Telephone Bar and Grille is Britishness in the East Village
Between 9th and 10th Streets on Second Avenue is the Telephone Bar and Grille. It is a British style pub/restaurant. It’s easy to spot with the iconic red British phone booths outside. There is seating available outside in nice weather, but it was a bit too chilly for us, so we enjoyed a wooden table and chairs inside.
They do serve some “authentic” British food: fish and chips, bangers and mash, and shepherd’s pie. But they also have a variety of more American cuisine from quesadillas and fries to spinach and cheese ravioli and burgers. There are a decent range of vegetarian options, which was good for my friend! The portions are definitely American-sized!
The restaurant sells t-shirts and caps with the name and logo on them. Not a bad souvenir, but it’s cheaper to just take a quick snapshot outside in front of the red phone booths. They are open for lunch and dinner.
The bar has a wide variety of beers and ales, including a selection from England and Ireland: Boddington’s, Guinness, Newcastle brown ale, and Bass Ale.
