Public Kitchen and Bar Queenstown - Queenstown
Public Kitchen & Bar prides itself on a sociable dining experience in a homely atmosphere.
The Public Kitchen & Bar offers quality casual dining overlooking Lake Wakatipu and the Remarkables. The offering is proudly Kiwi, with hearty home-grown dishes cooked from locally sourced ingredients by some of Queenstown's most revered culinary names.
Both owner and chef Martin James and chef Stephen Clayton, veteran restaurateurs in Queenstown, have stepped back from their fine dining expertise to focus on 'grass-roots' cooking in an environment that has an organic gastro-pub feel.
The interior, with the large tables and curious decorations are a mixture of South Island paraphernalia and relics of Queenstown's yesteryear that exude a sociable vibe; from the swinging bird-cage on the ceiling to the red New Zealand telephone box doors that double up as one of the entrances to the restaurant.
The menu presents a great meat-eater and seafood selection, and chef specialities include thyme-cooked chicken and freshly sourced clams from Otago's own Blue Skin Bay. The wine card is proudly Otago-based, but there are also a number of international tipples on offer to suit every palate.
