Tastiest new spots

It seems there's always a new eatery or bar that's just opened up in Wellington. Here are some of the most recent and recommended.

Pickle & Pie

Pickle & Pie is a New York style deli on Lombard Lane. It's modern take on a NY delicatessen, complete with pastrami sandwiches, salads, and of course, pies!

Hot Sauce

QT Museum Wellington cranks up the cool with Asian inspired dishes and banging cocktails; an ideal spot for lazy afternoon grazing, vibrant evening dining or a cheeky nightcap or three.


Housed on the top floor of a waterfront building on Oriental Parade, Pomelo serves Asian enthused dishes to match their stunning views of Wellington harbour. 

The Old Quarter

The Old Quarter brings a modern Vietnamese fusion menu to Dixon Street, plus you can find a decent selection of local and international beers, wines by the glass and bottle, and some Vietnamese-inspired cocktails.

Gipsy Kitchen

You can now find Gipsy Kitchen in the CBD as well as in Strathmore. Pop into their new spot for superb deli items and delicious sweet treats - be sure to try the rhubarb scone smothered in caramel!

Fortune Favours

Fortune Favours saved an old industrial building and restored it as a new brewpub, brewing on site and serving fresh beer and food. 

Forage Kitchen + Bar

Located in the Grand Mercure Hotel, Forage Kitchen + Bar prepare food inspired by the cultures that make up our vibrant city. Using every edible part from flower to root and nose to tail, they aim to create things which are uniquely Wellington.


Two Grey

Relax in sophisticated surroundings and enjoy an extensive drinks list and an array of local and international tastes for lunch or dinner, or start the morning with house-made moreish waffles or an acai smoothie bowl, and Two Grey’s single origin bottomless coffee by local favourite, Coffee Supreme. 

The Botanist

Tucked away in Lyall Bay is The Botanist, serving up mouth-watering views, and equally mouth-watering food. Herbivores rejoice! This place serves only vegetarian and vegan fare.

Comes & Goes

Insta-worthy meals await you at Chef Sean Lim's Comes & Goes in Petone. Food is plated to perfection, covered in herbs and flowers, giving you plenty of Insta-worthy fodder.


Brought to you by the La Boca Loca family, Boquita is real, delicious, plant-based food. Expect a range of organic and plant-based Mexican meals, perfect for a nutritious lunch or dinner.


If Wellington was a bar, it would be HUSK. The brewery/roastery/bar/restaurant has everything a Wellingtonian could need - good beer, good coffee, good grub, good vibes.
