Fish and chips in NYC

We're trying to remember the name/location of a fish and chips place in downtown NYC that has an English pub mixed with hipster feel to it and, of course, amazing fish and chips. Does this ring a bell for anyone?

Maybe Telephone? It's such a great place. First I thought of A Salt and Battery, for the F & C, but there's no pub atmosphere. If it's not Telephone, how far downtown? There's Shakespeare's in GV.

A Salt and Battery. 2nd ave between 4th and 5th. Also one in the west village. Too lazy to look it up. Or you could be thinking about Telephone on 2nd as well -- it has more of a pub feel.

A Salt and Battery?

Did they also have amazing fried Cadbury eggs?? If so, then it was definitely A Salt and Battery.

Could it be Croxley Ales on Avenue B? Seems to fit the description. I've only been there once, and didn't have the fish and chips, just an average sandwich, but definitely a hipster feel.

could also be tea & sympathy which is like right next to salt & battery. and contrary to its polite name has such delicacies as spaghetti toast.

(also I think it's the same ownership)

OK, what the heck is "spaghetti toast"? I googled, but the only thing I could find that was an actual phrase instead of two separate items was this, which ends with the following item, #161:
Spaghetti Toast: simply top your toast with spaghetti from a can (Dan P.)

I'm really hoping that's not what you mean.

There used to be a place called "English Harbour Fish and Chips" on 14th street. But I think it's a KFC now.

Jeez. I haven't lived there for over 15 years, but back then, it was the white horse tavern.

Just googled it, and it's still there!

It's where I always used to go for fish and chips. Back then it was even authentically served in newspapers.

OK, now I'm sorry I asked.

A classic that goes one better than Spaghetti on Toast, the cheese beano

One and One? First Ave, First St. Green sign I think. That standard Irish typeface. Outdoor seating.
