Restaurants in Cape Town come and go, and the industry is as cutthroat as anywhere in the world.
Whilst some institutions seem to have it down to a fine art, other locations in and around the city have a new name attached every year or so.
Those restaurants are no longer around because they more than likely couldn’t cut it, but we’re here to talk about a different kind of disappearing dining experience.
Ideas Cartel, which offers luxury workspaces, exclusive events, private members clubs, and lounges in and around the Cape Town CBD, is set to host their next Disappearing Dining Club on Thursday, February 6, at The Foundry (1 Sand Hill Road, in Green Point).
This unique dining experience, with a maximum capacity of 20 people, will consist of a six-course tasting menu inspired by the flavours and stylings of South American cuisine, curated by their Executive Chef, Luis Carlos, who hails from Colombia.
Luis (above on our left) was classically trained in Buenos Aires, and will be aided by another esteemed chef, Jon Evans (above right), from northern California.
Jon moved to the Mother City in 2018, where he has worked as a Head Chef, Executive Chef, and General Manager at several well-known restaurants.
Word on the street is that you can expect some truly stunning ceviche, seafood, steaks, and sangria, with the event putting a fine-dining spin on South American cooking, something that is rarely seen, especially in South Africa.
The evening will begin with Latin American-inspired cocktails and canapés and features a beautiful selection of wines, mixed drinks, and cocktails paired with the food.
Those cocktails will be prepared by sommelier and award-winning mixologist Andrew Copsey, who hails from the most coveted bars in London and luxurious resorts worldwide.
He’s mixed drinks for the Queen herself, so you know he means business.
In addition, there will be live music upstairs in the Cartel House Members’ lounge, Frontier, both before and after dinner.
(Regular, day-to-day access to Frontier, as well as a number of other perks, forms part of the Cartel Members Club. Members can make use of the members’ lounges, gyms, bars, restaurants and rooftop pools, as well as discounts at the Cartel Hotels.)
To purchase tickets to the Disappearing Dining Club on Thursday, February 6, use the Ideas Cartel app, with each ticket costing R1 200.
You can also mail email@example.com for ticket-related inquiries.
That’s a cocktail and canapé reception, six courses paired with wine and cocktails, and live music in Frontier before and after the dinner.
It’s sure to be a night that gets the Cape Town ‘foodies’ talking, so get your ticket before the 20 spots are all taken.
