Dunedin North Park Expands New Zealand-Inspired Menu With Weekend Brunch

January 27, 2017

New Zealand-inspired Dunedin North Park, part of the local Kiwi-family of restaurants - Queenstown Public House, Raglan Public House, Bare Back Grill, and soon-to-open Arbor - has just added a weekend brunch menu in addition to its current popular lunch and dinner selections, offering comfort food-centric dishes every Saturday and Sunday.

Dunedin's brunch menu is now available from 9am to 2pm both Saturday and Sunday and has a varied combination of sharable and main dishes inspired by New Zealand and American cuisine. Some of the distinct offerings found on the menu include a béchamel bread pudding croque madame, a Dutch-baked pancake with fried chicken, steak with shrimp and grits, and a traditional “Kiwi Breakfast” consisting of scrambled eggs, English baked beans, sausage, roasted tomato and potatoes. Signature mimosas, sangria, champagne cocktails, beer cocktails, soju-based bloody marys, porch sun tea and hand-shaken lemonade are all options to pair with any plate.

"This menu further expands our mission to share our appreciation of New Zealand culture and cuisine with the community," said PJ Lamont, co-owner of Dunedin North Park. "We added some of our very own personal favorite traditional brunch dishes and incorporated them with popular ingredients in New Zealand to create new and unique dishes we truly love, and hope our guests will too."

Dunedin North Park first opened serving lunch and dinner in July 2016 after the completion of the property styled by local acclaimed designer Michael Soriano of Onairos Design. His inspiration for creating the warm, comfortable, and thought-provoking ambiance respectfully incorporates aspects of the native New Zealand Maori culture and the Southeastern region of New Zealand where the coastal city of Dunedin is located. The “koru” design, a traditional spiral symbol representing an unfurling silver fern frond signifying new life and growth within the Maori culture, was chosen as Dunedin’s logo as it also directly relates to the dynamic changes taking place throughout the community of North Park.
