Pound & Pence
A barrow boy pushes his cart past horse-drawn carriages, police on horseback, and a lady on a stroll, parasol in hand. This historical scene, appropriately tinted in sepia, hangs above diners at Pound & Pence, where it's one of two 10-foot murals that depict lively streets and pubs in 19th Century England. Pound & Pence's proprietors can't recreate the days of Dickens on all New York's streets, but they do conjure an old-timey vibe inside their establishment. A billiards table and leather wingback chairs stand among dark stained wood adorned with vintage English memorabilia.
The across-the-pond homage continues behind a bar stocked with English gins, an extensive scotch and cognac collection, and fixings for cocktails such as London Fog: a blend of gin, elderflower liquor, and lime juice. Pound & Pence's menu honors both English and American cuisine with selections ranging from bangers and housemade mash to spicy chicken fingers. During meals, up to 300 diners can chat with their neighbors or take in a game on one of the pub's more contemporary touches: a 10-foot HD projector screen.
