Meet the team responsible cooking up a storm morning, noon and night.
Out of a passion that first awakened on a school trip to France, our executive chef Nick Harlick has weaved a career full of flavor and adventure and even cooked for a celebrity or two along the way.
Lucky for us and you, he now calls Aria Restaurant and Bar home. Working in a restaurant attached to a hotel means guests from all over the world dine with you daily and that in turn means that a mastery of international cuisines is a must. Using fresh, locally sourced ingredients from the Auckland region, Nick and his busy team try to reflect a varied range of cultures through their dishes.
