Its no secret that I am a foodie at heart. A little obsessed with café and restaurant culture and a lot obsessed with the food and wine industry that we have in New Zealand, especially here in Hawkes Bay. Leading the Hawkes Bay hospo game is the incredible Mister D Dining.
Mister D, a little bit country, a little bit rock n roll with a huge amount of class and the most incredible menu to match. Created by 2 local couples with drive and a vision, Mister D goes about offering fresh local produce in the best way possible with a no fuss attitude. The wine list and coffee is ridiculously good with a huge amount of selection to cater for a diverse range of taste buds. The
flavour obsessed folk of Mister D produce fresh bread, pasta and pastries daily with the famous Mister D custard injected donuts proving a popular choice by all.
So why is it, when so many restaurants fail to succeed, that Mister D are rocking it and proving to be leaders of the pack? The food - to die for, seriously the pulled pork on white polenta with an apple and fennel slaw should not be missed. The atmosphere, a relaxed urban feel, a welcoming yet stylish and sophisticated vibe all in one and the interior design, well what cant I say? Old school stools, massve industrial lights, incredible tiles and huge shelves stacked full of wine. One to keep on the radar, as the team at Mister D have a vision with some serious drive going on. Whats not to love?
