Counterfeit Irish pubs can be detected by their five-leaf clovers, poorly concealed sake taps, and suspicious number of Blarney Stones. Avoid bars that are merely Irish-ish with this Groupon.

JFK Grill Room at Kennedy's
Just blocks from Carnegie Hall and Lincoln Center, JFK Grill Room at Kennedy's offers not one but two menus within a space marked by Irish and presidential decor, red booths, white-clothed tables, and a crackling fireplace. The menu for the JFK Grill Room boasts all the affectations of a classic steak house, complete with a raw bar featuring shrimp, lobster, oysters, and clams. There, diners find aged Prime cuts of grain-fed beef, lamb cutlets with rosemary and garlic, grilled salmon with red-pepper couscous, and braised oxtail in red wine with shallots and the delights of the rare morel mushroom.
For a more casual vibe, there's the bar menu. Just as delicious as the JFK Grill Room's main menu: an eponymous burger arrives with cheese, veggies, and crispy fries. Appetizers such as grilled lolly pop lamb chops with mint yogurt and calamari with chipotle mayonnaise satiate hunger pangs while sipping on signature cocktails and other items from the full bar.
