A proper Cornish pasty in NYC?

RebeccaGrace May 4, 2009 08:52 PM

Hi Hounds,

Does anyone know where I can find a proper Cornish pasty in NYC? I am a recent transplant from England and I am in need of a bit of home cooking. I am looking for the real deal, shortcrust pastry, chopped up swede, carrot, onion, and a bit of beef. Any help from the NYC hounds would be appreciated!

    I am pretty sure they have them at Meyers of Keswick, on Hudson St near Jane St. That store sells all the food you homesick Brits crave--Branston pickle, Hob Nobs, PG Tips, etc. Enjoy.

      I got hooked on these amazing things over 25 years ago on a trip through Michigan's Upper Peninsula where there is a pastie stand every 500 feet on the highway. I have looked everywhere in NYC for them since then and have turned up empty except for Meyers of Keswick. There was a restaurant in the Seaport, a Celtic bakery in Sunnyside, and the City's first modern brewpub on Watt St. that had them as well, but they are all gone and AFAIK only Meyers remains.
