BROOK­LYN FLOW­ERS

One of the few male florists in the coun­try, Brook Thom­son wanted to add a “hint of mas­culin­ity” to the in­te­rior of Brook­lyn Flow­ers, his new Pon­sonby Road shop. He de­signed it him­self with cop­per and navy touches and in­dus­trial con­crete benches. To make flow­ers more af­ford­able, Brook of­fers a $25 market pick, and will soon host in-store work­shops. 65 MacKelvie St, Pon­sonby, brook­lyn­flow­ers.co.nz

XOONG

Chi­nese and Ja­panese com­bine with the ut­most diplo­macy at Xoong. With the help of in­te­rior de­sign stu­dio Ctrl Space, the eatery in­cludes a min­i­mal­ist Ja­panese room and a lively Chi­nese bar. Head chef Cameron Knox’s menu is equally in­fused, with dishes such as wood roasted duck with oys­ter mush­rooms and a drunken sauce. 424 Mt Eden Rd, Mt Eden, xoong.co.nz
