New Zealander Saturday afternoon

Joan Kureczka | Mar 6, 200511:10 AM

Inspired by the previous reports, we decided to try the New Zealander ourselves for a late Saturday lunch. If you are looking for this place, note that the old historic Croll's sign remains, creating a brief instant of confusion.

Despite reports that the pies were a bit dry, we ordered a steak and cheese pie and one of the lamb burgers. This pie, at least, was anything but dry and was relatively tasty although a bit one dimensional (a few veggies along with the meat would be nice).

The lamb burger was delicious and moist (ordered medium). It came with two sides -- a good small salad of mixed greens in a somewhat creamy dressing and a choice of potato salad or "Roasted reds, Coromandel-style". I went for the latter and was very happy -- delicious herb-roasted potatos. yum.

Good selection of NZ and a few other wines. Decent beer selection, including bottled versions of Coopers and 3 NZ beers, and a very good Czech pilsner called Lev Lion that we had never seen before.
