UR­BAN OYS­TER BAR & EATERY

14.5/20

Good Food Guide - - Wellington -

This ca­sual, lively spot has been a great ad­di­tion to Nel­son’s din­ing scene since open­ing its doors in late 2014. Run by Matt Bouterey, for­merly of the highly re­garded Bouterey’s, the vibe is in­dus­trial-chic and the fre­quently chang­ing menu is de­signed to share. Ev­ery­thing is fresh and flavour­some, with much of the pro­duce sourced from Bouterey’s own gar­den in nearby Ap­pleby. Less-pop­u­lar cuts of meat are put to ex­cel­lent use – ice­berg let­tuce cups hold flavour­some, ten­der pulled pork knuckle topped with nahm prik and crispy shal­lots, for ex­am­ple. Seafood is an­other high­light, such as in the “Ur­ban-style” de­con­structed ce­viche with corn tor­tillas and chilli co­conut whip. The wine list is well­con­structed and craft brews from Mapua’s Golden Bear are on tap. 278 Hardy St, Nel­son, ph: 03-546 7861, ur­baneatery.co.nz Lunch Thurs-sat, din­ner Mon-sat; larger plates $16- $27 IN BRIEF Fun, flavour­some food and drink in a great space
