Hole in the Wall
This new Australian restaurant's soaring glass windows make its aesthetics a far cry from its name, yet it maintains an under-the-radar feeling (for now). Unlike visiting its Downtown Aussie counterparts such as Two Hands and Bluestone Lane, coming to Hole in the Wall won't entail an hour-long wait for an açai bowl. It's also a standout in the area, considering that Murray Hill doesn't have brunch spots jostling for space like the streets of Nolita do. With plants trickling down sky-high concrete walls and a cool industrial vibe, this place is a sure bet for impressing your friends when you drag them above 30th Street on a Sunday. The buttery chilli scrambled eggs on sourdough toast, pulled pork benedict and three-cheese melt on levain from Balthazar make it completely worth the trek.
