Settle in at a checker–table-clothed two-top for a pint (or two) and dependable bar bites at this Upper East Side bar, which takes its name from the flag of Northern Ireland. The food menu traipses between across-the-pond classics like cottage pie and fish ’n’ chips and stateside favorites like cheeseburgers hooded with bacon-bourbon jam.

Dorrian’s Red Hand has been an Upper East Side staple since 1960. It’s a great place to watch sporting events as they have many big screen televisions. If you are into karaoke, head there Tuesdays at 11:00 pm and be ready to sing your heart out. The menu offers a wide selection of food ranging from chicken wings to cottage pie. The steak and frites is tender NY strip steak cooked to your liking served with crispy French fries. Vegetarians should try the fried eggplant sandwich which is topped with arugula, mozzarella and tomato. It was a little on the greasy side though, as eggplant soaks up oil easily.
