This Scottish gastropub has been a charming addition to the West Village’s drinking and dining scene since 2009. Come early to snag a bar stool and sip the selection of single malts and blended whiskeys and cocktails like the Blood and Sand (Single malt Scotch, Cherry Heering, orange juice, lemon juice and bitters). And if you’re a fan of hearty fare, settle in for dishes such as haggis, or pan seared scallops.
