Vinnies has endured as one of Auckland's most popular special-occasion restaurants. Its formal, plush interior, complete with a lovely art collection, is the perfect setting for dining on an elegantly inventive menu that adds a twist to old favorites. Wild rabbit is served with fig and blue cheese, for example; spiced quail with papaya; and goose egg with asparagus. Meals are sided by selections from the Vinnie's award-winning wine list.
