Scottish restaurants in Manhattan

Don MacLeod Nov 5, 2001 10:14 PM

I'm in need of any places that serve any or all of the following: cock-a-leekie soup, Scotch eggs and, of course, haggis, even if it is only seasonally.

Pubs will be OK, but I don't know of any Scottish-only restaurants. I know many of the hybrid British joints with pub grub, but can any one point me to a real Scottish restaurant (if one exists)?

    You might want to try St. Andrews, which is at 120 West 44th. I've only been to the bar, which has a fantastic selection of beers, but they do have a full restaurant. At the bar, I've tried their curry fries...St Andrews is the only place in the city where I've been able to find this magical dish.
    If you try the restaurant, please report back and let us know how it was.

      We'll be going tonight or tomorrow and certainly will file a complete report. Thanks for the heads up.

        I think you'll enjoy it. They have both haggis and scotch eggs available. In addition, they have Scottish beer, scotch and, most amazingly, actual Scottish bartenders and waitstaff.

        You're probably more of an expert than I, so I eagerly await your report!

          I am not a huge scottish food fan, but I have enjoyed St. Andrew's on several occasions. Even if you don't want the scary scots fare, i have had some decent salads there......
