Pigalle-Sandton weaves baroque magic into Jozi's newest urban-chic venue
South Africa, Gauteng, October 2005; Silk drapes, glass balustrades, mahogany tables, Spanish-imported chandeliers…put these luxurious items together and you have the latest super-stylish Pigalle restaurant from legendary dining gurus Naldo & Victor Goncalves.
The 160 seater, Pigalle-Sandton located in the new Michelangelo Towers, surpasses all possible expectations; an exquisite ode to Baroque - the venue drips style and decadence. A dedication to creating only the best has seen the brothers importing the finest Italian marble, hanging gorgeous oil paintings and incorporating an unbelievably rich palette of chocolate browns and opulent golds.
Located in the newly constructed and highly impressive Michelangelo Towers at Nelson Mandela Square, Pigalle-Sandton is going to be swinging open their doors soon and the stream of Jozi socialites is set to be swift and steady. Pigalle-Sandton is the place, the benchmark in urban chic dining. The beautiful people will be swarming to the elegant establishment to wine and dine like Kings and Queens.
The lavish décor is matched by the succulent menu; appetisers of escargot and smoked salmon start the culinary extravaganza with main dishes ranging from grilled ostrich fillet in red wine to lobster thermidor, a dinner can be smoothly rounded off with dessert such as a melt-in-your-mouth crème brulee or a rich chocolate mousse. A lazy after dinner coffee is transformed into yet another unique experience with speciality varieties like the Royal or Jamaican coffees on offer.
Pigalle-Sandton has creatively pulled together elements of luxury and fine dining and has finished off with true Baroque attitude and urban style – the result is another distinct Pigalle personality.
The Pigalle concept has been what can only be called a raging success and has risen to become one of the recognised leaders in creative fine dining. The original Pigalle – Greenpoint, the recently opened Pigalle – Bedfordview and now the Pigalle – Sandton are individual with a common theme of the exquisite whilst each has a definite character and décor to thrill and amaze.
Naldo and Victor Gonçalves have leading status for outstanding cuisine but their recipe for success is undoubtedly their exceptional ability to create an overall unique and truly unforgettable dining experience.
