The nationwide quest to identify the country’s best steakhouse has come to an exciting conclusion with the announcement of the inaugural winner on Wednesday, 8 May 2013. The Steakhouse Champion of South Africa is the Local Grill in Parktown North.
“The Top Three Steakhouses were all excellent in terms of selection, knowledge, maturation and preparation of their meats, but what gave The Local Grill an edge was the fantastic meat experience it offers in terms of range of cuts (including grass and grain fed) and even choice of bovine. The fact that you get a tour of the meat locker if you show the slightest bit of interest, is also fantastic and says it all about a place that truly “preaches” steak,” says Convenor JP Rossouw, founder and editor of Rossouw’s Restaurants guide to dining in South Africa.
Known as a carnivore’s paradise, Carne SA serves an exclusive selection of the finest cuts of Romagnola beef, Dorper lamb, game and more. Situated in Keerom Street, the wood-beamed lower level of the restaurant emanates a stylish yet simple ambiance, which compliments the dishes on the menu. As you walk upstairs you step into the open-plan lounge and kitchen, accompanied by a well stocked bar which is an ideal place to enjoy a drink before dinner. If you decide to visit Carne SA anytime soon, you cannot leave without trying the 1.2kg Florentine beef steak. It’s a must have for any red meat lover.
The awards were held at renowned chef Luke Dale-Roberts’ famed Pot Luck Club, where his innovative platters of excellent Chalmar Beef are accompanied by The Wolftrap wines. Very proud winner, Steve Maresch of The Local Grill and runners-up, Martin Lombard of Little Havana and Giorgio Nava of Carne SA, were all in attendance to receive their respective awards.
The Pot Luck Club is one of Cape Town’s sexiest new hot spots. Located in the Silo Building at the Old Biscuit Mill in Woodstock, Chef Luke offers a unique selection of ‘small plates’ of modern global dishes which include Asian-influenced pork belly served with XO dressing, Cumberland sausage and red onion rolls, red cabbage and apple slaw, duck spring roll, and steamed queen scallops in the shell with Asian-style grapefruit sauce vierge.
With its hip and happening ambiance and contemporary cool setting, the Pot Luck Club is the prerfect venue for small groups of people who love sharing each others food and trying as much as they can on the menu.
