We’re sure that Prince Harry has a jam-packed schedule while in NYC early next week, but if he gets homesick during his stay, we have some options for him to get his Brit fix.
383 Fifth Ave., Brooklyn, 718-832-7701
This Park Slope gem boasts all the classic British comfort foods, such as shepherd’s pie, steak and kidney pie, Haggis Supper and, of course, fish and chips. ChipShop has received great praise for their deep-fried Twinkies and say they won’t hesitate to “fry anything that doesn’t hurt the chefs, wreck the fryer or irritate the health department.”
381 Park Ave. S., 212-335-0093
339 Greenwich St., 212-933-0421
Brits take their afternoon tea seriously: Tea in a pot, scones with jam and finger sandwiches are all part of the midday treat. Good news for Harry: Sarabeth’s Tribeca and Park Avenue South locations are borrowing the popular social British tradition. Tea is served Monday through Friday from 3:30 to 5 p.m. and on the weekends from 4 to 5 p.m.
The menu offers a variety of Harney & Sons Fine Teas such as Darjeeling, Earl Grey, Supreme, Sencha Green and Organic Passion Plum. Both venues also feature tasty lunch options.
Brick Lane Curry House
306-308 E. Sixth St., 212-979-2900
Brick Lane is a street in East London famous for Bengali-style Indian food. Here, Harry shouldn’t expect too much tandoori and khurma on the menu. Instead, he’ll be treated to kebabs and robust curries.
127 Fourth Ave., 212-260-1099
If Harry needs to feel like a king for a day (thanks for stealing the thunder, Will) all he has to do is head to Union Square. The upscale sports bar has more than 40 TVs, and with the Knicks in the playoffs, Harry can root for the home team.
Little Britain Boulevard
One of Manhattan’s lesser-known treasures is a cozy corner in West Village nicknamed “Little Britain Boulevard.” There Harry’ll find traditional British fare such as finger sandwiches and shepherd’s pie at Tea & Sympathy. For traditional fish and chips, we recommend A Salt & Battery.
