Thrice as nice: Bon Pinard opens on Shore

Francophiles and North Shore locals are in for a très bien treat with the opening of Bon Pinard, a new French wine bar in Birkenhead.

Husband-and-wife team Jordan and Sarah Macdonald are behind the new opening, with the couple's other hospo babies Duo and Osteria Uno just a couple of doors down on historic Hinemoa Street.

With the name Bon Pinard translating to ‘good wine’ in French slang, the focus here is on small snack-style plates, French-inspired cocktails and a mostly French, European and New Zealand wine list.

Perfect for an after-work aperitif or a leisurely afternoon or evening with friends, it’s also the ideal spot at which to savour a crisp white burgundy or a big Central Otago red before moving on to a delightful dinner next door.
