This modern Australian restaurant on Avenue A draws its name from the grubby underbelly of Melbourne, where locals say that the true culture of the city, the up-and-coming restaurants, the hidden clubs, and the edgiest of galleries can be found. Nestled between a 7-Eleven and a hookah lounge, Flinders mimics this sentiment in more ways than one. The décor is bare bones meets industrial chic meets “We-forgot-to-paint-that-wall-over-there” and yet is somehow still cozy, inviting, and exciting. If there’s one rule for eating at Flinders, it’s that every meal should start with sausage rolls. Delicious, rich, and buttery, they come wrapped in flaky pastry dough and served alongside the U.K. favorite HP sauce — a tamarind-based BBQ sauce. While the rolls reflect the country’s Anglo heritage, other dishes reference Southeast Asian influence, like chicken San Choi Bau and the coconut curry laksa, both delightful. The grilled Australian lamb, with cucumber, harissa, and a dollop of mint yogurt, is a must-try. The drink list gracefully hops from a selection of South Australian brews to cocktails, like England’s Pimm's Cup, that draw on its multicultural influences.
