WATCH: Interview with Chris Sell, British Founder of New York’s Chip Shop. Plus: Top 5 NYC Eats

Chris Sell, owner of New York's Chip Shop restaurants

For our “Anglo Eats Out” series, we’ve been zipping around New York City, interviewing British chefs who have achieved culinary stardom in the the most competitive city on the planet. (Check out our first installment, which features Nobu’s Matt Hoyle.)

Recently, we chatted with Chris Sell, who is co-owner (alongside wife Vicki) of Brooklyn’s Park Slope Chip Shop. Founded in 2001, it has become renowned for its piping hot fish ‘n’ chips and, yes, fried Twinkies. (The venture quickly proved so successful with locals that he opened a second location, the Atlantic Chip Shop, in Brooklyn Heights.)

How did Chris make good on his vision to bring authentic British pub food to the States? Watch the interview.


Speaking of New York food, what are the top 5 best things to eat in the city, according to the chefs from No Kitchen Required? Madison Cowan, Michael Psilakis, and Kayne Raymond tell us what you can’t miss when you’re visiting the Big Apple:
