The menu features classics such as bangers and mash ($11.25), chicken curry ($11.50), and sausages wrapped in puff pastry ($11.25).
Cheese and chutney. Bangers and mash. Shepherd's Pie. At the BYOB Little Britain, UK faves slake stateside cravings with hearty helpings of potato, steak, and curry. Though the lunch and dinner menus are occasionally dotted with decidedly non-British dishes, such as Cajun fish spread and caprese salad, the majority of plates feature classically executed English flavors.

Sardines and tomato sauce are layered onto thick brioche before the open-faced sandwich is slid under a broiler, and curry cloaks chicken, samosas, vegetables, and fries—known here, of course, as chips.
