OUR PHILOSOPHY

"My food philosophy is to keep it simple and delicious - reach the peak of flavour."
Laura Greenfield, Dish magazine 2015

We create evocative dishes inspired by European influences that delivers robust flavours full of personality. 

Our menu changes weekly to take advantage of the best produce in season. 

The chain of authenticity and the provenance of food is important to us. This means choosing our suppliers carefully and supporting their craft. 

OUR PLACE

262 Wakefield Street has quite a history. 

Built in the early 1900's as a brass foundry, fifty years later the site was to become a recording studio for the pioneering independent record label TANZA (To Assist New Zealand Artists). The label famously produced “Blue Smoke”, New Zealand’s first all-local hit. The premises then became a bar in various colourful guises before being converted to food service.

Laura Greenfield and Raechal Ferguson opened Field & Green at the site in 2015, after scouring the North Island for a suitable venue. The pair had relocated to New Zealand from London’s food and art scene in 2014. 

By keeping the unique structure of the building and reusing many of the original materials, Field & Green retains a classic feel. Mid-century Sheffield bone and silver cutlery passed down by Raechal's grandmother add a personal touch. Rubber pendant lighting from Denmark and 100% biodegradable chairs from Italy, keep the space feeling fresh, modern and stylish.

“...simple and clean, simultaneously bourgeois and bohemian
David Burton, Dominion Post 2015
