rachel Klein, Chef at Aura Restaurant, Barbara Lynch, Chef & Owner, No 9. Park, B&G Oysters, The Butcher Shop, Drink and Sportello and Gerard Reidy, Chef at Delphi Mountain Resort in Galway, Ireland
