Restaurants, Australian Astoria

Time Out says

Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.

Queensland meets Queens at this Astoria spot, which proudly reps its Aussie roots throughout. Pinewood-planked walls are studded with indigenous artifacts like Australian spears and didgeridoos, and the menu matches these efforts to be faithful to Oz culture, with Australian-sourced lamb lollipops, beet-and-pineapple-topped burgers and a tiramisu made with Tim Tam cookies for a playful crunch. As expected, Foster's and Coopers are on tap, headlining a beverage program of Down Under–themed cocktails (one such tipple is named after a cricket stadium, natch), Australian and New Zealand wines, and craft beer.
