Pints: Black Horse Pub
English transplant Brian McNally channels Britain by way of Brooklyn at his Windsor Terrace saloon, dressing up the standard wood-and-exposed-brick interior with mixed-media paintings depicting English pop icons like the Clash, Massive Attack and Del Boy (of the classic BBC comedy Only Fools and Horses). The pub captures the essence of a local boozer across the pond—a convivial place to read the paper or match wits over a few jars of ale. And fittingly, the banter tends to center on English Premier League soccer, especially on weekends when committed fans pour in early to watch live matches. Order a cup of tea and full English breakfast ($12), featuring proper fried bread and Myers of Keswick bangers; then, move on to 20-ounce imperial pints of creamy Boddingtons ($6) or pitchers of local brews like Ommegang BPA ($22). Catch a London rivalry on Saturday 30, when Chelsea takes on Tottenham at 12:30pm, or set the alarm on Sunday 1 for a true clash of the titans—Manchester United versus Arsenal at 9:05am. 568 Fifth Ave at 16th St, Windsor Terrace, Brooklyn (718-788-1975)
