Located in the heart of Auckland’s Freemans Bay, Clooney is a partnership between restauranteur Tony Stewart and chef Desmond Harris.
Des is part of the new generation of chefs that have so many influences and options at their disposal. What differentiates Des from the rest is his ability to decipher, develop and deliver something truly quite special on the plate.
Chef Harris’ cuisine melds the tradition of classical cuisine with a contempory approach to ingredients and technique. Clooney’s dishes are continually in progress, reflecting seasonality, inspiration and evolution.
Chef of the year 2013 and only one of 4 three hat chefs in New Zealand, the latest accolades in a career of many.
A raft of industry awards over the past years have sung the praises of the quality and consistency of Clooney’s outstanding cuisine and wine selection, its unique ambience and exceptional service with accolades received from Metro, Cuisine and The Lewisham Foundation.
