It's a Sign
I love a good sign and when it's on a classic old building now housing one of the capital's best restaurants, so much the better. Once the National Bank of New Zealand, this wonderful ediface sits on the corner of Cuba and Vivian Streets - a scruffy (though trendy) area that belies the elegance and sophistication of the dining experience within.
I love the way cities morph and change in this way - a bank giving way to a restaurant, a former shady, redlight district giving way to hip boutique stores and posh restaurants and trendy cafes. It's what makes a city interesting.
