A self-proclaimed Victorian establishment with an often gauche and inelegant menu that tends to occupy a much more American focus than advertised.
A lush and feminine interior immediately greets visitors as they walk into Lillie's, a restaurant named after Ireland's favorite Victorian-era actress and socialite. Unfortunately, any authenticity is quickly undermined by the excess of garish, anachronistic details that take away from the loveliness of the wood bar and marble fireplaces.
The food, too, seems to have given up on conceptual consistency, with standouts like the Bangers & Mash and the Shepherd's Pie lost in very basic bar offerings like buffalo chicken wings and angus beef burgers loaded with bacon and blue cheese. Yet somehow, the long, albeit mediocre menu and the cozy, warm interior keep many coming back for more.
