Despite the hurdles the hospitality industry has faced over the past year, we have been spoilt for choice with all the brand new restaurants arriving on Auckland’s dining scene. From excellent casual offerings to exceptional fine dining establishments, the city’s latest and greatest new openings run the gamut of genres, bringing a wealth of new options that we didn’t know we were missing. See the esteemed shortlist below and be sure to cast your vote — if there’s an establishment you think we may have overlooked, be sure to add them in the comment box.
Voting has now closed. The 2021 Denizen Hospo Heroes presented by American Express will be announced in the Winter issue of Denizen magazine (released on 24th May).
Everybody who votes goes in the draw to win one of three $1000 vouchers to be spent at one of American Express’ Dining Collection restaurants.
