Five Boroughs Pop-Up

Truffle fried chicken and crack fries by way of Wellington.

Wellington's Five Boroughs was a New York-style diner known for its bottomless coffee and decor lifted straight from a Woody Allen film. Last making an appearance in 2017 with a whole menu takeover at Culprit — and closing its doors for good in May — the eatery will once again head north to hawk its American-influenced diner food.

Health fiends should set aside June 25–29 for a cheat day — Five Boroughs' menu holds no punches with truffle fried chicken and crack fries topped with cheese and gravy. You can also expect a range of burgers, from double cheese to fried chicken, and sides like mac 'n' cheese and charred cos lettuce.

Five Boroughs will pop up in Ponsonby Social Club's backroom from 5pm until late.
