1: The Kingslander

Not just for the game day crowds, the Kingslander's carvery buffet (basic $15, gold $45) has turkey as well as the usual pork, lamb, beef and chicken and a terrific array of sides and sauces.

470 New North Rd, Kingsland.

2: The Backyard

This North Shore institution (remember the Poenamu?) believes in generous servings of roast salmon or lamb rump, as well as the usual chicken and beef. Chef uses only local produce and meats, organic and free-range goods and makes bread, bases and sauces on site.

31 Northcote Rd, Northcote.

3: Knights on Albert, Stamford Plaza

Fine food in a luxury hotel setting makes for a special weekend outing. Try the angus beef sirloin, slow-roasted pork hock or honey mustard lamb. Be completely greedy and stay on for high tea.

22 Albert St, City.

4: Your place
