Nestled on an unassuming corner of the Lower East Side in the former Little Giant space, this sweet Australian-American restaurant is home to creative cocktails, a variety of small plates, and an enticing atmosphere. With simple décor, an oversized marble bar and large, street-facing windows that remain open on nice nights, Dudley’s feels both romantic and bustling. A sleek vibe attracts cool Aussies and LES types to linger over cocktails and bites on a nightly basis. Though at times underseasoned, the food on the seasonal menu is agreeable, especially the perfectly-crisp fries with truffle aioli. Brunch features favorites like buttered toast topped with chunky avocado and the big breakie complete with eggs, bacon, mushrooms, baked beans, potatoes and toast.Reservations
