Behind the scenes: One night at Ombra

While you’re fixated on the dish in front of you, we wanted to see what goes on behind the scenes during Visa Wellington On a Plate. Whether it’s the quiet before the storm, the coordinated chaos, or the slow burn towards close – photographer Luke Browne takes us behind some of Wellington’s eateries for one night in this photographic series.


The Venetian-inspired menu at Ombra is a selection of dishes that send you to the backstreet bars they originate from. A bustling atmosphere imported from Italy, paired with plates designed for sharing makes Ombra a favourite spot for foodies.
