Wheelchair Accessible, Kid Friendly, Good for Groups
We’ve never liked a brown-bag lunch as much as the one at Cathal and Meshelle Armstrong’s Irish-style “chipper.” Whether you’re taking your meal home or to one of the glossy wooden tables, that bag serves as your plate. Inside might be a mess of thick-cut fries—among the many dips, we like the creamy pink Marie Rose and the caper-studded Kitty O’Shea sauces—plus a piece of beautifully fried, golden-battered cod. On the side, there’s good coleslaw, Brit imports including tangy Batchelors baked beans, and Guinness on draft.
Also good: Codwich, a hot fried-cod sandwich with lettuce and tartar sauce; fried grouper; sugar-dusted fried dough balls.
