the ultimate combination in NZ

node x mapu

Discerning eyes will recognize NODE as the same building where Giulio Sturla built Roots, the only 3 hat restaurant outside of the Auckland CBD. Closing down in 2019, Roots has now been reimagined by Giulio and Liz as NODE. With a bespoke test kitchen, Mapu, in the back of the 120-year-old heritage port building, Liz and Giulio work together to bring unforgettable events and experiences to life. From houseplants to luxury degustation dinners in the gardens, NODE has sprung to life as the source that bridges the gap between plants and people. 
Here we offer collabs between NODE and Mapu to offer the best of both worlds. Whether it's our signature tacos and champagne parties, or a privately catered celebration at NODE by Giulio or a divine degustation dinner in the jungle with guest chefs, there will be plenty of delicious collaborations being served up at NODE.

Here at NODE we are always on the lookout for new and exciting collaborations to make use of the space, however, we will always maintain a discerning approach to partnerships in order to remain true to our values and ethics.
