Burke & Wills
Located in the heart of Manhattan’s Upper West Side, Burke & Wills is a modern Australian bistro featuring a raw bar and a rotisserie menu that changes seasonally. The bar is outfitted with vintage wood paneling and walls fashioned from wool bales. Smaller standing tables line the wall opposite the bar separated by partitions, creating intimate spaces for guests to socialize and enjoy their drinks. The back dining room is a light-filled space with an atrium-style glass roof and walls decorated with art depicting scenes of Australian wildlife and terrain.

Spring Natural Kitchen
Your second stop will be Spring Natural Kitchen, the sister restaurant to SoHo institution Spring Street Natural founded in 1973. The philosophy of both restaurants from the beginning were to serve good, wholesome, unprocessed cooking from scratch, everything homemade from all-natural ingredients. That philosophy has been our inspiration for the last 39 years and just so happens to be all the rage today.
