Time Out says
The team behind Aussie-accented spots Kingswood and Ruby's brings a tweaked version of the Bronte burger to the Lower East Side with this 40-seat spot. Get the signature patty—slicked with chili mayo, cloaked with melted Swiss and tucked into an oblong ciabatta roll—or opt for a few small plates (including smoked fish dip), a homemade pasta (like fettuccine with kale pesto) or another entreé (such as panfried fluke over creamed cauliflower). In the morning, get Counter Culture Coffee at the U-shaped marble bar; later at night, draft beers and seasonal cocktails, such as Dudley's Cup (Brooklyn gin, crushed watermelon, lime, cracked pepper), are on offer.

Came here for brunch after finding out the other brunch spot we were going to go to was closed.
Loved their ricotta hotcakes with bananas and a side of maple syrup. The presentation was not really the best but I'll take delicious over Insta-worthy shots any day. Those hotcakes were fluffy, creamy, and the right amount of sweetness. There was a minor service issue with the dishes coming out a bit slower than usual. The mushroom benedict was pretty good too. Those truffle fries with aioli were also a standout.
The decor is cool and hip without being pretentious which always a plus in my mind. Really good brunch spot in the Lower East Side and does get crowded so be prepared to wait.
Happy eating and remember: Don't deny, satisfy!
I am not cool enough to hang out at Dudley's You're probably not cool enough to hang out at Dudley's. But the beauty of it is... no one really cares.
Dudley's sits on one of my most frequented corners on the Lower East Side- a stone's throw from places like Top Hops or Casa Mezcal. Add to that proximity the fact that it's a perfect venue for basically any occasion, and you've got yourself one of the most practical, utilitarian bars around.
If you're looking for a no frills brunch with your couple friends in Bushwick, this is the place (assuming you can convince them to come to the city... which is assuming the L is running on a weekend). Order the shakshuka, some avo toast, and wash it down with one of their awesome cocktails.
On the other hand, it's a perfect spot for casual weeknight drinks. It usually gets crowded around happy hour, but if you can snag a seat at the bar you're set. You only have four more words to utter: "fries with truffled aoili".
Neighborhood Staple! This place is amazing for breakfast, brunch, lunch, or dinner. The vibe is cozy, they serve good drinks, the staff is nice, and the food is DELICIOUS!
Try their burgers and fries which are bomb, their brussel sprouts are the perfect side, and if you are feeling healthy check out their quinoa bowls. Yummy and fresh - you can't go wrong here.
I can't rave about this place enough. Great people, great food, great atmosphere, great laid-back welcoming Aussie service, great cocktails, Aussie beer.
