Dinner at a refurbished bank in Wellington
Logan Brown restaurant opened in 1996 and is located in the former Bank of New Zealand building on Cuba street. It’s a grand restaurant where my friend Jane and I had a truly lovely evening.
It’s a pretty small restaurant really with a lovely bar area, huge columns, ornate ceilings and dark wooden floorboards that add to the ambience of this lovely place.
We had made a reservation as knew it was required due to it’s popularity and when we arrived, we were seated at an intimate table and whilst I took a walk around to take some photos, Jane ordered us a glass of wine.
The waitress was particularly helpful with my request to have vegetarian dishes without cheese and in the end I ordered a side dish as an entree which was the Logan Brown fried cauliflower with spiced yoghurt. Very tasty!! Jane ordered the Ceviche fish dish with lemon cream, citrus, palm sugar and coriander. Also delicious.
The food at this restaurant is sourced from sustainable ingredients and we were told that whenever possible ingredients are local, seasonal, organic and Fairtrade.
For our main courses Jane ordered the venison with braised osso bucco, malted parsnip and apple and I ordered the risotto bianco which had summer broad beans and truffled peas. I love risotto and this was very good.
And…of course the obligatory chips (which I must say Jane didn’t eat-so I did!!)
And lastly a cup of coffee and a peppermint tea…a wonderful night with a good friend; great atmosphere and lovely food.
