Kai a la Kiwi
A NZ themed restaurant – The Kiwi Grille – is doing a roaring trade in Newburyport, Massachusetts. According to owner Bruce deMustchine (ex-Hawkes Bay), the Grille served 10,000 happy customers in its first 8 weeks of opening. All meat on the menu hails from NZ, as do 85% of the wines on offer and numerous other ingredients. A day after the Grille’s June 1 opening, the state of Massachusetts held its first annual New Zealand Day.
