Though the ultra-spare setting—nothing more than a photo mural of Ayer’s Rock lines the brick walls—sets a simple tone at this Aussie–themed, seasonal eatery, the menu’s welcome attractions stand out in bold relief, as straight-up Down Under dishes put a tasty spin on meat pies (like the Chicken Wellington) and burgers (Aussie–style, of ground lamb and beef, with lettuce, tomato, and pickled beets). Other items tap the world’s smallest continent’s far-flung ingredients. Wattleseed, a nutty, Aboriginal spice, enhances the yogurt dressing on the Tucker salad; Smoked Stokes Point cheddar adds an earthy, creamy garnish to a flaky tart; and the delicate white flesh of barramundi, the bounty of the Great Barrier Reef, slides right off the bone. If typical Oz endings such as Pavlova, a mountain of meringue and fruit, overwhelm all but the most voracious epicures, the Australian cheese plate easily finishes a meal patriotically. Four varieties of Coopers Ale keep tipplers’ whistles wet at the buzzing bar. The dining room, however, provides a quieter outback for dates.

Extra

Every Tuesday is lobster night, with $13 for a whole crustacean served in Maine, Australian, or South Pacific styles.
