Food24 eats at... Doppio Zero, Rosebank

Baglett enjoys a fun evening at Doppio Zero in Rosebank.

You think of a chain of restaurants, you think 'boring'. Why would you think that? Jeez, tough crowd. I had the pleasure of popping over to Doppio Zero the other night. With winter in full force, they had to open the double doors to let my coats and I through. Nothing says making an entrance like tripping over your own scarf smashing straight into the glass door while screaming, ‘Crises it's cold!’
The Setting
Two levels of architectural genius. There was a 21st upstairs (I tried to join but they were having none of it) and next to us were two work parties of women who were clearly having an 'I hate men convention'. I did join them and I was made Chairman.
The Food
Soooo many choices. Once you’ve gone through the considerable menu, the waitress will point out the specials board which was the size of the wall of my house. Once the waitress has celebrated two of her birthdays while you decide what you’re having, you look over to the table next to you and ask ‘Oooooh what’s that? Ya, change my order, I want that.’
They’re famous for their pizzas but because of my very strict current diet, I was avoiding carbohydrates. So after finishing their complimentary bread, I moved on to chicken liver pate with bruschetta for starters followed by their veal schnitzel with mushroom sauce. The deserts look amazing but I didn’t have one because my aforementioned diet that I’m sticking to so well.
Price Range
Considering the spot-on service, the awesome almost party-like atmosphere and the little touches like blankets outside for the brave, the well presented, sublime food, it’s incredibly reasonable. Starters averaging at R50, mains generally under a R100 and free mints when you leave – bonus!
Perfect for:
A night with mates, celebrating birthdays, watching sport (there’s an awesome bar and big screen upstairs, but in a classy way) or just grabbing a quick bottle and bite after work.
