BACK TO THE FUTURE

Let’s take a look at the old and the new” said the editor. “What we were eating in New Zealand back in the day versus how that dish would look on today’s dinner table.”

FIRE WORKS

The locked door has become part of the folklore at Pasture, Ed Verner’s Auckland restaurant. How six guests per sitting amble down the Parnell laneway to find the restaurant barred, have to wait outside until, bang on time, comes the reveal with Ed ushering diners inside.

RESTAURANT REVIEWS

Earl

CHRISTHCURCH: As a born-and-bred Londoner, it’s very rare for me to walk into a restaurant, especially in Christchurch, and wonder exactly where I’ve been transported to.

New York Grill

AUCKLAND: New York is famous for some uniquely US eating-house genres – the deli, the diner and the grill – each of which run to a tried-and-true formula and service approach.

Atlas

WELLINGTON: Hemming in atlas on one side is the Duncan Cotterill law firm and on the other side the giant Deloitte tower, both of which should supply this posh new restaurant with its natural clientele.

Central Fire Station Bistro

NAPIER: Built to a Prairie-influenced design in 1923 by noted architect Louis Hay, Napier’s old Central Fire Station served the city until 1969, when it was converted into offices.

The Grange

AUCKLAND. Despite a couple of highlights, there were too many food flaws during our first foray into The Grange-land three months ago for us to leave completely satisfied.

Barberra Restaurant

CHRISTCHURCH. Sitting on the banks of the Avon River, new kid on the block Barberra is a sophisticated addition to the phoenixlike eating scene in the garden city.
