The finest menu in Wellington has been named, with top restaurant The White House claiming the title.

The award is part of the the Wellington on a plate festival.

White House chef Paul Hoather says he'd been developing his menu since January and is over the moon with the award.

"Considering that Wellington is the food capital of New Zealand, there was a lot of stiff competition out there."

Matterhorn, Martin Bosley's and Logan Brown all made the finals.
