This 100 year old tavern in Hells Kitchen on 11th Ave is a landmark in so many ways. A beutiful wood laden front dining area with windows on two sides, provides a nice view. The service here is friendly and personal. The menu offers traditional Irish bar fare and it is done well. Nice raisiny bread starts the meal service. I went with a burger with cheese and asked for the garlic mayo with my fries. This unadorned burger was perfectly cooked with it's cheddar cheese perfectly melted. The fries were good bar fries and the garlic mayo a delish compliment. The shepard's pie pictured was also super rich and tasty. We finished the meal with homemade ice-cream of hazelnut and vanilla- a silky finish.
