Logan Brown (192 Cuba Street)
I sometimes forget as I’m walking up Cuba Street, that nestled among the op shops and emporiums, the hipsters and musicians, lies Logan Brown; one of Wellington’s finest dining restaurants. Located in an old bank, even once you spot the building from the outside it’s still hard to believe the class and quality that lies within.
Bookings are absolutely essential. There are a range of dining options available; including the degustation, a la carte menu (both somewhat pricey) and also the great value bistro menu. For only $45 you can go to Logan Brown and indulge in a three course set menu (with options available) provided you are out by 7.30pm. It is an incredible way to sample some of the delights that Logan Brown’s chefs have to offer.
Logan Brown also plays home to a number of events, especially during Wellington on a Plate. Last year I went to a fabulous night celebrating the cuisines of some of Wellington’s refugees (read about it here) and they also host the annual 1920’s themed speakeasy. The cocktail menu at Logan Brown is exceptional and expansive, lots of classics with lots of twists.
Logan Brown is a restaurant that should be classed as a ‘must-visit’ on everyone’s list for fine-dining. It is a unique experience and I am sure you’ll walk away happy!
