Foxglove Bar & Kitchen - Wellington

The Fox Glove Bar and restaurant is located at 57 Customhouse Quay Wellington Central and is getting a great name for its food.

It is hot hot hot.

The thing I really like about Fox Glove (apart from its incredible world class food) - is that it focuses on cocktails rather than wine - I'm "wined out" - as it is so dam cheap these days - orange juice is more expensive!

I'm all for Wellington being the mixology capital of the world (even though some would say a 'mixologist' is a wanky name for a bartender).

They have spent a million dollars on the fit-out - and it is fantastic.

I shared a grouper plate -  being poor these days (lunch time menu)- it was supreme.

Take a look at the menu!
