GPK - serving up gourmet greats this summer
GPK is a local icon on Hurstmere Road serving wood-fired gourmet pizzas, Kiwi favourites and homemade yummy desserts!
Now with craft beers on tap, an amazing wine and cocktail list, GPK is the perfect place to spend the upcoming long summer nights.
GPK opened in 2001 but is now under new Kiwi ownership, and still retains the experienced front of house and kitchen management team.
'We have a great group of regulars who have been coming to GPK for years,” says General Manager Stephen Taylor. “Some remember coming to GPK as kids and are now bringing their own children!"
Having worked in the now closed Ponsonby GPK since 2008, Steve is now seeing more of the regular customers coming from across the bridge to get their favourite pizzas!
Still serving the classics such as the Country and Bombay pizzas, Smoked Chicken Salad, Sashimi Selection, Twice-cooked Pork Belly, Half Duck, and Angus Eye Fillet, not to mention the unforgettable Chocolate Brownie! The expertly chosen wine list contains a selection of some of New Zealand tastiest wines, which can be paired perfectly with one of the New Zealand inspired dishes or gourmet wood-fired pizzas from the extensive new Spring menu.
“Our 'Lunch Express Menu' is more popular than ever,” says Stephen. “It's amazing value: Two courses with a glass of wine for under $30!”
Happy hour is every day from 4pm to 6pm on craft tap beers, Duckpoint wines and even Veuve Clicquot Champagne!
With a fully-enclosed heated outdoor area, GPK is just the location to watch the world go by.
Located just opposite the Bruce Mason Theatre and two minutes' walk from Takapuna Beach, GPK is the ideal spot for a pre-show dinner or quick pizza after a walk on the beach.
All items on the new Spring menu are available as takeaway. Don't forget to collect your pizza box loyalty tokens - buy 10 get one free!
