CHRISTCHURCH RIGHT NOW
What's the Haps?
DINING WITH THE STARS
You can enjoy an evening with the stars (the astrological ones) at the new Stellar Restaurant in Riccarton. The flash European food with a Kiwi twist is the primary attraction, but there's secondary incentive: the spectacular look. A central glass ceiling acts as a window to the night sky, with the rest of the roof composed of star-spangled glass. Looks heavenly!
The crazy cats from Cookai Japanese Restaurant are aiming for something a little different with their new Papanui venture Cookai Gold Fusion Cuisine; branching away a little bit from the more traditional fare at the Cookai mothership, they're cooking up tasty creations along the lines of the crab burger (pictured) and sushi cupcakes.
Qb Studios Gallery
Cityscape's funky new HQ in hip Addington development Qb Studios not only houses happening businesses, but has a bit of a sideline going on, too; it's a gallery space that showcases a range of works by local artists. Viewings are at opening events or by appointment – check out www.qbstudios.co.nz for details on the artworks currently on show.
