Village Voice's Description

Nelson Blue is the city's only New Zealand bar and
restaurant, with a Maori inspired d├ęcor and a location on the best street in the Seaport. Peck Slip is a broad cobbled thoroughfare that graceless development somehow forgot, and this Kiwi establishment sends its tables out onto the pavement for some bucolic summer dining. Though the restaurant is particularly proud of its imported lamb chops and mussels, we preferred the plebeian fare: A classic "ploughman's lunch" featuring, in addition to good bread, cheese, and sausage, a pickled beet salad, sliced green apple, plus some random salad stuff (it's called "Cockie's tucker" on the menu, meaning the repast of someone named Cockie). The egg club sandwich--substituting a pair of fried eggs for turkey--is also fab.

Tips from foursquare

  • Downtown A. on 08/29/10

    NY's first outpost of all things Kiwi. Striking Maori designs & a suspended war canoe overhead. Great grilled oysters. You can get our free Downtown dining guide: http://www.downtownny.com/mapsguides/

  • Josephine D. on 02/07/10

    Go to Nelson Blue & try the New Zealand lollipop lamb chops. Mouth-wateringly delish.

  • Dale C. on 04/29/11

    The new Lamb meatballs are a must have. Check them out.

  • Michelle G. on 04/22/10

    Great place :) Outdoor seating, great food, drinks and STAFF :))))

  • Kellie M. on 04/11/10

    Mac & Cheese is great!
