Metro Best Restaurants in Auckland - Delicious472 Richmond Rd, Grey Lynn. Ph 360-7590.

Lunch Wednesday-Friday; dinner Tuesday-Saturday.


If you live in Henderson or Pt Chev or Ellerslie, it probably seems grossly unfair that Grey Lynn has a great local bistro, when they’ve already got all of Ponsonby to choose from. But Grey Lynn has Delicious because Grey Lynn locals support Delicious. And Delicious repays that support. Proprietor Geoffrey Chunn runs a cosy, cheerily informal dining room where the service is quick and efficient, and from the open kitchen they produce a steady stream of excellent Italian meals. The menu has barely changed in years, but when the food is this good, why complain? Note, though, that prices have changed: mains listed on the website for a little under $30 have now crept over that mark. Everything’s available as takeout.

A favourite dish: Tortelloni with Italian sausage, silverbeet and porcini cream.

Metro N°440 is out now!

With progressive councillors starting to score some wins under what was anticipated to be a reactionary major, Hayden Donnell asks: Has Wayne Brown gone woke?
Plus: we go out and investigate Auckland’s nightlife (or in some cases, the lack thereof), with best bars (with thanks to Campari); going-out diaries from Chlöe Swarbrick, BBYFACEKILLA.mp3, Poppa.Jax & more; a look into Auckland’s drugs by Don Roew (who’s holding and how much they paid for it); we go on the campaign trail with Willie Jackson, talk to gallerist Michael Lett, drink martinis and alternative wines, start seeing a therapist, visit Imogen Taylor’s studio, look into Takutai Tarsh Kemp’s wardrobe. And more!
