Cuisine Magazine recently announced the finalists for the Cuisine Good Food Awards 2018 and we are thrilled that two of our tenants have made the list; Inati in central Christchurch and Rata in Queenstown.
Inati, which means ‘to share’ in te Reo Māori, is the realisation of a dream to invigorate dining with a sense of excitement. Owned by husband and wife team, Simon and Lisa Levy, Inati allows you to dine around the chef’s table and share in the experience that is the theatre of the kitchen. Located in the Pita Te Hori Centre in the West End, Inati offers seasonally-inspired tasting plates that challenge the notion of what a traditional dining experience is.
Rātā, owned and operated by Josh Emett and Fleur Caulton, takes its inspiration from the southern landscape and everything that epitomises New Zealand. Known for its relaxed neighbourhood feel, excellent service and exceptional food, Rātā is located away from the hustle and bustle of Queenstown, tucked away alongside heritage buildings in the town’s centre.
We wish both restaurants all the very best for the awards ceremony in October.
