GPO Restaurant is a beautiful new eatery opened inside luxury hotel InterContinental Wellington. Located inside the former General Post Office site, it is set to become one of the hottest new dining destinations in Wellington.
GPO Restaurant is led by acclaimed Executive Chef Carl Maunder. Focusing on an international flair using local produce, the new restaurant promises an enriching dining experience in a relaxed setting.
FOOD & BEVERAGES
Send your tastebuds across the ocean with top-quality dishes, boasting a modern spin on classic cooking, and influences from rich cultures of Southern Europe, the Mediterranean, and Levant. From tapas-inspired dishes to larger shared platters, hand rolled pastas, and seafood…diners will be spoilt for choice.
Particularly, GPO highlights an exciting Fruits Of The Sea Platter, consisting of mussels, prawns, crayfish, diamond shell claims, and market oysters – which is a must-try.
Wonderfully, most products are locally grown. For instance, Chef Carl uses breads from Shelly Bay Baker, popular clams from Cloudy Bay, and the finest olive oil from Olea Estate…to name a few local suppliers. While Temuka Pottery has crafted crockery for the new restaurant.
InterContinental Wellington’s General Manager, Scott Hamilton, said in a statement: “It is exciting to unveil GPO as a strong culinary concept that will appeal to both locals and visitors, giving guests even more reason to stay with us. It feels good to welcome this exciting new dining experience to enhance our luxury line-up.”
Additionally, there will be an incredible selection of global wines from regions in Europe such as the Riviera and Andalusia in Spain. Plus, wine numbers from the Middle East and Australasia.
Certainly, GPO Restaurant is a perfect place for a birthday dinner or date night in Wellington this season. Book a table via the GPO website.
