Eight Mile Creek unfurls across two floors, transporting New York diners down under with an exotic spread of Australian pub-style cuisine and imported spirits. Splashed in the flickering glow of candlelight, bronze-tiled walls establish the restaurant's rustic feel, as guests browse menus stocked with grilled-kangaroo skewers, burgers, and elegant entrees such as racks of Aussie lamb. On the first floor, live music further inflates casual airs with energized tunes, and themed holiday parties offer visitors an alternative to stuffy office banquets and get-togethers with socially awkward snowmen. During summer months, Aussie beers and New Zealand wines accompany warm breezes on an outdoor patio, where a wooden deck and an exposed-brick walls combine to create a tranquil dining experience.

Prohibition-era New York is paid tribute in this old fashioned ale house in the Lower East Side. The adulation is obvious but thankfully not overwhelming at One Mile House, which sports a tin-tile ceiling, photos of early 1900s New York, hanging globe lights, exposed brick walls and potbelly stove in the back. The beer and food menu, however, follows more contemporary craft trends, with 30 lines on tap – twenty permanent and ten seasonal – and more than fifty bottles to accompany dishes like duck jalapeño poppers, house-made bratwurst and crispy pork belly. Vaunted regulars might even dare to drink 100 beers and earn membership in the One Mile House Society.
