Molly's is the kind of place you've probably walked by without notice a hundred times—just another "Irish" pub in the city. But step inside and you'll be in for treat. You could follow Adam's advice and order the burger, but I usually skip it and order the chicken pot pie and a pint of Harp instead. Golden puff pastry on top, hot chicken and veg underneath. Served piping hot, I recommending poking a few holes through the pastry to let it cool down a bit before taking a bite. This is my ideal comfort food experience—friendly Irish staff, dimly lit, worn wooden booths, an old jukebox (U2 anyone?), saw dust on the floor, and when the weather merits it, a fire roaring in the fireplace.
