High-end diners refute ‘doom’ atmosphere


High-end restaurant diners refute ‘doom’ atmosphere

(Auckland – 5 February 2008)

Increased demand for high-end dining experiences will see New Zealand’s Restaurant of the Year increase its days of operation.

Despite the widely reported down-turn in the economy, Partingtons at The Langham (awarded New Zealand Restaurant of the Year at the 2006 and 2007 NZ Culinary Fares) has experienced escalating demand from food-lovers looking for a full dining experience rather than a quick sit down meal. As a result, Partingtons will open on Mondays for dinner service from 25 February 2008.

This breaks the international trend many fine-dining restaurants follow (along with local favourites such as The French Café, Vinnies and Merediths) of keeping their doors closed on Mondays.

Partingtons also holds the current best service and best wine list titles from the Metro Corbans Restaurant of the Year awards.

From 25 February 2008 Partingtons will be open for dinner from 6.00pm Monday – Saturday. The restaurant is also available for private dining.

For reservations phone 0800 61 62 61.
