NYC is full of Irish pubs. You don't need to walk further than a block or two in any direction to find one. Emmett O'Lunney's happened to be next door to my hotel so I wandered in for a late lunch -- and I'm so glad I did! The service was fast, friendly and efficient, and the Cobb Salad was so good I almost licked the plate when I was done. Fresh soda bread is served at the table -- totally delicious. The waitress recommended Magner's -- an Irish hard cider that was a wonderful recommendation. I had never had it before and now it's one of my favorite beverages. I did not feel rushed and thoroughly enjoyed being in the pub. Note: this was the weekend of the NFL draft so there were people everywhere but I felt welcome to sit by myself and just soak in the atmosphere.
