Greenhouse, The Cellars-Hohenort’s award-winning restaurant, has undergone a stunning contemporary facelift. Journalist Natalie Boruvka checks it out
“We used minimal timber tables of charcoal stained ash, while the chairs have been softened with warm tones of blond ash timber and oyster-coloured leather. This simple palette of charcoal and warm honey is richly offset by a selection of contemporary art inspired by plants, fruit and nature,” says interior designer Dawn Dickinson.
The food by Peter Tempelhoff remains fun and edgy, yet recognisable. “Combining innovation without losing classical cooking fundamentals and combinations is our goal,” he says. Guests can expect an exploration of local ingredients, flavours and African food fables.
Dishes include ‘four degrees of cheese’ featuring South Africa’s most awarded indigenous cheese, Huguenot from Dalewood. This dish explores its diverse flavour profile through a range of temperatures from freezing to hot.
“I absolutely love the new space we’ve created and feel that the food and decor work in complete harmony, giving our guests a totally modern, relaxed and unique dining experience,” says Peter.
