Top Chef alum Mark Simmons (Public) reps his native New Zealand at this Park Slope restaurant, decorated with his mother's teaspoon collection and a pine bar and tables made from wood sourced from the homeland. You'll also find the toque's mother country in the ingredients of his creative plates, like marmite-braised ribs and buttermilk fried chicken flavored with the New Zealand herb horopito.
