Good Food Guide - - Dunedin -

With gilt-framed mir­rors, ban­quettes and a mar­ble­topped bar backed by a wall of wine bot­tles, Two Chefs Bistro has a Parisian feel. Adding to the sense of so­phis­ti­ca­tion are the well-trained, wel­com­ing staff, of­fer­ing at­ten­tive but not in­tru­sive ser­vice. The epony­mous chefs are He­len Mason and Greg Cock­roft, vet­er­ans of the Dunedin din­ing scene who serve up­mar­ket bistro fare with a nod to France, but also em­brac­ing fu­sion and con­tem­po­rary cui­sine. You might choose a clas­sic coun­try ter­rine of pork, rab­bit and duck served with tamar­illo chut­ney, or a slow-cooked Asian-spiced duck on grilled ku­mara with a salad of Asian leaves. Cock­roft’s wine list is in­di­vid­ual, with an in­trigu­ing se­lec­tion of un­com­mon wines in­clud­ing older vin­tages, plus a num­ber by the glass and some craft beers.
