8. Irish: Molly’s Sheeban Pub

Often named New York’s most authentic Irish pub, Molly’s offers a bucolic ambience that makes it seem as if it were a rustic pub plopped right in the center of the Irish countryside. The word Sheeban actually represents an illegal drinking establishment in Ireland. Though perfectly legal, this word seems to fit Molly’s cool, underground sort of vibe exactly.

The restaurant offers a variety of traditional Irish dishes, like chicken potpie, pub sausage and mashed potatoes, and corned beef and cabbage. It is the perfect place to relax with a pint of Guinness and a plate of potato skins by the fireplace.
