So, a little bird tells me that it is all happening at the Big Pink thing behing the Labia…you know…the Mount Nelson!
Yip, the legendary restaurant, Cape Colony , will be closing at the end of July, and something brand new and VERY exciting shall open in its place on 1 November 2010. They will be doing an overhaul of the original dining hall and turning it into something slick and stylish…hope someone makes me slick and stylish when I am over 100 years old!!
Anyway, the Executive Chef Rudi Liebenberg and his team of specialist chefs are in the process of testing recipes which will form the basis of the new restaurant menu, and the hotel’s Food and Beverage team is compiling a new wine list to complement it. This sounds very exciting and I certainly hope that the barren manscape has changed to feature a few suitors that might like to entertain me at the Cape Colony!!
Don’t forget that the Winter Special of a 5 Course meal for R200 per person is still running at the Cape Colony until the end of July…so get there quickly before the overhaul begins!!
