Epicure Restaurant

  3 Lower Rd, Morningside ,   Sandton          +27 10 594 5336     20 Aug 2018
created 31 Jul 2018
This plush 160-seater restaurant and bar with a terrace and enclosed garden in upmarket Morningside is home to Belgian-Burundian chef Coco Reinarhz's innovative global African cuisine.

Opened in March 2018 Epicure is an elegant setting for exciting dishes inspired by  destinations from Morocco to Angola, Ethiopia to Senegal. Award-winning Chef Coco has built a large and loyal following and you'll likely be dining next to people from across the globe, diplomats and dignitaries, as well as visiting celebrities.

The interiors are supremely elegant, a combination of plush royal blue and copper and gold colouring, velvets and leather, with a seating area that resembles a wooded forest grove, where people would gather in traditional African settings. There is also a private dining area. 

His wide and innovative menu (a work of art in itself, boxed into wooden frames that you unfold across the table) is paired with an extensive wine list, plenty of Champagne and a fine cigar selection. Rum is the flavour of the day so speciality cocktails are a must-try. From Senegalese-style tuna loin and West African seafood dishes to North African tajine and Angolan-style confit chicken gizzards, Chef Coco's dishes burst with colour and flavour.

Even Epicure's breakfast menu is a trip across the continent with Tunisian shakshuka (there is also a vegan version), and South African-style vetkoek fritters with spicy chakalaka relish and boerewors on the menu. Each dish has been carefully named and the menu is an exciting read. The small plates 'tapas' bar snacks include Wonderful Wats, Ethiopian-style, berbere-spiced doro wat chicken stew with injera pancakes and our name favourite, the Rolex, a Ugandan-style miniature chapati wrap filled with beef or vegetable curry. Whatever the meal you are in for a feast.
