Sevruga Restaurant at the V&A Waterfront in Cape Town has relaunched with a fresh new look just in time for the festive season.
I arrived at the official launch event just as the sun set over the azure waters between luxury yachts with a glimpse of Table Mountain in the background that I almost felt like typing #blessedlife in my first social media post – the location is really that perfect!
The mood is perfect for a romantic dinner or brunch with the girls. Green colour schemes and tropical prints are more prominent indoors and converts to more lighter and feminine touches when you step outside to the open air dining area.
My favourite piece of furniture decor was the pineapple chair! A few of the bloggers attending the event, all had a moment when they saw these beauties and I made a vow to myself that I will come back to take the perfect Instagram photo of me on that chair holding my morning cappuccino… shhh! Don’t tell anyone my idea just yet.
“A fresh approach is the only approach, you won’t find any frozen items on Sevruga’s menu” Mike Townsend, new owner.
Seafood and sushi remain popular choices on the brand new menu and new items to look out for and indulge in include a starter of seared scallops served with cauliflower puree, crème fraiche, anchovy, caper berries and salmon roe; a main meal of pan fried prawns with garlic, chilli, lemon, parsley, smoked paprika aioli and your choice of hand cut chips or rice pilaf. I have a feeling that their poke bowls are also going to be a crowd favourite!
But let’s not forget about dessert – you can never go wrong with a classic crème brûleè served with boudoir biscuit and fresh berries. Almost too gorgeous to eat, but an absolute feast for your taste buds.
“We have put together a team of the best staff Michael have worked with in the industry, including procurement, in-house design, graphic design, marketing, social media, kitchen operations, chefs, HR, admin, and front of house training in food and beverages. We cannot wait to share this incredible restaurant!” adds Townsend.
