There is a new culinary kid on the block down South. Hunging back from the crowds like cool kids do, Rata is tucked just back from the main flow of foot traffic on Ballarat Street, Queenstown. A collaboration between Michelin starred NZ chef Josh Emett and the experienced local restaurateur Fleur Caulton, Rata has a modern rustic vibe with a subtle but luxurious edge. It’s exciting to see some inspired and exciting interior design arrive in the Southern restaurant scene! Add this to your Queenstown to do list.
