NYC Bars with Legitimately Good Food

Opened in 2013, The Dead Rabbit is not short on acclaim, having scored the number-one spot on The World’s 50 Best Bars list in the past. The Financial District cocktail den draws devotees who wait long after work hours in the narrow space for its beautifully executed Irish coffee and other ambitious drinks. The kitchen takes a similar approach to classic Irish food, improving on shepherd’s pie with bits of curried lamb that get a nice char before being blanketed in mashed potatoes.
