Sustainable, plant-based cuisine
As vegetarian and vegan fare becomes more sophisticated, Christchurch restaurants are beginning to use vegetables more creatively. Gatherings focuses on sustainable local cuisine, and a progressive style of cooking. The restaurant highlights the connection between what we eat and the planet that we live on.
Trust the chef
Trust the chef is a dining concept at upscale eateries that’s resurfacing throughout New Zealand’s foodie scene. It’s a great option for those who want to put their fate in the hands of highly skilled chef, and also appeals to those who can’t make up their minds. Recently opened, Inati is an excellent place to give it a go in Christchurch.
Cold-pressed cocktails are taking balance to a whole new level. Mixing your liquor with cold-pressed juice or fresh nut-mylks will keep you feeling light and energised during an evening out. There are plenty of organic cold-pressed options in Christchurch, including Green Roots Juicery and Born and Raised.
Boozy Hot Chocolate
We’re counting down the days until spring, but in the meantime boozy hot chocolates are the way to our hearts. O.G.B. makes a show-stopping Disaronno hot chocolate that might just have you hanging on to winter just a little bit longer.
