The Sunburnt Cow is a refreshingly different Alphabet City watering hole with a flair for all things Aussie. Attracting an eclectic mix of LES revelers, the Cow lassos a steady following with its rainbow of unique, well priced cocktails like the tangy Wildberry Moo-jito. Friendly ‘tenders from Down Under muddle fresh fruit before your eyes and are liberal with the liquor – giving you an even better bang for your buck. From the same people who brought you Bondi Road on Rivington, the Sunburnt Cow is a fun spot that just happens to serve some very good eats. With a variety of tapas-style Australian offerings, the unexpected bar menu takes on a bistro flair. Kiwi Jalapeno Salsa adds a delicious twist to the tender, Calamari Oz Style, while the Lamb Burger is complemented by a yummy eggplant and sweet onion chutney. Barbie purists will enjoy the tender hanger Steak Sandwich. The Cow also offers an excellent value by way of The Counter Meal. This deal includes an appetizer, choice of entrée, and one of their stellar desserts.
The Cow’s extremely popular weekend prix fixe brunch is another delicious hit that happily includes unlimited Moo-mosa and Moo-Mary’s ($15). But when the sun goes down The Cow really starts rockin’, and there’s something for everyone. A lively nightspot whenever you show, evening draws include live jazz on Tuesdays and Guest DJs on Fridays, just to name a few. Rest assured, because every evening brings with it a unique drink special. Great energy and a friendly staff make The Cow the type of venue that you’ll never tire of, no matter how often you visit. Stop in, and you may just be partying even after the cows come home.
