Straddling the line between Yonkers and the Bronx’s Irish enclave of Woodlawn, Rory Dolan’s is large enough to host a rugby scrimmage yet simultaneously project a neighborly, genial vibe. The giant wood bar with leather-topped stools and TVs galore is administered by an indefatigable crew of young Irish bartenders. You will find 45-plus draft beers (and another 20 on a rotating basis) and nearly as many in cans and bottles. It also has a fine stash of Irish whiskies. In the back is a handsome white-tablecloth dining area with a hearth.
Naturally, traditional Irish fare is the way to go: shepherd’s pie, chicken pot pie, and such. The kitchen serves a limited menu until 3 a.m.
