This Hell’s Kitchen bar is one of the oldest in New York, (it opened in 1868!). It was eventually renovated in the early 2000s in the hands of new owners, but it still retains its historic charm, including tin ceilings and an original mahogany bar carved from a single tree. The menu lacks pretty much all pretense with items like Shepherd’s pie, Scotch eggs, potato and leek soup, and fish and chips.
