Gusty But Gourmet

“With more than 300 bars, restaurants and cafes in the city alone, Wellington is certainly not short of options,” recommends Winsor Dobbin for The Sydney Morning Herald. Dobbin explores the best dining and drinking the capital city has to offer. “Logan Brown is the domain of Steve Logan and Al Brown, both popular TV chefs. The old art deco bank building is right on Cuba Street and diners can choose from a bistro menu or a la carte dining on dishes like seared hare loin with garlic custard, mulled wine, duck parfait and fig molasses, or maybe Hawke’s Bay lamb rack with olive-braised Merino shoulder, falafel and ratatouille. The Yacht Club showcases the talents of uberchef Martin Bosley, a local boy made good. While the Matterhorn, tucked away down an unpromising corridor, also serves top-notch food, has great cocktails and an admirable wine list. There’s an outdoor courtyard that’s popular in the summer months.”
