Eat race enjoy: Quality Hotel Elms
Get ready, relax, and off to the races we go.
Our city centre brims with eateries, but a sophisticated spot in the suburbs is perfect for Cup Day with friends.
The Fig Restaurant is an oasis within The Elms Hotel on Papanui Road.
“Cup Week is such a celebratory time, and Christchurch embraces it, unlike most cities in the world,” says Food and Beverage Director Ravi Naidu.
“The Fig is thrilled to be hosting two days of brunch and bubbles that we just know our customers will enjoy. The convenience of a shuttle service to both Addington and Riccarton is a point of difference, making their experience safe and that much more enjoyable.”
The Fig’s in-house Executive Chef extraordinaire, Mark McCracken has created a menu to transport taste buds and energy levels into party mode.
After a glass of Piper-Heidsieck bubbles, choose from six brunch dishes and four cocktails. Perhaps pick the Marmalade Fizz Cocktail with some FFC – that’s Fig Fried Chicken – or cool down the Huevos Rancheros house smoky beans with a quaffable Mimosa. Then it’s off to the races, all for an inclusive $75 per person. Bookings essential.
The hotel is undergoing a fabulous multi-million-dollar facelift, so staying the night, or two, is a sure bet.
