There are some exciting things happening in the near future at JA Heneghan's Tavern.  Within the next few months we should be serving grass-fed beef that is coming from a Heneghan farm.  As most of you may know, JA's is owned by three of the Heneghan boys, Kevin, Jack, and Jim.

A patriarch, an Irish brood and a homegrown chef make pub food sexy.

John Anthony Heneghan has the kind of backstory deemed legendary among large Irish families. The son of Irish immigrants who fled the Great Famine for America, John was born November 27, 1929—just after the stock market crash—and was raised with three sisters in a coal-heated bungalow in a Bronx shantytown on the East River. John earned his education on the streets and at Cardinal Hayes High School, and throughout his youth, he dreamed of becoming a fireman. Shortly after marrying ...
