If you want to see trendy Ponsonby at its strutting best and most colorfully diverse, come to SPQR. The menu is just a few strides above average, but it's the atmosphere and the people-watching that make it such a winner. In what was once a tire-retread shop, now stylishly spartan with stainless steel and concrete, the film and media crowd, the gay community, and your average run-of-the-mill Joe Bloggs all lean about looking supercool and hungry. SPQR serves up tasty morsels such as paper-thin Roman pizza with unusual toppings until well after midnight.
