Samuel Beckett’s To Open in November

Over the weekend, Shirlington Village Blog published a letter from Mark Kirwan, owner of the under-construction Samuel Beckett’s Irish Gastro Pub at 2800 South Randolph Street.

Kirwan says he’s now hoping to open in early November. The opening was expected to be “mid-October” when we checked in with Kirwan last month.

“It has been a tough ordeal dealing with the County,” Kirwan wrote to Shirlington Village Blog.

When we asked what sort of problems he has encountered, Kirwan replied simply: “It’s mainly signage issues and different people’s interpretation of code.”

According to county records, Samuel Beckett’s has been granted a use permit for a restaurant with 228 indoor seats.
