As we get closer to the end of the year, work meetings are shifting from planning over cups of coffee at a local café to celebrating grand achievements with flutes of champagne at Auckland’s finest restaurants. The season of long lunches is upon us and Denizen have rounded up their favourite hotspots including some of Parnell’s favourites at which to wine and dine in the lead-up to the end of the year. Be it kicking back over a tasty spread and a glass of something good at Gerome, to popping open a bottle of champagne and relaxing in the all-day sun at Cibo, to the stunningly renovated NSP where one would swear they have been transported to a Tuscan garden complete with Aperol Spitz and woodfired pizzas. So many choices right here on our back door step. To read Denizen’s full long lunch list click here.
