Naples Comes to Bree

Bocca – the new Bree Street locale and sister restaurant to the 2013 Eat Out Award’s Best Italian Restaurant, Buratta – is a treat for the senses. While the interiors, executed by Inhouse Brand Architects, are worthy of a Wallpaper magazine spread, the star of the show is indeed the Neopolitana pizza – a style of pizza native to Naples. One bite and you’ll understand why this new eatery is the talk of the town. While there, check out the pizza oven, which was custom made in the Italian city.

Health on the Move

One of our favourite wholesome eating spots, Ginkgo, has moved from Parkview to the historical house Villa d’Este on Jan Smuts Avenue, in the same premises as Camelot Spa. Still offering a selection of fresh, healthy, clean food featuring bright and light flavours inspired by southeast Asia and sourced with whole, organic and free range in mind, the eatery also hosts concerts and talks on its beautiful new deck.

Le Chaim to Sea Point

Kleinsky’s is the realisation of brothers Adam and Joel Klein’s dream of bringing a bit of New York to Sea Point by means of a classy Jewish deli. Think bagels, pickles and latkes but with a contemporary twist in the manner of smoked salmon and wasabi cream cheese bagels, or Nutella-stuffed rugelach. The venue is small but what it lacks in size it more than makes up for with its sumptuous treats that aim to make Jewish food accessible to anyone, and designer-chic cred, highlighted by the patterned wood-clad counter, copper pendant lights and artful blackboard menu.

For those of you who were wondering who the artist is on our beautiful February cover, it’s Lucie de Moyencourt (we should have said so, sorry!). The good news is that she’s just hung a new exhibition at Kleinsky’s

Some Kind of Blue

Tucked among some of Cape Town’s most sought-after heritage homes in the idyllic neighbourhood of Tamboerskloof is Blue Café, the new and improved incarnation of the much loved Daily Deli. Trading as a sidewalk café since 1904, its various owners and identities have, over the years, made it a favourite with Cape Town locals. With a strong focus on community, Blue Café buys most of its fresh produce locally from neighbours who grow their own, and it delivers breakfast, lunch and dinner to regulars in the area. Oh, and the food is sublime, with freshly baked goods, breakfasts and sandwiches as well as a small dinner menu on offer.
