The 'HIPPO' returns to QT Wellington

QT Wellington’s award-winning Hippopotamus restaurant and cocktail bar will reopen its doors on Thursday. 

A recipient of Two Hats by Cuisine Magazine, the flamboyant French inspired restaurant will return under the direction of Hippopotamus’ food and beverage duo, executive chef Jiwon Do and restaurant manager and head sommelier Florent Souche. The new menu will continue to celebrate sustainable New Zealand producers and a theatrical dining style, all while maintaining its famous French flair.

QT Wellington general manager Ian Charlton says, “ Wellington, we’ve missed you and can’t wait to welcome you back through our doors. We are so happy to be back in full swing in an exciting new way. We’ve loved rising to the creative challenges 2020 presented and plan to continue refreshing our menus around the changing seasons and special occasions. There will always be something new and exciting to look forward to on the Hippo menu.”
