The Brickworks, LynnMall

New Lynn

Opened late last year, Bodrum Kitchen is a bright blue and white sun-trap, situated within the still-new and shiny Brickworks development at New Lynn mall. It’s run by the Isik family, with Feriza and Nigar driving the menu of Turkish/Greek cuisine.

The protective, Turkish evil eye was a key inspiration for the interior’s design and proliferates, from an installation of 150 hanging glass ornaments above the central bar to lapel pins worn by staff. With furniture imported directly from Bodrum, coffee roasted on site and handmade Turkish Delight, made in front of customers by Greek chef Nada, Alex Isik’s attention to detail is impressive.

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!
