Venture to the slightly rough harbor town of Lyttelton near Christchurch for some of the country's most innovative and inspirational degustation menus. The intensely seasonal options constantly evolve—often on a daily basis—and tasting adventures from five to 12 courses are available. Ingredients are harvested from small local farms and producers as well as from the restaurant's own extensive gardens; foraging in the hills and valleys of the nearby Banks Peninsula is also an integral part of the culture at Roots. Visit with an open mind and an appetite for culinary surprises to experience one of New Zealand's most memorable dining occasions. Well-curated wine matches are also available.
