New Zealand is one of the most beautiful and unique places on Earth. Its two small islands showcase a startling diversity of geography, plants, and animals, and the mix of human cultures creates a country like no other! Add a little kiwi to your day with a meal at Nelson Blue! Catch all the fun at 233-235 Front Street @ Peck Slip, South Street Seaport.
A New Zealander in New York
This cozy and creative restaurant came from the mind and background of owner Pauli Morgan. He named this gastropub in honor of his hometown in New Zealand, and his love of his native country shows through in the restaurant’s Maori-inspired decor. It’s a feast for the eyes as well as the stomach, with columns carved to resemble traditional Maori war canoes and a curved wooden bar.
The menu features both small plates, which are perfect for a snack or for diners who’d like to try many foods; and large plates which dish up much heftier servings. Try a plate of the corn and zucchini fritters for a mouth-watering starter, or for the carnivores, beef sliders with caramelized onion. Sandwich lovers won’t want to miss the fried egg club sandwich, piled high with bacon, lettuce, egg, and curried mayonnaise! The D.U.B. pies bring a New Zealand tradition to the South Seaport.
