I had the opportunity to take a break from day to day life earlier this year and met with my Brother in Auckland. When asked if I knew of anywhere good to have a night of food and wine I knew the answer. Auckland has many amazing restaurants but I picked Merideth's, from a list of many, due to recommendations from many and a little research. My Brother and I were booked 3 months in advance for a 7pm sitting of 9 course and wine match. We were greeted by a wonderfully bubbly and enthusiastic Maitre'd and shown our table. A Peroni each was ordered while we looked at the degustation to ensue and each course explained in detail. Our server was intimate, immaculately presented and very friendly which can be rare in high end Restaurants. The arrival of each course was exact with description and knowledge, wine matches complimented perfectly. I do, however, feel that sous-vide methods were a little over-used when skill and timing could create a superior product with regards to the Duck and Pork dishes. No doubt in my mind that the entire team that creates the atmosphere, food and service aspects at Merideth's is world class. After some 4 hours and some, my reunion with my Brother was one of the most memorable evenings I have had for many years. Tip of the cap to you Merideth's team, outstanding food, true staff, and a perfect night for two old boys to catch up with a touch of class for once.
