Brunch at Mul­berry & Prince

Decked out in a dusty pink and char­coal pal­ette with ac­cents of mar­ble and cop­per, this in­ner-city eatery is primed for In­sta­gram, but what else would you ex­pect from a pair of savvy chefs, trained the Culi­nary In­sti­tute in New York? Co-own­ers and chefs Cor­nel Mostert and Cyn­thia Rivera sought the help of in­te­rior de­signer Adri van Zyl for the ut­terly chic in­te­rior and you can take in the cool faceted art­works by Kurt Pio while en­joy­ing a de­li­cious all-amer­i­can brunch se­lec­tion. 12 Pep­per St, Cape Town mul­ber­ryand­prince.co.za Lunch at Chefs This lit­tle eatery in the leafy sub­urb of Gar­dens, tucked away just down the road from lauded in­ter­na­tional ar­chi­tec­tural firm SAOTA and fur­ni­ture brand OKHA’ is the kind of place that’s al­ways buzzing with cool in­dus­try peo­ple, who come here for the el­e­vated can­teen-style cui­sine – think but­ter­milk and za’tar wood-roast lamb leg or Asian BBQ beef ribs – all served by the chefs them­selves. The set­ting is sim­ple, un­fussy and fresh - a blank can­vas for the colour­ful and art­fully plated food com­ing out of the kitchen. 81 St Johns St, Gar­dens chef­s­capetown.co.za
