What's the Haps?
New Italian Eatery for the CBD
Here at Cityscape we're very excited about the fact that that the owners of much-loved Portofino Christchurch have stayed on in the city despite the loss of their restaurant and have now opened a new Italian eatery. Portofino Christchurch was an integral element of Oxford Terrace dining: it was a place where owner Michael and his family were just as important as the (great) Italian food, dishing up a welcoming and warm atmosphere that made it a place locals made a habit of returning to. Now the family has returned to the city's CBD with a new restaurant. Now independent of the Portofino chain, the new restaurant is called Venuti and is located at 791 Colombo Street.
New Treasures out West
Exciting things are happening out in the west of Christchurch City. If you’ve travelled down Fendalton Road lately, you’ll have seen the new building going up on the corner of Fendalton Road and Clyde Road. Now construction is complete and operators are moving in … The Fitting Room has returned to its old location (albeit a brand-new building!) and The Beauty Parlour has also opened for business. Coming soon will be Procope Coffee House – formerly of Victoria Street but soon to open for caffeine fiends in Fendalton and Ilam!
New in Town
Look out for much-loved pizzeria and bar Winnie Bagoes returning to the central city. The new location is in Madras Street and we can’t wait to get there for after-work drinks!
Exciting developments from The Colombo: an authentic Mexican joint by the name of El Cantina and a branch of the Belgium Beer Café are now open.
Kennett Crafted Jewels has reopened in the Sydenham Quarter and is the place to find that perfect NZ-designed wedding or engagement ring.
