Situated in the heart of Sandton, Epicure restaurant boasts 160 seats including terraced tables, a 40-seater private dining room and a walled, lush, lawn perfect for picnics. Epic Bar and Cure Deli compliment the culinary chic. Exquisite décor, superb service and fine food accompany breakfast, lunch, dinner and late-night African street food tastes.
Menus change according to the chef’s inclination but consistently offer a taste of our time and space. Coconut-basted crabs pay homage to the wonders of West African seafood. Slow-cooked Nguni oxtail serve southern African comfort and luxury. Magnificent mabele (sorghum) topped with wild mushrooms include vegan, low GI and gluten intolerants in the gastronomic journey.
Epicure has a space to match each and every mood. The private dining room is ideal for discrete business discussions. The garden is great for starlit romantic rendezvous. Sociable cocktail sessions bubble at the bar. From first aperitif to last petit four indulgence and ease combine with safe parking and superb service to make Epicure Johannesburg’s destination du jour.
Epicure was founded by the multi award-winning chef Coco Reinarhz. His food philosophy always engages with what it means to be African in a global gourmet context. With a childhood spent at his mother’s side in her restaurant in Kinshasa and a formal training at the Ecole Hotelière de Namur in Belgium, Reinarhz is uniquely qualified to lead the new wave of South African cuisine.
Under his careful stewardship, modern French flair and exquisite African innovation consistently make respectful and compatible culinary companions. First at Ma Passion in Greenside and more recently at Morningside’s Sel et Poivre, the Johannesburg food scene has enthusiastically embraced this signature style.
