Known for its spectacular views from the 53rd floor of the Sky Tower, The Sugar Club is one of the super special restaurants reserved for a romantic birthday dinner. Especially because I had to outdo Jason for picking my birthday dinner at The Engine Room.
I had booked our table months before Jason's birthday because I was so excited.
The Sugar Club in The Sky Tower is the fourth reincarnation of the restaurant since the Peter Gorden opened the first one in Wellington back in 1986. Since then, The Sugar Club has made appearances in London at Notting Hill and West Soho.
The menu here encourages sharing and is quite unique. All the dishes are entrée sized so you can try a wider variety. All dishes are the same price and diners pay for the number of dishes ordered - prices vary from $90 for 3 dishes to $128 for 6 dishes. This way, you don't have to let the price decide your order.

Jason had a Leigh Sawmill Pale Ale which had light citrusy notes.
|Thrice-Cooked Pork Belly|
|Peanut Butter Parfait and Blackberry Jelly|
Needless to say, we were quite satisfied at the end of the evening. The service was very attentive and our waiters were very knowledgable.
The Sugar Club can be found on the 53rd floor of The Sky Tower, at 72 Federal Street, Auckland.
