Kumeu landmark: The Fireplace has revitalised the well- known building with a great bar and Euro-style brasserie. In the year since The Fireplace Bar & Brass- erie first opened in refurbished premises for- merly occupied by Sangam Restaurant, it has quickly established itself as a popular local meeting place with a relaxed vibe and a great value menu of Kiwi/ European food. With its divided bar and restaurant areas, natural flow to covered decks, plus a function room upstairs, it has all your social and special event dining covered. The year has also given The Fireplace chefs time to refine the menus for lunch, dinner and dessert. They ve devised an inviting bar menu -- and with new summer hours are also open for Break- fast/Brunch from 10.30am Saturdays and Sundays. The menus have any number of attractive options. The meals are not over-complicated -- just excellent ingredients prepared simply and well. Starters feature flavoursome options like smoked salmon; lambs fry and bacon; chilli king prawns; and green lipped mussels in sweet chilli sauce. You ll find much var- iety in the mains -- from favourites like fish n chips and butter chicken to stunning dishes like pork belly with tiger prawns; plus the best steaks around -- while the desserts provide a satisfying conclusion to any meal. Locals enjoy the excel- lent Specials offered dur- ing the week: Monday s Kids dine free when dining with parents; Hungry Tuesdays with all mains at $19.90; and Thursday Curry night, for those who miss their Sangam curry fix! Happy hour is from 4-6pm on Thursdays and Fridays, with beers and wins priced from just $5. Bar patrons can watch Sky Sport on the large screen TV. The private room upstairs is ideal for birthday parties, corpor- ate meetings or functions, seating up to 30 people.
