Elk Eatery

Originally from a fashion background in Australia, Prue Standen changed to the hospitality industry and is now the owner of newly opened Elk Eatery in Graham Street, Auckland CBD.
The eatery has an open kitchen and an array of healthy options.
“Fresh simple food, we believe in healthy habits not restrictions,” Standen said.
The fit out was done by Industrial Design NZ, with some of the furniture made from reclaimed wood. Centering the café is a long copper bench top. The walls, both wooden and brick, feature unique Elk lettering made from greenery. Fitting with Elk’s health theme, the menu includes an Acai Berry Bowl with banana, coconut flakes and berries, mixed quinoa salad with buffalo mozzarella, roast tomatoes, baby spinach, balsamic, and mint and honey vinaigrette. The menu also offers a six hour pulled pork baguette with spicy slaw, hand cut agria chips and mayonnaise, and a standout dish is the Elk Roasted Salmon Fillet with sautéed asparagus and grilled halloumi. A selection of local and Australian wines and craft beers are on offer. A tapas menu is open on Thursday and Friday evenings.
