Clever Cuisine

Ask any food writer: Wellington is New Zealand’s cuisine capital. It's home to hundreds of restaurants and cafes (including a hat-trick of acclaimed Cuisine Magazine’s Restaurant of the Year Supreme Award winners), some of the country’s best coffee roasters and New Zealand’s premier culinary festival, and allegedly more cafes and bars per head of population than New York City. Being perfectly nestled between two of the country’s finest wine regions – Martinborough to the North and Marlborough to the South – is the icing on the culinary cake.
