Few things delight us more than a meal at Remuera’s neighbourhood favourite, Sìso. Thanks to its cosy interiors and its fresh Mediterranean fare, this is one eatery we find ourselves rebooking time and time again, whether it be for a romantic date night or an indulgent long lunch or dinner with friends (and everything in between).
Now, with the summer season heating up, it is to Sìso that we turn once again as the perfect place for the convivial get-togethers that inevitably take precedence at this time of year. And given that this stellar eatery has recently launched a delicious summer menu, the prospect of a visit here is even more appealing than ever before.
The new menu reads as an array of bold, contemporary dishes that capture the mouth-watering flavours of the Mediterranean and highlight seasonal ingredients. Those seeking a light, refreshing bite will find it in the grilled local octopus with tzatziki, baby cucumber and dill, the delicate yellow tail kingfish crudo with fermented fennel, chilli and pomegranate or the creamy burrata served with chopped peas, grilled asparagus and almond butter.
That said, the new main dishes do a good job of stealing the limelight here, with options like market fish with Southland clams, saffron risoni, green chilli and lemon, or hand cut linguine with Skull Island prawns, fermented chilli and semi-dried tomato, sitting alongside slightly heavier dishes like scaloppini of veal served with pickled golden beetroot, ras el hanout butter and toasted almonds, and a seriously tender Speckle Park beef scotch with eggplant caviar, whipped tahini and smoked bone marrow jus.
So, when considering where to book for your end-of-year dining affair, or simply for a delicious bite, we suggest that Sìso is one of your first calls. In fact, in light of its recent menu revamp, we have decided to give one lucky Denizen the chance to win a table for six (valued at $600), in order to experience it for themselves.
