The Australian exemplifies the Aussie spirit- down to earth, friendly and always having a great time. We provide the warmth and charm of an old school Australian drinking establishment in the context of a modern American city. From our wide variety of imported beers to our homemade meat pies, our Australasian wine list to our freshest cocktails, we strive to represent everything that is great about Australian food and culture here in New York.
