Bistronomy

At Bistronomy, we’re firm believers in making everyday eating a little bit extraordinary. We’re one part local, one part global, and one part special sauce, infusing fresh Hawke’s Bay produce with far-flung ideas to create dishes which will often surprise and always delight.

Our menu changes with the seasons, inspired by the abundance and variety of edible offerings from soil & sea. We’re less about fine dining and more about fun dining, and like to make food you can share, food you can talk about, food you’ll want more of, and food you’ll come back for.

Mister D

Mister D is a little bit country and a little bit rock & roll. We believe in fresh, local produce delivered with great service but no fuss. We think we’re unpretentious but we really care about our food and large wine list.

Mister D was created by two Hawke’s Bay couples with long backgrounds in hospitality and we’ve created the kind of place we’ve always wanted to eat in. We hope you’ll join us.
