Hey neighbours,

Restaurant Month is back for another year, set to bolster the Auckland culinary scene by offering discounted dishes and unique events for the entire month of August.

Gastronomes can expect 31 days of specially curated menus at the value-for-money price points of $25, $40 or $55+.

Restaurants included span those from the waterfront to the CBD, and from stalwarts such as Euro, Botswana Butchery and Odettes​ Eatery, to the newcomers and the underdogs.

Viv Beck, Heart of the City chief executive, said this year’s lineup is “more world-class than ever” thanks to the “inspiring lineup of chefs”, some of whom have recently returned to Auckland from stints overseas.

For the full story, see below.

"This afternoon it was off to Pāuatahanui for a kingfisher hunt with a husband who is very good at taking my hints about it being a beautiful day whilst staring at the birds that were flying around outside!
The kingfishers were certainly in the usual place, but not really being social with each other as they were on our previous trip.
I waded out in my wellies but couldn't really get as close to them as I would have wanted to! Here are a few shots of them on various bits of driftwood, some with crabs in their mouths, some without! It was lovely to also capture the spoonbills coming into land to have a feed."
