Like flies to the zapper, a two-floor-tall neon sign draws in weary tourists, suits, and ambivalent-looking post-grads alike. The predictable Irish pub's first floor flirts with old New York via weathered newspaper clippings, exposed wine cases, and, um, a giant painting of nymphs frolicking around a fountain. (We don't think it's the Bethesda in Central Park.) But kitschy Guinness novelty ads, multiple plasmas, and one jumbo projection screen in back kill that tack fairly quickly. Bangers and mash and shepherd's pie are dished out upstairs. Just keep your brogue imitations to a minimum.
