The Australian Invasion

This week, Rob and Robin report on an unlikely but welcome addition to New York's restaurant scene, Australian pub Sheep Station, which is located in Brooklyn's version of the outback between Gowanus and Park Slope. Perhaps our intrepid food editors are warming to Australia they give Sheep Station a thumbs-up for its cool room and hearty dishes, and earlier this year, they penned "Australian for 'Food,'" a primer on the nation's cuisine.

Also in Openings this week: East Village wine shop Tinto Fino, West Village bistro Cafe Cluny, and Soho brasserie Bar Martignetti.
