Dreamy summer dining: gin gin
Christchurch city is coming alive with summer days nearing, and so too is local restaurant, gin gin.
At their special location on electric New Regent Street, gin gin are preparing for long summer days and nights ahead, with an unmatched alfresco dining experience coming soon.
Whether it’s long lunching with friends, a relaxed get-together or a special celebration, gin gin’s intimate and inviting setting caters to all. The warm service and welcoming atmosphere allow diners to relax, get comfortable and indulge in the everchanging, seasonal menus.
Celebrating unique food and drinks is at the core of gin gin’s offering, and by sourcing as much produce locally as possible, the dishes work to celebrate the delicious ingredients in their most natural form. Their focus on local, fresh and refined food shines in the menu, which continues to evolve and refresh as new produce comes into season.
Arriving in perfect timing for warm evenings is gin gin’s grill on the street. From Thursday-Sunday, you can experience the incredible flavours of the coal barbeque, creating magic outside the restaurant. Using the same ingredients as the kitchen, the grill will bring a whole new flavour profile to seafood and meat, paired perfectly with vibrant fresh produce and created with the same delicious, and interesting flair head Chef Jackson is known for.
Relax in the native garden setting on the street front and soak in all of the sights, smells, and sounds, and of course indulge in the tastes the grill creates.
And where there is food, there must be drinks. Also joining in on the outdoor fun will be the new street bar. Just in time for glorious sunset evenings, the outdoor bar will also be open Thursday-Sunday. The rotating drink offering will include a seasonal cocktail, local tap beer, and of course – a special gin and tonic. Sounds like the perfect spot on a warm evening.
