With the move to Alert Level 4 from 11.59pm on Tuesday 17 August, Heart of the City’s Restaurant Month is on hold until further notice and the events planned for Chef’s Table at Mr. Morris on Thursday 19 August, and MASU Unleashed at Weta Workshop Unleashed, on Friday 27 August will both be postponed to a later date. If you have tickets to either of these events you will receive an email from iTICKET with further details. Stay safe. 

Chef Michael Meredith was born in the island-nation of Samoa and grew up watching his mother cook in the markets of Apia. Although street food is far from the elegantly innovative cuisine of Meredith’s and Mr Morris today, Michael still credits his mother and his Samoan upbringing for laying a foundation for his no-waste culinary philosophy. He has a unique style and a reputation as a conjurer of flavour and texture. He also believes there is innovation in simplicity – the innovation is to transform a seasonal ingredient, so it creates a cuisine that is simple and pure.

The menu at Mr Morris is less technique-driven than his previous restaurant Meredith’s. Avid foodies will remember the much-lauded recognition Meredith’s received for redefining New Zealand cuisine as well as its numerous accolades received over a decade in operation.

For one very exclusive evening, Michael Meredith is bringing back the forgotten dishes of Meredith’s and offering an up-close and private dining experience in Mrs Morris the private dining room in the restaurant, that will have you reliving the fond memories and forgotten dishes of the well-loved Meredith’s with a five-course menu matched to exquisite wines.

This event starts at 7pm. 

Courses: 5 courses including snacks with wine matching
