Sure, imitation is the sincerest form of flattery. But when it comes to food, authentic recipes make for a more delicious meal. Native Brit Jonathan Dobbs is the head chef at British Arms Pub, where he's filled the menu with dishes such as mini Yorkshire puddings paired with roast beef and a 10-12-ounce Harp-battered haddock served with fresh cut chips, peas, and homemade tartare sauce. Locals can sip on Harp and Kilkenny cream ale while watching Premier League games or live musicians who gather around the fireplace nightly.
Upstairs is Ascent Lounge, a more contemporary space with bright blue walls, Cubist prints, and a backlit bar. It's reserved exclusively for private events or really fancy alone time, and has full-bar service as well as a distinct menu designed by an executive chef.
