The word 'gumption' refers to a certain type of enthusiasm and initiative. How appropriate, then, that this elegant restaurant shows these two qualities at every turn.
Welcome to Gumption, the star in Distinction Christchurch Hotel. It’s grand, it’s exclusive and it has an innately special quality that makes it perfect for celebrating in style. A huge white hall hosts Gumption, creating a dramatic impression that comes from its low-lying ceilings, dynamic block colour scheme and luxury materials. The perfect blend of traditional and contemporary, Gumption is bound to get tongues wagging across the city.
And with that same gumption, they tackle international cuisines and make them their own. The small plates hop from country to country with chicken spring rolls, spritely slices of bruschetta and grilled dukkah lamb with a chickpea salad. Mains make a very bold entrance with NZ green lipped mussels, a Marlborough goat curry and three different pasta dishes.
Then we move on to the grill where prime grass fed New Zealand venison. lamb and eye fillet are cooked on the chargrill to your liking and then topped with a butter of your choice. The grill is also busy flipping patties this way and that, so there's no shortage of choice over here. And if you still have room, there's nothing like a pecan pie to round off an enthusiastic and innovative meal at Gumption Restaurant.
