Chefs Warehouse at Beau Constantia
Cape Town, South Africa
A modernist glass-and-wood marvel perched over a replete kitchen garden on the glorious hills of Constantia wine country. Could it get any better? Well, yes. Local chef Ivor Jones ensures Chefs Warehouse’s stronghold in the realm of winery restaurants, bringing with him a raft of experience from South African icons The Test Kitchen and La Colombe, managing to tread the very fine line between informal, relaxed eatery, superlative service and exemplary cooking. His four-course menu is as playful manifestation of bold, well-travelled flavour, modern technique, a hint of nostalgia and refined experimentation rooted in grassroots suppliers and Constantia’s abundant produce. Case in point – coal-roasted line fish with Balinese sambal; venison tartare with bramble jellies, truffle and chestnut and a wild honey and lavender crème with honeycomb and smoked cassia bark ice cream. A glorious terrace space is on hand for clement days, while kitchen tables offer a front-row seat for the ultimate epicurean. It's all backed by boutique Beau Constantia and knockout views.
