I've always wanted to experience that Empire State of Mind. To be in the streets of New York that can make one feel brand new with lights that will inspire you. Until then, I have Bowery Lane on O'Connell Street in Sydney to go to for an NYC style dining experience.
The new Bowery Lane is a cafe/bar restaurant situated in the heart of the Sydney CBD. It's a culinary sanctuary in the midst of a corporate jungle. The interior has a modern chic meets Wall Street dining look. The restaurant is named after a thoroughfare in Manhattan Island. Their dishes are inspired and reflective of the various ethnic groups that resides in New York like Italians, South Americans, Jewish, Koreans, Jamaicans, Africans etc. American classics with modern twists are also available.
They open from breakfast so you can get dishes like their steamed Moroccan eggs ($16). It had tomato chutney, spinach, and dukkah with sides of toasted sourdough bread. The yolk was lusciously runny, which was perfect for toasted bread dunking!
|Reese's peanut buttercup milkshake|
|Cookies and cream milkshake|
|Ice cream sandwich|
For lunch and dinner, they also have dishes for sharing like pork collar & scratching's with apple & fennel salad ($48) and 1KG of braised wagyu braised short rib with horseradish cream & roasted garlic ($58). Bowery Lane is now one of my favourite food joints in the CBD. The service is tops and the food rocks!
