Nolita is slowly becoming Little Australia, thanks to a few Aussie shops and two Down Under restaurants. Eight Mile Creek is the pricey joint, but across the street, Ruby’s keeps just about every item under ten bucks. Eating here is more about the social scene than the food; gaggles of Australians cram around the space’s five wooden tables or hang around outside. The menu sticks to salads and sandwiches—some of which are named after Aussie beaches (like the Blueys and Bondi chicken sandwiches)—and of course the essential native dessert: sweet, sticky date pudding.

Recommended to us by one of the local Australians working in Soho, we thought we found a gem. We had dinner there last night (their hamburgers and salads are delicious). We didn't have reservations and only had to wait for about 15 minutes. Which wasn't bad considering larger groups had to wait longer. The place is tiny but thats what makes is even better. The service is friendly. Its just one young woman and a man. The chef is a genius. We loved it so much that went back the next for lunch to try more of the goodies on the menu. It was less crowded, and we didn't have to wait at all. I also tried their pineapple mint smoothie which was delicious. I would highly recommend this place both for dinner and lunch.
