An update from reader Noeleen on the Sunburnt Cow, an Australian restaurant recently opened in the East Village (137 Avenue C):
. . . Have had some comment by Australians visiting this establishment and the resulting comments are very glowing. In particular, the Aussie Style hamburgers and of the course, the classic Pavlova (meringue base with a cream filling and topped with fruit or chocolate - classic Aussie dessert - one taste and you will be an instant convert;the above description does not do it justice.)
You will possibly find many Australians dining here in future, among Europeans and Brits.
