The Aussie owners of Ruby’s have opened a raucous little eatery in the former Jefferson spot, with Down Under–themed eats from English chefs. The drinks are fantastic—the namesake mojito-like cocktail of Pimm’s and Hendrick’s gin with guava and apple juices and muddled fresh mint is alone worth a stop-in—and the eats, though hit-and-miss, include a killer “Bronte burger.” Excellently messy, the juicy patty is enlivened by chili sauce and melted Gruyère. Paired with a pint of Bass, it’s a fine way to end an evening out in the Village.
