At the turn of the twentieth century many Irish men and women made East Harlem home, and now ABC7 reports that a new gastropub specializing in craft cocktails, hearty Irish comfort food, and American bar bites has debuted in East Harlem. Called The London Irish Pub, the fresh arrival is located at 355 E. 116th Street, in the former space of Harley’s, and serves brunch on the weekends.
On the menu, look for small plates like the Irish Spring Rolls — egg roll wrappers stuffed with corned beef, cabbage, potatoes, and cheddar cheese. For a stick-to-the-ribs dinner, try the homemade shepherds’ pie or the Guinness beef stew, made with grass-fed beef and chunks of carrots, celery, onions, and potatoes.
At the bar, in addition to a choice of Guinness and other beers, customers will find craft cocktails include the El Barrio (a grapefruit margarita garnished with a basil leaf).
And on weekends, brunch aficionados will get two complimentary cocktails with an entree like the Traditional Irish Breakfast: Irish bacon, sausage, black and white pudding, baked beans, fried eggs, French fries, and white toast. (You can check out the food menu here and the drinks menu here.)
