What’s Cookin’ Good Lookin’?

Auckland’s answer to bespoke private dining is now at Seafarers.

It has to be seen to be believed – The Matisse Room on Level 5 of the Seafarers Building on Tyler Street is an eye-wateringly beautiful thing; matte black and honey pine surfaces are framed by opulent, ceiling to floor mushroom-coloured drapes and every detail is flawless: from the glassware to the stunning floral installations. Visually, it’s incredible, but that’s just the start.

This is Seafarers’ newest offering. In partnership with Matisse Kitchens the room can cater for groups of 15 to 60 people. Bespoke dining experiences will be led by the city’s finest: the chefs from Ostro and Ebisu, among others, are available for private bookings.

Special packages include:

The Red on Red Dinner – where generous pours of red wine are matched to red meat.
The Glass House – a vegetarian-inspired dinner which turns your 5+ a day into a very decadent affair.
The Edible Cinema – a 5-course pairing of scenes from a selection of blockbuster movies. Dishes are inspired by films like Pulp Fiction, The Hundred Foot Journey, The Grand Budapest Hotel and more.
Chefs and Champagne – a bespoke champagne-paired menu with exciting flavour combinations to tickle the nose and tempt the tastebuds.

The experience is intended to change the way we look at private dining, and we’ve no doubt it will. The Matisse Room is ready for your booking: email events@savorgroup.co.nz and let the events team begin planning an incomparable night.
