Franschhoek, South Africa
Pops of apple-red, a porcelain cow’s head on the wall and overflow seating on the porch keep the vibe somewhere between a classic bistro and contemporary farmhouse. Nose-to-tail enthusiast and forager extraordinaire Chris Erasmus bases his eclectic menus on what he finds that day in the lush hills surrounding the city, as well as the harvest of small farms in the valley. Smoky whey-braised brisket is served with an earthy forest mushroom ragout, while blueberry and poplar nougat arrives on a plate sprinkled with honeybush sherbet.
