As one era ends another commences. With The Tasting Room at Le Quartier Français having closed recently La Petite Colombe will take its place from 1 August. La Petite Colombe is a new partnership between the Leeu Collection and the proprietor chefs of La Colombe, Scot Kirton (Eat Out Chef of the Year 2015) and James Gaag.
Kirton and Gaag will be directing a highly talented team “to honour the heritage of this fine venue and marry it with the La Colombe magic”. The Franschhoek kitchen will be headed up by the talented La Colombe chef, John Norris-Rogers, who will be working side-by-side with chefs Scot and James.
La Petite Colombe will feature a striking new interior, styled by architect Rohan Young and the Leeu Collection’s interior designer, Beverley Boswell. The interiors will be classic, with a modern-country accent.
Eight- and twelve-course tasting menus will be offered. The menus will share a stylistic and flavour familiarity with those of the award-winning La Colombe, focusing on the finest local and seasonal produce, and recommended with a rare and fine wine selection. Along with the familiarity a surprise, or two, is also promised…
La Petite Colombe will open on the 01 August 2017, with online reservations now available via the website.
