New to Cape Town: Royaltea bar serves premium teas and other treats
Share a Tasting Plate and a Bottle of Wine: Date Night Wednesdays and Fridays
A hidden gem on Orphan street: Small and intimate bistro-style eatery with extra-special date nights
Here’s something you don’t get everywhere: a date night special on a Friday. Following the success intimate new CBD eatery Jéan-Luc’s Kitchen had with their Wednesday date night special, they’ve now included Friday nights, too.
From 5pm–9pm, get a bottle of gorgeous wine and a tasting board for sharing, which includes several bite-sized meals, such as crispy calamari and pan-fried steak. All for R300.
And Jéan-Luc’s Kitchen is kind of ideal for date night. It’s cosy and intimate, so you’re able to have a relaxed conversation without any distractions. Step inside to be greeted by the soft glow of the deconstructed chandelier and the friendly face of manager James Huraumba, who will make sure you’re taken care of for the night. Chef Jéan-Luc Dudley might pop out of the kitchen to say hi.
FUSION OF FLAVOURS
The restaurant conjures up fare ranging from slow-roasted pork belly served with celeriac mash and Asian basting to roasted tomato stuffed with creamy vegetable risotto and balsamic reduction. The eatery caters to all, including vegans, pescatarians and carnivores alike.
Jéan-Luc’s speciality is their tasting board, which is the feature of the date night special. If your sweet tooth can handle it, you can order the dessert option, too, which includes red wine poached pear and a chocolate hotpot.
END THE EVENING WITH A NIGHTCAP
James will sooner or later offer you his signature concoction (usually after dessert) consisting of cognac and a double espresso, which will help settle your food and give you a boost of energy for the drive home.
