When Down Under transplants Bill Mitchell and brothers Frank and Will Ford opened their good-time Aussie pub in 1999, they inadvertently kick-started a mini Antipodean invasion. Although Eight Mile Creek is now one of a half-dozen Australian joints on the Lower East Side, it still remains among the most authentic. The menu is a great intro to contemporary Australian cooking with native staples like roasted kangaroo loin, pan-seared lamb shank with sautéed spinach, and char-grilled hanger steak paired with chunky-cut fries with the skin left on. Those curious about more modern flavors can sample a classic Aussie meat pie or skewers of kangaroo meat in a tangy “pepperberry ketchup.” Later on in the evening, the young crowd congregates around the narrow dining room’s wooden bar, especially when Aussie-rules football plays on the overhead TV.

The Creek Bar
Down under the restaurant, Eight Mile Creek’s low-ceilinged pub serves several varieties of Coopers Ale, a good Australian wine list, and a bar menu of hometown favorites like meat pies, sausage rolls, and Vegemite sandwiches.
