The Langham Hotel Auckland has opened its new restaurant, Eight. Named after the eight kitchens that comprise the restaurant, diners can choose from a range of world cuisine, while interacting with the chefs in the eight open kitchens.
Jeffrey van Vorsselen, Managing Director of The Langham, said that the culinary journey concept also enables diners to create their own personal degustation, allowing them to fully appreciate the cuisine from each kitchen at their own pace, with as many dishes and intervals as desired.
“Eight is extremely exciting and will redefine expectations of hotel dining in New Zealand. Simply put – Eight is great. It is a fun yet sophisticated place to eat, where dining is no longer passive, where diners have the luxury of choice and where the theatre of cooking forms part of the total experience,” said van Vorsselen.
The eight kitchens have been named after journeys and destinations which also reflect the type of cuisine available at each. The kitchens include the Silk Road (wok and dim sum) Spice Route (Indian tandoori and curries), Tokaido (sushi and sashimi), Route 66 (New York style grille), Great Ocean Road (seafood and oysters), Garden Route (salads), Champs-Elys
