Neat Places: eating out in an earthquake devistated city

"Neat Places is an essential guide to the distinctive restaurants, cafés, bars, shops and galleries in New Zealand. Well, Christchurch, Wellington and Oamaru for starters. Our aim is to unveil the treasured places and celebrate the spirit of this eclectic mix of towns (with more to come!). Whether you're a local or just visiting, you'll find something here that tickles your fancy."

(Marcia Butterfield)
