The Grove

Auckland, New Zealand

Located in the heart of the city, near the historic St Patrick’s Cathedral, The Grove has been a trusted special-occasion destination for discerning Aucklanders since American expats Michael and Annette Dearth opened here in 2004. With its effortlessly chic dining room characterised by glossy wooden floors, soft lighting and well-spaced-out tables, The Grove serves contemporary, seasonally-led degustation menus designed to exemplify the best of modern New Zealand cuisine. Head chef Cory Campbell (ex-Noma, Copenhagen, Vue de Monde, Melbourne and Kokomo, Fiji) works with small suppliers to source top-notch raw ingredients – from Trevally Celeriac to Ruakākā kingfish and Te Matuku oysters – and knows how to make them sing in his cooking. Case in point: his innovative crayfish doughnuts, which offer diners an immersive, malty flavour sensation. Thoughtful wine pairings serve to highlight the incredible quality and diversity of New Zealand’s viniculture.
