Riccarton house bistro & garden bar opening night!
PS. Pic above is not of me, just
hapless happy party goers :D
I was lucky enough to be invited to the post-quake summer re-launch of Riccarton House Bistro, set in the stunning surrounds of Deans Bush yesterday evening. The Taste Events team have managed to put together a truly fantastic space, offering really fantastic local seasonal fare that is impressive without being pretentious. The summer menu looks interesting without being whacky and offers some great inspiration for the foodies out there who also cook. It’s hard for me to express just how excited I am about how this place is going to lift the game of Christchurch eating institutions. Instead I’ll try to let the pictures speak for themselves.
Just imagine top-notch Farmers Market produce being used at your local cafe, bistro and bar.
Imagine it also being set in a stunning garden where sculptured bushes meet the crazy native bushes lining the river.
Imagine nibbling outside in the summer, over clinking cold glasses…
…and candlelight in the evening.
Imagine rushing inside to the warm marquee when cool summer rain hits
Grab another drink with friends, relax and flash a thank-you grin at the Taste Events team, who have put all of this together!
