Before heading down to the cricket on Friday, we took advantage of Logan Brown’s cricket Long Lunch. A number of venues are offering special lunches during the ICC World Cup, when there are matches on in Wellington - from Logan Brown and Zibibbo at the top end, to more "pub grub" establishments such as The Old Bailey and D4.
We arrived in good time, and immediately ordered two of their special cocktails – “The Geoffrey Boycott” – a double serving including a vanilla vodka, strawberry coulis, egg white and sparkling rosé, and a frozen Pimms with mint and fruit.
The first course was a selection of tapas – we demolished these before I thought to take a picture. Oh well. The air-cured beef was particularly good…well, it was all good, but the beef stood out. The bloody mary shots were nice and spicy, and that’s the way I like it. We also shared a bowl of olives and garlic – I had the olives, Nicola had the garlic.
The dessert was a vanilla custard topped with cherries, and served with almond shortbread.
We finished up in good time to walk up to the stadium to watch the cricket match. New Zealand won, in case I hadn’t mentioned that already.
