Societi Bistro Year End Function
It’s that time of the year again where we are all on the hunt for the best venue possible for Year-end Functions or to celebrate your nuptials with a Saturday brunch reception. Look no further…
Set in a beautifully restored Georgian home, at the foot of Table Mountain in Cape Town’s Orange Street and on the doorstep of the legendary Mount Nelson and Labia, lies Societi Bistro. An oasis in the city centre, offering modern rural cooking in a relaxed, friendly environment. Need we add that Societi Bistro is not just renowned for its great food but boasts some of the best trained staff in Cape Town. Societi Bistro is a neighbourhood “local”. A sanctuary for Capetonians and visitors looking for a home from home experience. More than cuisine – it’s a way of life – taking time to savour a meal and enjoy the company of family and friends. The heart and soul of Societi Bistro remains its menu – adapted seasonally – proving their love for seasonal produce, accessible food and offering exceptional value. Simply put: Societi Bistro creates memories!
A bistro is, in its original Parisian incarnation, a small restaurant serving simple meals in a modest setting. Bistros were defined mostly by the foods they served: French home-style cooking, and slow-cooked foods. Societi echo’s this very homely environment by serving un-garnished humble fare in our warm moody-lit space. Guests, like the establishment, are festive, casual and, like the Parisian children of the revolution, occasionally exuberant!
Sustainable and locally sourced produce is now a given for any restaurant competing for the attention of discerning and educated diners. What sets Societi Bistro apart is their use of local ingredients in a global context, for example using local venison in a traditionally European rural recipe or a locally produced herb or vegetable in an Asian context.
Rural food is often simple and robust – by adding local, sustainable produce and perhaps a lightness to the recipe we are adding a modern touch that appeals to today’s urbanite? It is rural traditional cuisine, served in an urban environment – creating contemporary classics.
