AT­MOS­PHERE

Central Otago Mirror - - FOOD FOR THOUGHT -

It had been a long time since I or my friend Jackie Boyd had been up­stairs to the var­i­ous bars that have pre­ceded The China Grill.

Tu was an at­ten­tive host and ex­plained the evo­lu­tion of the premises into a smart, taste­fully dec­o­rated Chi­nese restau­rant in red, black, and gold.

Af­ter eight months of ren­o­va­tions, Tu pre­ferred a soft open­ing in the May shoul­der sea­son.

One cou­ple was din­ing when we ar­rived. Two peo­ple ar­rived later.

We sat by the large win­dows. Dur­ing the day this would have lovely views but it was not the warm­est place to sit at night.
