Thursday, 9 May 2013, saw the launch of a refreshing new grand menu for Cape Royale’s Bistro 1800. Cape Royale Luxury Hotel and Spa treated guests to a special three course journey from the VIP Sky Bar to Bistro 1800 restaurant, catering a selection of delicious dishes from their new menu for an exclusive first-hand experience. These bite size dishes were perfectly paired with a variety of Nitida wines.
Chef, Jonathan Gargan, and Food and Beverage manager, George Sakulias, combined local, fresh ingredients, innovation and professional artistry to present a menu which offers uncomplicated and flavourful dishes. “There are many factors that come into play when compiling a menu”, says Sakulias, “firstly you have to decide on the concept that you would like to achieve and the identity of what you would like to establish. The concept created for Bistro 1800 is hearty, comfort food where the guest may treat themselves to an experience that is authentic, but homely”.
Bistro 1800 believes that providing seasonal foods to a health-conscious clientele is very important. It is also important to maintain the integrity of the food source when cooking with specific ingredients. Simplicity is the secret when it comes to describing the overall style of the revamped menu.
The name Bistro 1800 is derived from the restaurant’s signature New York-style grill, which cooks the perfect steak at exactly 1800 degrees Fahrenheit. The grill seals the juices and allows the flavours to open up. Other than the wide variety of specially selected succulent steaks, new dishes also include Grilled lion of Lamb (R135); phyllo baked Atlantic Salmon (R139); Kingklip en papilote (125) and Slow roast breast of duck (R125) – good quality food prepared with an honest Bistro style. Guests may also treat themselves to Tribe coffee that has a creative fusion of up to nine different coffees from around the world – a brand new addition to Bistro 1800.
Bistro 1800 is the type of restaurant to visit repeatedly as it offers good value for money with an excellent dining experience, a homely feel and a variety of seasonal specials. Visit Bistro 1800 at the Cape Royale Luxury Hotel and Spa on 47 Main Road, Green Point, Cape Town, South Africa.
