NileGuide Expert tip:
Watch out for the after-work crowds, especially when the weather gets nice; there is outdoor seating during the summer months.
Billed as "New York's first New Zealand restaurant and bar," Nelson Blue is co-owner Pauli Morgan (a former bartender at the popular Soho pub Puck Fair
)'s homage to Nelson, New Zealand. Decked out in Maori-inspired decor, this bustling gastropub offers eight rotating beers on tap, a selection of wines from the Southern Hemisphere, and a menu that boasts New Zealand-style crab cakes with panko crust and citrus salsa, lollipop lamb chops and green-lipped mussels.
