{Eating Out NZ} Logan Brown

So let’s start with our first taste of Wellington. In a lovely old bank building, Logan Brown is located in the popular Cuba Street; and has a great variety of local wines and foods to choose from.

Shaun Clouston is the head chef and partner at the award winning fine dining restaurant. You can pop in for a casual meal, a drink or a quick bite before a show. Logan Brown has it all, including a private function room. With an emphasis on serving the best seasonal ingredients from local producers, as well as favouring organic and fair trade.

Penny and I were running late due to delayed flights, so we met Ed and Claire there as they were just finishing off their entrées. Penny and I settled for a light entrée course with side dishes to leave room for dinner, whilst Ed and Claire indulged in their main courses.

We started with an amuse bouche or koha, a crab infused panna cotta with micro herbs.

I went for a daily special that was the Pāua ravioli. My boss who is from New Zealand was telling me about paua before I left, so I knew I wanted to try it as it was local. It was delicious, delicate and rich all at the same time.

Penny went for another daily special, the scallops.

Line-Caught Snapper with Yellow-Foot Paua, Fava Beans & Parmesan Crusted Fennel

Rangitikei Lamb Rack with Milk Braised Belly, Cauliflower Cheese & Crushed Peas

We shared Truffled Fries with Reggiano Parmesan, and Wagyu Fat Potatoes with Habanero Mayonnaise and as well as a green salad.

Little crayfish IN the bar! There are little fish swimming on the other side of the bar.
