Portlander Steakhouse Nominated as Finalist

Wellington’s Portlander Steakhouse Nominated as Finalist in National Hospitality Awards for Excellence

The capital’s most lauded and award-winning steakhouse has reached the finalist list again two years after opening its fledgling doors, in the prestigious Hospitality New Zealand national excellence awards.

Creatively thinking outside the square with the passionate pursuit of excellence has propelled the restaurant to be one of the best operators in the business, a view shared by both the judging panel and Rydges Wellington General Manager, Simon White.

“Two years ago when we opened Portlander, our vision was to create a restaurant that’s continually evolving and pushing the boundaries - a place where our customers would become loyal and ardent advocates.

We feel that we have now succeeded and it’s such a thrill to see all the hard work come to fruition and ultimately recognised by our peers with a finalist nomination for ‘Best Restaurant’.”

The winner will be announced Thursday 18 September at Hospitality New Zealand’s black tie Awards for Excellence dinner at the Energy Events Centre in Rotorua.
