Despite the rough-hewn décor, the backyard deck with its surfer-dude vibe, and the fact that the food is served on paper plates, this Australian barbecue shack isn’t your typical outback cookhouse. Unexpected touches abound in dishes like pepperberry-rubbed grilled shrimp with fresh-corn-and-jalapeño salsa, and roasted leg of lamb with a winning mélange of haricots verts, oven-dried tomatoes, olives, and pecans.Brunch
