Restaurant image

Set in a Sir Herbert Baker building dating back to 1902, with several inter-leading rooms, the space is jaw-droppingly beautiful. High-ceilings and parquet flooring have been beautifully restored and the restaurant shares the premises with a bookshop, creating a brilliant look and feel. Exquisite art hangs on the walls, with a customised room featuring as a gallery.

Aimed at high-end guests, the menu is sophisticated.

    Food24 eats at... at 6 Spin Street Restaurant

    by: Sam Wilson
     
     

     

    I like a good lunch as much as the next greedy food editor. (Actually, given our relative sizes, perhaps more. Damn you, Justine Drake.)

    Add to that the fact that my husband runs Lobby Books, which shares space with 6 Spin Street Restaurant in the palatial Herbert Baker lobby of Cape Town’s Idasa Building, a mere 3 minute walk from Parliament and my own office... and well, you can see my problem.

    6 Spin Street Restaurant is run by Robert Mulders, originally of Rozenhof fame. Robert is one of the few people in my life who makes the word élan leap to mind, although maybe that’s just because I need classier friends.

    Sandwiches

    Robert makes lunching at 6 Spin Street Restaurant incredibly easy. Feel like a sandwich? There’s a menu for that. I am particularly fond of the rare beef fillet, red lettuce and wholegrain mustard, although the chicken mayo and watercress is also delicious, as is the Emmenthaler, pesto and rocket. (See? I told you I eat there a lot.)

    A sandwich, at last check, will set you back R45. If you’re up for something more substantial, Robert also has his ‘Quick Spin’ lunch menu, where R150 will get you a starter, substantial main, glass of wine and a cup of coffee or tea for afters.

    Quick spin lunch menu

    This menu changes from day to day, with two choices per course, but I can vouch for the feta salad - six types of leafy, Soetmuis biodynamic cheese and the best vinaigrette I have ever tasted (soya and orange!) – as well as the chermoula roasted chicken breasts and fennel, olive and orange-dressed kingklip. I’ve also had a fresh salmon trout mousse, which I found a touch bland, possibly because I was pining for that nummy vinaigrette.

    I had a spritzer of Iona Sauvignon Blanc and no coffee, and my bill (R120) thoughtfully reflected this.

    A la carte

    Should neither a sandwich or a set menu appeal to you... you can also order a la carte. (I am currently saving up for the crispy roast duck with van der Hum and ginger glaze (R175) because, come on.... how fabulous does that sound?

    And that’s not all. Want a little brainfood too? If Idasa’s Democracy Centre is running a lunchtime talk, 6 Spin Street Restaurant makes a nifty paper bagged lunch for you to nibble on while you listen – a sandwich (of the varieties described above, plus juice/water, a fruit and a cupcakey thing – all for R45.)

    I know I am biased, but I like 6 Spin Street Restaurant. And for this review, Robert better give me that vinaigrette recipe.
