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.

Hopefully you will have seen the recent story in the Upper Hutt Leader about the future of Main St.
Upper Hutt Mayor Wayne Guppy said all options, including apartments, are on the table for the future development of Main Street. A recent social media post by Marita Manns Maass resulted in a wide ranging discussion on the future of the main shopping street.
Maass, who described the "street as a dog's breakfast" suggested the council should look to Europe for design inspiration and for ways to reduce the number of empty shops.
Ideas suggested included making the street pedestrian only.
Tell us what you would like to see done with the street to make it more attractive.
If you do not want your comments used by Stuff put NFP.
