Restaurant Review: Rothko

Cuisine 6 September 2018

Three gorgeous but completely unexpected golden chandeliers hang in the vestibule of Rothko’s kitchen. Diners seated on the outside deck can spy them; it’s a testament to the eccentricity of this relative newcomer in the rural countryside that nothing is quite as it seems.

Rothko is in Matakana, one of Auckland’s newest day-out destinations. On a rustic property an hour north of Auckland, lawyers Anthony and Sandra Grant have spent almost 10 years and millions of dollars to create their project, Sculptureum. It is a beautifully curated collection of glass art, paintings and sculpture set in tailored gardens and surrounded by their vineyard where they grow chardonnay and red grapes.

Restaurant Review: Rothko, Matakana

Jesse Mulligan for Viva 4 July 2018

At Rothko the chicken is deboned, wrapped in medallions then roasted. It’s a luscious proposition, served on smoked pumpkin puree and topped with crisped sage and kale leaves.

This wholesome, thoughtful dish was typical of everything we ate, and our slow-cooked mutton shank served with baked quince was total pleasure too. It came with freekeh — a grain that is fun to say and lovely to eat, and this one seemed to have reached almost risotto-level in the amount of flavour the chef had managed to magic into it.
