A grocery store is like a carnival midway—it offers shelves and shelves of goodies that only become available after lobbing baseballs at stacks of bottles. Today's Groupon brings the bounty without the carnie cons: for $10, you get $20 worth of groceries and other products at Myers of Keswick in the West Village.
A traditional British grocery store, Myers of Keswick appeases Anglophiles with goods imported directly from the UK. Marmalades, teas, and other typical grocery items grace the shelves, including popular UK brands such as Heinz beans and John West fish, which can be enjoyed separately or combined to create a traditional British smoothie.
Relish in Keswick comfort by biting into made-to-order Cumberland sausage ($6.95), handmade in-house daily, or dig into a true shepherd's pie, featuring ground lamb, beans, mushrooms, onions, and carrots trapped beneath a bite-friendly barrier of truffle-infused mashed potatoes ($4.95–$15.95). Celebrate British pride outside the cupboard with flags ($3.95–$19.95) for displaying on flagpoles, magnets ($5.95) for displaying on fridges, and stickers ($4.95) for displaying on housecats. English teapots ($26.95–$44.95) from London Pottery inspire afternoon teas and can be dressed in colorful tea cosies ($19.95–$32.95) to prevent them from catching a cold.
A striped awning and an assortment of flags greet visitors as they enter the shop, whose black-and-white checkered floor complements the colorful goods that strain the shelves. Stop by to peruse the eclectic stock or simply to shake paws with Molly, the shop cat that became famous for getting trapped in the wall space.
