Brian Berkman’s Top 10 Cape Town Restaurants – 2009/2010
“Buitenverwachting’s historic wine farm setting is about the only thing traditional here. Chef Edgar’s favourites are items like springbok with Christine (the estate’s flagship wine) jus and other crowd pleasers while other items hint at deconstructed or molecular gastronomy associated with The Fat Duck and El Bulli.”
