An award winner in European Fine Dining, Parnell 149 has a lightness of touch that few others can boast. Specialising in stunning seafood and European plates, each dish is prepared and presented with perfection for a high-end dining experience you’re unlikely to forget.
Where no smudge of puree is out of place, Parnell 149’s attention to detail is striking. Their bistro-style dining room is elevated with a slick monochrome colour scheme, the wicker chairs that are reminiscent of authentic Italian bistros and the bustling patio loses none of its trademark glamour.
As promised, traditional European flavours line the menu in the form of perfectly balanced, intuitive plates. The star of the show has to be the seafood. Entrees include the signature fontina baked crab lasagne, the lemon pepper garlic prawns with garlic bread or the braised duck ravioli with smoky lemon guacamole.
The hero dish has to be the 3 fish, 3 ways, brimming with fresh water salmon, snapper and market fish. All cooked your way either baked with lemon parsley, potato salad and creamed corn, grilled with butternut squash arugula risotto or pan-fried with golden polenta croutons and Greek salad.
As for the meat dishes, only the finest local produce will do. Purees, ratatouilles, seasoned greens and contemporary sauces dance alongside chargrilled sirloin from Awhi Farm, lamb rump from Hawkes Bay and the Kiwi staple done right, pork belly. Beautiful European fare is on the menu for all.
