On the corner of Dixon and Willis street lies something real cool: a delicious slice of the Big Apple. Combining cosy Kiwi cuisine with endless cheat-day eats from New York, Staten Eatery is where Wellington and America's East Coast collide.
OK, so some real talk. There might not be a Statue of Liberty or a Times Square but there's an epic milkshake bar, an eternally friendly dining room and plenty of space for yooz guys to hang out. And before you chow down on some cheat-days yums, indulge your inner thirstbucket with a craft beer to get the party started.
This is the food of champions. Get out the loose pants (that's NY for 'trousers') and prepare for absolute feasts like hot pastrami sandwiches, towering beef burgers, a mountain of buttermilk fried chicken (half the damn chicken!) and a full (yes full) rack of pork spareribs. If your eyes are bigger than your stomach, you've hit the motherload.
But hold onto your hats because over in 'Murica, dessert is like a whole meal in itself. To put this into context, they have a whole bar dedicated to milkshakes and ice cream! If you're looking for a more grown-up bar, head over to the taps where you'll find Kiwi-made craft beer and bottles from the US of A. And with that, we'll tip our hat to you, son.
We'll be back soon
