The Station on Bree is doing something a little cray. And, although it is a little cray, it’s going to make our weeks to come that much more bearable, fun and entertaining.
Ever feel like the weekend can’t come soon enough? And Friyay seems lightyears away? Well, The Station on Bree is saving your summer with the launch of their Thursday REveal which is hosted by local talent and internationally renowned DJ, saxophonist and percussion specialist, George Sax.
We had the pleasure of listening to him for a couple of hours at the launch and, I am not going to lie to you, he is nothing less than absolute brilliance.
Since opening in 2016, The Station on Bree quickly because a firm fave for Capetonians and tourists alike, with their brand-spanking-new summer menu filled to the brim with an array of delish food items, a cocktail menu that makes me weak at my knees and now, Thursdays that will be filled with entertainment by George Sax and an array of home-grown talent who will showcase the best of what Africa has to offer.
Their new menu continues their manner of ‘unpretentious street food’, strutting their Med-infused dining style that has a strong focus on fresh flavours and simple ingredients, all of which are used for both lunches and dinners and in their main meals and small ‘sharing’ plates.
During the launch we got to try some amazing samplers, some of which included calamari, chicken livers, hake and chips. Each of which were super tasty, fresh and could be and left us wanting more!
Being our first time at The Station on Bree, I thought I would talk about the venue, as we did not know what to expect. Taking me back to the London Underground – got to love it – the restaurant boasts several stations and platforms, each offering specific services (like coffee, cocktails and a leisurely dining experience).
Okay, now the most exciting part (well, the part I am most excited about). The Station on Bree has a newly launched gin menu. Yes, a menu dedicated specifically to gin, the most magical spirit on this planet. I could swoon all damn day!
This magical menu offers visitors the chance to craft their own gin and tonic, giving them the opportunity to later botanical flavours with an assortment of lively flavours. I’m in!
In addition to the best gin experience you could ever wish for, they also have a carefully selected wine list made up of some of the Cape Winelands’ finest and a range of local beers on tap just waiting to be tasted.
So much deliciousness, so little time! Bring on the summer, yo’, you know where you’ll find me…
