365 Dominion Rd, Mt Eden. Ph 623-3140,
Lunch Friday, dinner Tuesday-Saturday. $$$

Finalist, Best Chef: Michael Meredith


Dominion Rd is never quite what it seems, and if you ever doubted that, check out this place. Merediths, hiding behind  discreetly frosted glass right on the streetfront, is one of the most elegant dining rooms in the city, run by a chef who is — could anyone doubt it? — one of our most determinedly creative. The experience is intense and endlessly rewarding.

Owner/chef Michael Meredith (pictured) focuses almost entirely on degustation now, with wines superbly matched. Tuesdays are devoted to a more informal donation-only approach (all proceeds to charity). Such a star.

A favourite dish: duck & beetroot meringues.

Metro N°441 is Out Now.

It’s our annual, inflation-busting ‘Where to Eat for Less Than $25’ list (with thanks to Uber Eats) issue! PLUS the Summer Books Special and the Auckland Property Report Card (with thanks to Barfoot and Thompson). Also, Sir Bob Harvey looks into the missing treasures in our museums and talks to Jacqui Knight about monarch butterflies. AND NOT ONLY THAT: Emil Scheffmann looks into our secondary art market, Matthew Hooton and Morgan Godfery look into the new government, Jamie Wall into the tennis, Hana Pera Aoake into the Māori response to the war in Palestine and Abby Howells into being the lion in the Wizard of Oz. We also find the 10 Best Bakeries in Auckland, a great recipe for a Japanese Breakfast and the king of the supermarket pasta brands. All this and much, much more.
