Top NZ Big Apple Eateries

“I just got back from a trip to New Zealand and loved it. What are New York’s top spots for Kiwi cuisine?” asks a Village Voice reader in the publication’s ‘Ask the Critics’ section. Critic Lauren Shockey lists three: Nelson Blue, Kiwiana and D.U.B Pies. “Nelson Blue is the city’s foremost New Zealand restaurant … the lamb chops are good, as are the fried egg club and burger.” Meanwhile, chef Mark Simmons at Kiwiana serves up “modern flourishes like smoked and pickled Green Lip mussels, manuka- and Marmite-braised baby back ribs, and edamame with kelp salt.” “D.U.B (Down Under Bakery) Pies, offer[s] tasty savoury New Zealand-style meat pies. Steak and onion is the signature, but you can also sample options filled with chili and cheese, chicken and veggies, and one even with breakfast fillings: bacon, egg, and cheese.”
