79th Street gets its taste of Avenue C's Sunburnt Cow

We know several people who continued to be annoyed by the fraternity-and-sorority hijinks in front of the Sunburnt Cow on Avenue C near Ninth Street... Maybe it's the drink-and-drown brunch weekends....



Anyway, this item in The Rundown caught our attention:

The sequel to Avenue C's The Sunburnt Cow brings the same Australians-in-exile party to the Upper West Side's post-college nightlife nexus. It's bigger, better, and has (somehow) precisely cloned its downtown clientele — this is not a place for the stroller patrol.

That fact is evident in the $18 all-you-can-drink brunch, which should create fun sidewalk traffic for moms on their way to Zabar's, as well as a series of noise complaints from their upstairs neighbors.

The menu's also a clone of the East Village institution, with Aussie-inspired cuisine — loaded up burgers, raw bar offerings, and the terrifying Pesto Shark (it's exactly what it sounds like).

It's a bar built for big blowouts. Go now and get your drink on, before the community board shuts them down.

It's too bad. This used to be a great place to go for brunch before it became a frat party. I loved the back open-air 'cave' and the food was really good. Sigh...another good place ruined by douchebag mentality.

I can't begin to figure out what those two Britneys are doing.

@Goggla. I haven't been here in years. And I don't recall how long that all-you-can-drink brunch has been going on....

@BaHa. Me neither. I'm out of it when it comes to wacky shots and what not.

@Jeremiah Moss: Perv!

And I didn't mention that I took this photo from the Sunburnt Cow Web site.

went up to free bbq on west 79th street. got there after 5pm (it started at 4). outside they were fanning the charcoal, trying to start a fire.
inside was packed to the gills, wall to wall with folks that looked like youngsters. two young women were drinking out of baby bottles. really!
the place was so loud a rock concert would have sounded tame.
there was a lot of carding at the entrance.
we figured we'd rather pay for bbq than wait there.

went up to west 79th street to try free bbq. got there after 5 and they were still fanning the coals outside trying to make a fire.

we decided we'd rather pay for bbq somewhere less stressful so we left.
nice idea though.
