Pasture

"It is as refined as any white-tablecloth restaurant, yet as personal as an intimate dinner party at a friend’s house, if your friend was the best chef in Auckland."

Pasture is an independent restaurant providing a fine dining experience unlike any other in New Zealand. Seating only 25, diners are presented with a unique set menu based on the practices of cooking with fire, foraging and fermenting. It has been awarded both “Restaurant of the Year” and “Best Chef” in 2019. The design of the restaurant began with a deeply considered briefing process where the experimentation presented in the menu was examined carefully. The design of the service spaces and dining room sprang from this understanding. Combining the challenges of a world class kitchen and an unusual service strategy, the design team worked closely with the owners to develop a spatial arrangement which supported the unique dining experience.
