The Sunburnt Cow Restaurant Review:

Growing up on a farm in Australia, Heathe St. Clair had a pet cow named Bessie who died during a heat wave. Years later, St. Clair's parents informed him that Bessie didn't go to waste: she produced more than a few dinners for the family. Today, St. Clair is the owner of The Sunburnt Cow, an Australian tapas joint dedicated to his favorite bovine. The two-room eatery is part-bar, part-restaurant and always raucous. St. Clair works the dining room, often sitting down with diners to talk about his menu. The kitchen churns out feel-good Aussie fare like barbecued barra, a salty fish that St. Clair has shipped in from Down Under. Diners can start out with a round of oyster shooters or a classic shrimp cocktail, and then move on to one of the adventurous mains: wild boar spare ribs over crispy polenta with a spicy pineapple salsa, or good old-fashioned mutton stew with roasted potatoes and carrots. Burgers, salads and Cooper's beer-battered fish 'n' chips are also available. A series of potent moo beverages (most of which contain homemade fruit-infused vodka) are the drink of choice for the young East Villagers and Aussie ex-pats who frequent the Cow.
