5 Little Britains On American Soil (PHOTOS)

Posted: 06/06/2012 7:00 am

Unless you've been living under a rock, you've probably heard that England is kind of a big deal right now. The queen is currently celebrating her Diamond Jubilee -- 60 years on the throne -- and, in July, thousands of the world's best athletes will descend upon London to fight for glory in the Olympics.

It's enough to drive even the most casual Anglophiles among us in a frenzy. Those of us not lucky enough to be visiting England this summer may wonder: What are the best ways to celebrate the awesomeness of our forefathers across the pond? To help, we've come up with five oh-so-English traditions that can be enjoyed with a certain American recklessness.

Oyster’s pick for where to do it: The Breslin at the Ace Hotel, New York City

The English may not be renowned for their cuisine, but when it’s done well, it’s extremely delicious. British chef April Bloomfield has proved as much, and The Breslin is one of the best places in the States to sample English gastropub fare. On the menu? Pig’s feet with spring vegetables and creme fraiche, seafood sausage with beurre blanc and chives, and a chargrilled lamb burger with cumin mayo and thrice cooked chips (chips means French fries, for those not well-versed in English eating.)
