The initials stand for Gourmet Pizza Kitchen or Gourmet Pizza Konnection—take your pick. This corner eatery was the city's pioneer posh pizza place and soon afterward spawned a sister establishment in Takapuna at 162 Hurstmere Road and another in Albany at 198-200 Albany Road. Some of the toppings would make a traditionalist squirm (tandoori chicken with banana and yogurt), but there are plenty of more traditional toppings, and they cook a great steak. The menu also
features seasonal treats like Bluff Oysters. The wine and beer list is impressive.
