When Euro opened 22 years ago, it was a pioneer in New Zealand and quickly became one of Auckland’s lauded fine-dining spots – with all the emphasis placed on delivering exquisite cuisine. Euro went on to re-define the dining scene once again, placing an emphasis on culture and art. Euro no longer exists, but the legacy is as relevant now as it ever was.
