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, featuring proper fried bread and Myers of Keswick bangers; then, move on to 20-ounce imperial pints of creamy Boddingtons or pitchers of local brews like Ommegang BPA.
