Despite the hurdles the hospitality industry has faced over the past two years, we have been spoiled 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.
