Real Fish & Chips
Who knows where to find real British-style fish & chips in/around NYC? I mean a big piece of battered cod and thick greasy chips with salt & vinegar served in a piece of newspaper. So bad it's good!
There is a place on Second Avenue and about 10th called Telephone Bar and Grill, or something like that. You cannot miss the place, as there are big red Brit telephone booths in front. I had authentic fish and chips there recently. Not great, a little loud, but it was pretty cheap as I recall.
Brooklyn. I do not know if it still exists - but perhaps a current resident can help out. I lived inBay Ridge in the mid 1980-s at 3rd Avenue and 72nd street. There was a real, old fashioned fish store at about 74-75th street. In addition to buying fresh fish, you could also buy fish and chips. It was wonderful. Sorry I cannot be more precise. Good luck.
