Concierge.com's insider take:
It's won every culinary award in the country—and this dinky 30-seat dollhouse is still the best restaurant in the North Island's "Windy City." Here, classically trained Maori chef Rex Morgan, who delights in sourcing the best and rarest ingredients, serves up stunning (and frequently changing) eight-course degustation menus. Dishes might include seared venison served with black pudding and a thyme-porcini foam; grilled chicken breast with duck confit and Szechuan-spiced butternut puree; or lamb shank with charred eggplant in a red curry cream sauce. Make reservations well in advance.
Dinner only. Closed Sundays.
