The River Room, Harlem+
  679 Riverside Drive - Riverbank State Park - New York, NY              
“The view is magic… The long northern wall of the restaurant is floor-to-ceiling glass facing the Hudson River and the George Washington Bridge… a broad span of glittering lights… a sensational view.
Much of the food… explores Southern cuisine — defined broadly — and what might be called elevated soul food… I tried a fillet of striped bass encrusted with corn meal and okra. The contrast between the gritty, crunchy exterior and the moist interior made for a very fine dish.
Service… was definitely earnest and often charismatic. Both of the waitresses who interacted with our table had senses of humor and senses of just how much conversation we wanted and didn't and when.”

Australian, The, Midtown
  20 West 38 Street - New York, NY              
Traditionally Australian food has been influenced by two main groups – the British, who settled the country in the late eighteenth century, and the Aboriginals who occupied the land for more than 40,000 years before then.
Australian cuisine was heavily influenced by the first English settlers, who favored such staples as roasted cuts of meat, grilled steak and chops with vegetables. Despite an array of different influences in the last 200 years, much of this traditional British food has remained a mainstay of Australian cuisine, particularly in Australian pub fare such as meat pies and fish and chips.
