Restaurant Month 2020

News story
Thursday 7 May 2020

Registrations for Restaurant Month 2020 are now closed.

This iconic event will once again showcase the best of the city centre’s dining scene across 31 tantalising days. Restaurant Month continues to be Auckland’s largest and most popular dining event and has continuously delighted the taste buds of Aucklanders and visitors - you can see highlights from last year here.

Funded and promoted by Heart of the City as one of our key annual campaigns, Restaurant Month encourages increased dining activity and spending in restaurants and builds the profile and perception of the city centre.

To best support businesses in the recovery from the impacts of COVID-19, we’ve made some changes to the event to allow a broader range of businesses to participate in different ways.

Ways to be part of Restaurant Month 2020

  • The core ‘Dine In’ Restaurant Month offering for table service restaurants - with set menus at $25, $40 and $55+
  • A new ‘At Home’ menu category for table service restaurants with pick up or delivery options
  • A new ‘$15 or less’ category – aimed at the wider range of eateries, cafes and takeaways in the city centre

Click here for full details of the categories above. Menu criteria also apply. Businesses will be able to participate in the category (or categories) that best suits them.
