Vic Road Kitchen’s front of house Harriet Byrnes, head chef Ian Shields and backer Paul Byrnes (former Turners Automotive CEO and current Deputy Chairman) have agreed a lease with Auckland Transport to operate a fish restaurant on Devonport Wharf, in the space next door to the Tui Gifts shop.
Operating as Ship to Shore Restaurant Group Ltd, the planned business will be trading as Fish Kitchen. They are currently applying for a license to serve alcohol seven days a week between 8am and 1am.
At a planning committee hearing on 2nd July, Auckland Council approved the granting of a nine year tenancy to Ship to Shore Restaurant Group Ltd at Unit 3, Devonport Wharf, for a seafood restaurant and takeaway.
An email to Vic Road patrons reads:
We are excited to formally announce that the team at Vic Road Kitchen are opening a new venture – situated in the Devonport Wharf. The space will operate as a casual all-day eatery featuring fish ‘n chips, New Zealand seafood, freshly shucked oysters, burgers, soft-serve ice-creams and more.
As with Vic Road Kitchen, you can expect the same attention to detail and high quality, seasonal and sustainable ingredients. And of course, a wine and beer list to compliment this including three wines on tap!
The space will also feature a take-away fish ‘n chip hatch and a wet fish counter selling fresh and sustainable fish to take home.
