Auckland fine-dining restaurant Clooney has announced it will now be open every night of the week.
As one of Auckland’s longest-standing fine dining restaurants, Clooney has been a constant on the growing and evolving dining landscape in New Zealand. Its move to open seven days shows that demand for the exquisite experience at Clooney is not slowing down.
“It is hugely important that Auckland is seen as one that serves its international guest and locals alike with a diverse dining scene, a dining scene that offers selection and availability seven days a week,” said owner Tony Stewart.
In recent times the deluge of new openings and the swift shift to more casual ‘fusion’ and shared dining has seen Aucklanders, and visitors, inundated with the newest and hottest eateries. Clooney remains one of a handful of fine-dining establishments still performing at the top of its game with an ever changing menu and the finest team both in the kitchen and front of house. Stewart puts this down to staying true to the vision he had for Clooney nearly ten years ago and continually evolving while looking inwards for improvement.
“Clooney is more than just dining, it starts before you sit down, the luxurious design, curved leather booths, the maître d, the ambience, all these elements combine to evoke a feeling of belongingness, it’s intimate, but fun and of course delicious.”
Clooney’s recipe for success works and in turn they have been receiving restaurant/cuisine awards in every one of its ten years.
