WINE AND DINE
Sophisticated drinking and dining at Apero on K’ Road
Why Apero on Karangahape Road is one of our favourite places to eat and drink.
It’s best to book a table at this wine bar and French eatery, because while some would call it delightfully intimate – and they’d be right to – Apero is very small. Larger than life, however, is co-owner Mo Koski, who usually works the floor alone, but has more than enough charm to go around. His wife and co-owner, Leslie Hottiaux, makes the best sausage in Auckland, which you order by the quarter-metre, its giveaway coarse-ground texture indicating real meat. Swipe chunks of sausage through the grainy mustard and follow with a sliver of tangy pickle. The wine list is constantly changing but might include interesting varietals like soave or pinotage, and the low lighting is charmingly seductive while cleverly masking any spills on the shirts of messy eaters. 280 Karangahape Rd
