With special menus at more than 100 participating restaurants during August, Auckland Restaurant Month was once again a great success. Negociants New Zealand is very pleased to be a wine sponsor of Auckland Restaurant Month, serving a selection of fine wines from New Zealand and around the world at special events such as the International Chef Dining Series. This year saw innovative themes such as ‘Nothing for Dinner,’ where a sumptuous meal was made from food that would otherwise go to waste; and ‘Dinner in the Dark,’ where diners experience eating a meal in total darkness, and therefore accentuating other senses such as smell, touch and taste. There was an array of wonderful foodie events to choose from.
Street Eats is one of the major events held during Auckland Restaurant Month. Think street food. Really, really good street food, prepared by the city’s top restaurant chefs. Over 80 dishes from cuisines including Mexican, Thai, Indian, Middle Eastern, Spanish, Vietnamese and more were served up by more than 30 restaurants and food trucks for the fourth annual Street Eats Food Festival.
The sights, the sounds, the smells and of course the tastes are what makes this an unmissable day on every foodie’s calendar. It’s a family-friendly affair with games for the kids, a bar or two for the adults and live music for everyone throughout the day.
Negociants NZ runs two bars at this event; a wine bar featuring Joiy Sparkling Wine and Nautilus Wines of Marlborough, and a beer and cider bar, pouring Stiegl Austrian beer and Billy Apple Cider.
