If you’re looking to hit up a new, trendy place in Murray Hill…well, don’t come here. Molly’s touts itself as being “NYC’s most authentic Irish bar,” and no one’s debating it. With the fireplace crackling all winter long and sawdust all over the floor, this 50-year old pub is about as authentic as it gets this side of the Atlantic. They serve all the usual suspects when it comes to beer, and the food is that of a traditional Irish pub (with some American favorites added in for good measure). The Shepherd’s Pie is the only way to go if you’re really looking for tradition here, but you can’t go wrong with the Frontier buffalo burger if you’re in the mood for something you can eat with your hands.
