New Look Euro

An Auckland dining institution for 16 years, the large waterfront site on Princes Wharf has been transformed into a smaller new look Euro.
With a signature rounded counter top and pendant lights, the look is now lighter, with pale wood and shades of light grey, blue and gold. Booth seating has been added and guests can sit along the kitchen counter with food served over the pass. With a background in French cuisine and fine dining, newly appointed executive chef and My Kitchen Rules judge Gareth Stewart is at the helm. The menu features Zephyr courgettes stuffed with whipped goat curd and golden raisin vinaigrette, lasagnette with scampi and asparagus, and yellow fin tuna with avocado sorbet and smoked tomatoes. It also features braised octopus and fish bourguignon, eye fillet with ox cheek ravioli, and updated versions of Euro staples including rotisserie chicken and Peking duck pancakes. Sourcing product locally and ethically wherever possible, the fish is line caught, the chicken and eggs are free range and produce comes from a farm in West Auckland.
“Diners want something fresh, energising and new, with a bit of a story. Many want to know a product was farmed ethically and produced naturally,” Stewart said.
