November 2017: It’s been over a year since Chefs opened in October 2016 and to celebrate the eatery is launching new items on the menu for summer. Although the daily options have changed, the same novel formula applies: no waiters, no menus – just great food!
Head Chef Jenny Ward has catapulted Cape Town’s restaurant experience into another orbit. As the many positive reviews attest, Chefs is a place where great food is served without all the fuss that normally surrounds a first-class meal.
Ward is a master of wood-fired cooking and honest food. Her love for simple and traditional cuisine, using fresh and seasonal ingredients from carefully sourced suppliers and her desire to serve her meals as quickly and economically as possible is a winning combination. The new items on the menu for summer will be no exception. Jenny creates her new menu daily depending on the weather and what’s fresh from the suppliers, creatively inspired to keep the element of surprise.
As always, there are only three main meal items (no starters) per day and these are posted on Chefs’ website every morning. This summer, you can expect dishes such as fresh creamy yellowtail tartare or wood-fired roasted chicken basted with rosemary burnt butter. Vegetarian choices include smoky porcini, artichoke and asparagus salad or lemon gnocchi with mushrooms and artichokes. You can top your meal off with tempting treats such as smoky vanilla crème brûlée or a smoky cinnamon puff with dulce de leche.
Visit Chefs at 81 St John’s Street in Gardens, Cape Town for lunch or dinner from Monday to Friday. The kitchen opens at 12h00 and closes at 20h30. Visit www.chefscapetown.co.za to view the menu.
