The sister spot to Avenue C’s Sunburnt Cow, the Sunburnt Calf is a rowdy pub with a few inspired dishes mixed in for good measure. The menu is a mix of mostly straightforward Australian standards as well as some larger, seasonally changing entrées. The chef concocts a slew of ingredients like macadamia nuts, green apples, carrots, and raddicchio atop top a juicy pork loin. A decent cheeseburger teeters with its stack of typical Kiwi toppings: sweet grilled pineapple, bacon, fried egg, beet, and fried onions. The boozy weekend brunch is a scene, thanks to bottomless bevies given unfortunate names like “Moo-mosas” and “Moo-Marys.” Fordham post-grads cram into tables on both floors of the atrium-topped space and guzzle Greyhounds or Foster’s. Choose the banana pancakes—thick cakey disks with fruit that tastes flambéed. There are some bizarre elements on the bar menu, most noticeably, milky alcoholic drinks served in baby bottles. But the crowds don’t seem bothered, as uniformly Aussie-accented waitstaff gamely keep the good times rolling.
