Skip the 24-hour flight to Sydney and cab it to midtown’s Australian. There, the neighborhood worker bees who buzz into this split-level hive enjoy the characteristically friendly service (from a largely American wait staff), a wide selection of wines, and an extensive menu of Aussie comfort classics like meat pies and sausage rolls. The plates are huge, as are the twenty (count ‘em!) flat-screen TVs that line the walls, playing live cricket matches (via Internet feed—the Empire State Building got in the way of the satellite signal). Thankfully, other than a few thirties-era rugby posters and a backlit photo screen of the Sydney Harbour Bridge, the décor is not a Down Under theme park (no boxing kangaroos or wall-mounted boomerangs here). The perfect place to wash down an Aussie Lamb Roast with a bottle of Oz-brewed Coopers beer or a glass of Oz-aged Syrah.
