best shepherd's pie New York 2003 - RAMBLING HOUSE
Trust an Irish bar to excel in this category. The aforementioned pie features a stratum of oily mince shot through with bits of vegetable crowned by mashed potatoes whipped to a fare-thee-well. Expect the Guinness that is its proper accompaniment to be maintained at just the right temperature. Note: At RAMBLING HOUSE, the first beer is free at weekend brunch.
