Smouldering embers are commonplace at New Plymouth’s popular restaurant in the suburb of Fitzroy. Ember fires up their Argentinian Asado Grill Fireplace daily to deliver exceptional feeds from brunch to dinner. Housed in a former TSB bank, the space has been transformed into a warm and inviting spot for quintessential casual dining. 

For those seeking superb cuts of dry-aged meats, you’ll be right at home at Ember as the restaurant has a focus on quality meat dishes. They recently invested in a smoker to compliment the centrepiece grill, so while some cuts are better suited to the grill, others like pastrami short rib and brisket shine after a stint in the smoker. If meat isn’t your thing, there are a bunch of other yummy mains, small dishes and shared plates to work your way through. There’s even a “Little Embers” menu for the kiddlywinks so everyone can scoff at a delicious meal. Proudly in cahoots with much-loved Good George Brewing, Ember, offers a fantastic roster of beers and ciders from their partner in crime. The well-rounded wine list won’t disappoint either and if you’d prefer to push the boat out you can always opt for a cocktail. We’re looking at you, Strawberry Caipiroska. 

You can watch the magic happen in the open kitchen as the chefs busily prepare dishes on the flaming grill, a spectacle in itself. We shuffled into one of their cosy booths for the evening and welcomed the attentive and friendly service. You can almost guarantee your chargrilled rib-eye steak will be served with a beaming smile, and soon enough you’ll be doing the same.
